Regional forecast for West Midlands

Breezy. Mostly dry with some clear spells overnight.

This Evening and Tonight:

Remaining breezy overnight. It will be fairly cloudy, but with some clear spells, these mostly in the east. Most places will stay dry, but cloud may be thick enough to produce some isolated patches of light rain over northern counties. Minimum Temperature 8C.

Sunday:

Another breezy and largely dry day. There will be some cloud, but where breaks develop there will be bright or sunny periods, particularly during the afternoon. Becoming generally cloudy later. Maximum Temperature 15C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Breezy and largely dry Monday, but staying mostly cloudy and mild. Winds ease Tuesday, with a band of rain, moving south across the region. Cooler, drier conditions follow for Wednesday.

Issued at: 1700 on Sat 25 Oct 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Wet and windy throughout in northwest Scotland. Mostly fine elsewhere.

This Evening and Tonight:

Frequent showers continue across northwest Scotland this evening. Then persistent heavy rain arrives here overnight, and into Northern Ireland later. Generally dry elsewhere, but some patchy rain/drizzle in the west. Windy in the north, with severe gales across northwest Scotland.

Sunday:

Staying very wet and windy across northwest Scotland, but rain largely clearing Northern Ireland. Windy elsewhere but much drier and brighter, particularly in the east. Patchy drizzle in the west.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Still wet and windy northwest Scotland, drier elsewhere on Monday. Wind and rain eases and moves south across the UK through Tuesday. Turning drier, and chillier across Britain on Wednesday.

Issued at: 1700 on Sat 25 Oct 2014

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 Sunday 9 Nov 2014 to Sunday 23 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. 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 set to turn more changeable across the south and east. Daytime temperatures will probably be near or a little above normal, although feeling cooler during any wet and windy spells.

Coventry information

Coventry is Britain’s city that is furthest from any coast and is situated 96 miles north-west of London and east of Birmingham.

It is an ancient settlement that was known to exist in the Bronze Age. At the time of the Roman invasion it was in the tribal lands of the Corieltauvi. The Romans established a fort nearby at Baginton.

The city is known for its legend of Lady Godiva riding un-attired through the city, which took place before William of Normandy’s arrival on the English throne.

By the 14th century, Coventry had become an important centre of the cloth trade. Throughout the Middle Ages it was one of the largest and most important cities in England.

In the 18th century Coventry developed as a centre for watch and clock making. By the 19th century these skills transferred to the making of bicycles, which evolved into motorcycle, machine tools and eventually car manufacturing in the 20th century.

As Coventry was such a centre of engineering, it suffered its own Blitz in the Second World War which, through the use of incendiary bombs, saw the destruction of much of the original medieval city centre, which was largely made up of timber framed buildings, alongside the destruction of the 14th century cathedral. Coventry lost 800 people to the bombs and 4,000 buildings.
