Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 26 Oct 2014 to Tuesday 4 Nov 2014:

Showery and very windy across northern areas on Sunday and Monday, with a risk of severe gales for a time. Somewhat less windy further to the south, though with increasing amounts of cloud. Into the midweek period, a north-south split looks most probable, with windy and often unsettled conditions continuing in the north and somewhat quieter, drier weather in the south. Temperatures will generally be near normal, although feeling quite cold in the strong winds. Towards the end of October and into early November, the broad north-south split looks set to continue, with northern areas remaining changeable and at times unsettled. Further south, there are hints that pressure may start to rise, increasing the potential for more prolonged drier periods, but with a greater risk of overnight frost and fog.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 5 Nov 2014 to Wednesday 19 Nov 2014:

The main signal is for a continuation of a north-south split during the first half of November. During this period, the generally westerly flow is likely to bring spells of wet and windy weather, interspersed with drier intervals. These should mostly affect northern and some western areas, but perhaps reaching other areas as well at times. However southern and some eastern areas will probably see more in the way of the drier and settled conditions increasing the likelihood of seeing some sunshine, but also the risk of frost, mist and fog overnight, the latter of which could be slow to clear. Daytime temperatures are likely to 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.
