Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 3 Sep 2015 to Saturday 12 Sep 2015:

The gradual change to more settled conditions across the UK continues with plenty of dry and bright weather across much of the UK through the weekend, however there will still be the odd shower around at first, especially towards the southeast. The mostly fine and dry weather is expected to continue through until the middle of September, however there is a risk that more unsettled conditions, with further spells of rain, could push into northwestern parts early next week. Temperatures on the whole will be slightly below average, although it will feel pleasantly warm in the sunny spells and light winds. Overnight temperatures throughout the period are likely to be on the chilly side, with a risk of localised rural frost and fog patches, mainly in the north.

UK Outlook for Sunday 13 Sep 2015 to Sunday 27 Sep 2015:

The generally settled and fine conditions are expected to continue across Southeastern parts of the UK through much of September, with plenty of dry and sunny weather, and only a low risk of short lived spells of cloud and rain. In contrast it is likely to remain on the unsettled side in the Northwest for the majority of the month, with occasional bouts of rain and strong winds likely. Temperatures will generally be around average in most parts, but feeling warm under any prolonged sunny periods in the Southeast by day, with some chilly nights in the North.

London information

The city of London is the capital of England and is located in the South East of England on the river Thames.

London has been a major settlement for approximately two millennia and was originally founded by the Romans. As the capital of England, it is a leading metropolitan city and is one of the world's leading financial hubs.

London is made up of a number of boroughs, stretching from Hillingdon, Hounslow and Richmond in the West, across to Havering, Bexley and Barking & Dagenham in the East. Barnet and Enfield are on the northern edge of the city whilst Croydon, Sutton and Bromley are found in the south.

Unsurprisingly, London one of the world's top tourist cities and it is easy to see why. From fantastic shopping in Kensington & Chelsea through to sightseeing in the historic areas of Westminster, London has something for all tastes and budgets.

For many visitors, the main attraction in London is Buckingham Palace, home to the Queen and various members of the British Royal Family. It has served as the residence of British royals since 1837 and is still today the administrative centre for the Monarch and Royal Family. Hosting 775 rooms, the palace opens only 19 state rooms for tours during the summer, although these are decorated with some pieces from the royal collection and form the heart of the palace.

Sport is a huge part of London life, with Wembley Stadium hosting major events including the FA Cup final and every home England international football match. The city's two major cricket venues, Lords and The Oval, hold regular Test matches and in Newham, the Olympic Stadium played host to the 2012 Olympic Games. The city is also home to some of Europe's leading football clubs, including Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.

London is also at the heart of the tennis calendar every summer during the Wimbledon championships. Some of the world's finest players (and occasionally, the weather) have taken centre stage over the years at SW19 to create some of sports most iconic memories.

At the O2 Arena (formally known as the Millennium Dome), some of the world's leading names from the world of music, sport and entertainment wow the crowds whilst Leicester Square is synonymous with some of the world's best theatre productions.

Outdoor activities are also an important part of life in London and regular concerts and events are held at Hyde Park which, along with Kensington Gardens, features a memorial to the late Diana, Princess of Wales.
