Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 30 Oct 2014 to Saturday 8 Nov 2014:

Becoming generally cloudy across the UK, but staying dry with bright spells across southern and eastern parts on Thursday. Northern and western parts will become wetter with outbreaks of rain. The rain will likely become heavier and more persistent later that day. Winds also increase, becoming strong in the west, and gales may develop across the far northwest. A north-south split then looks most likely to dominate. The most wetter, windier conditions likely in the north and northwest; with gales, perhaps even severe gales in the far northwest, next weekend. The best of the drier weather likely in the south and southeast; although there is likely to be some rain here at times. Temperatures generally near normal, but perhaps falling slightly below average later with snow on Scottish mountains possible.

UK Outlook for Saturday 8 Nov 2014 to Saturday 22 Nov 2014:

The main signal is for a continuation of a north-south split during the second week of November. During this period, the generally westerly flow is likely to bring spells of wet and windy weather, mostly affecting northern and some western areas, but perhaps reaching other areas as well, this interspersed with drier intervals. However, southern and some eastern areas will probably see more in the way of drier and settled conditions increasing the likelihood of some sunshine, but also the risk of frost, mist and fog overnight, the latter of which could be slow to clear. After this it looks like unsettled weather will spread to much of the UK. Daytime temperatures will probably be near or a little above normal, although feeling cooler during any wet and windy spells.

Brighton information

Still one of the most popular seaside destinations in the UK, Brighton has been a tourist hotspot for many years thanks to its climate, nightlife and fantastic shopping.

Like many of the UK’s contemporary seaside cities, Brighton emerged as a popular haven when the practice of bathing in the sea and ‘taking the sea air’ was considered to be beneficial to a person’s health. Growing from a small fishing village, Brighton became a fashionable place to escape to for busy Londoners, frequented by King George IV and other nobles.

While the 1700s did see Brighton grow in popularity, it was the advent of the railway that really helped to boost the city’s profile. Brighton has consistently attracted visitors for day trips, weekends and entire holidays, with its proximity to London has helped create a huge tourist industry that erupted during the Victorian era, with the building of several attractions including the West Pier and the Palace Pier.

Modern-day Brighton has much to echo the luxury of the Georgian and Victorian eras, with a new swathe of independent boutiques opening in key shopping areas of the city, such as The Lanes, which is packed full of quirky shops, jewellers, antiques dealers and specialist restaurants. For those with a taste for the high street, the area around Brighton Town Clock has a huge number of chain stores to echo their larger, London counterparts.

As you might expect from a seaside resort, the beach, marinas and seafront are essential to the culture and nightlife of the city. Bustling bars and galleries line the pebble beach of Brighton, and throughout the year there’s plenty of live music and artistic activities that take place on the seafront, like the Brighton Festival and Brighton Pride. Brighton was the scene of infamous mod and rocker battles in the 1960s, and cutting-edge music is still at the heart of city. Combined with the thriving LGBT scene, Brighton’s reputation as one of the UK’s foremost cities for nightlife isn’t surprising!

Sporting life in Brighton is just as varied as its cultural life, with Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club playing at the American Express Stadium (affectionately known as The Amex) in nearby Falmer. Seafaring sports are also popular, with yachting clubs based around Brighton Marina and the city also hosts the annual Brighton Speed Trials along the seafront, which has been run in Brighton since 1905.
