Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 11 Jul 2015 to Monday 20 Jul 2015:

It will stay dry and warm across much of the south through the weekend, but further north and west it will be more unsettled with some spells of rain.

The north and west may be breezy at times, and will have the most frequent periods of rain early next week, while further south and east there will generally be much drier, brighter and often warm conditions. Temperatures will be generally close to or a little above normal, perhaps cooler at times in the northwest and rather warm at times in the southeast at first.

A two way split in the weather seems most likely through this period, with southern and central parts staying generally dry, with fine and often warm conditions. Further north and northwest more unsettled and breezy weather will prevail with rain at times, but also some drier brighter interludes. Temperatures are likely to be close to or a little below normal in the north, with the south and southeast often being warm for the time of year.

Nottingham information

In the East Midlands of England sits the city of Nottingham, a settlement on the river Trent which currently has a population of about 305,000.

Originally famed for its occupation by legendary outlaw Robin Hood, the city of Nottingham boomed during the Industrial Revolution when it became famous around the world for its production of lace and other textiles.

After the Second World War, Nottingham's trademark textile production fell out of favour when the materials were obtained more favourably from Asia and the Far East and today, the city is now home to some of the most renowned companies across many different sectors.

The Nottingham postcode also includes Mansfield to the north, as well as Grantham to the east. The greater Nottingham area is estimated to have about 800,000 inhabitants.

In the city itself there are a great many attractions, with many visitors visiting Sherwood Forest and Nottingham Castle to experience first-hand what life outside the law in the 15th century was like. Every summer the forest hosts the Robin Hood Festival, which is a week-long celebration of the story complete with authentic medieval costumes, re-enactments and live performance of music from the Middle Ages.

As well as a celebration of the past, Nottingham hosts a tribute to the future with its annual GameCity convention. Held at the end of October, it brings together the general public of gaming fans with the writers, designers and developers of some of the best-loved video games in the world, previewing new titles and interviewing gaming talent from all over the world.

Nottingham also attracts a huge following to its sports facilities. Two football teams, Notts County and Nottingham Forest, are divided only by the river Trent but they have contributed to some of the nation's greatest sporting memories in their own way.

Trent Bridge is a regular host of England international cricket matches and Nottingham is also the home of the National Ice Centre stands - perhaps not surprising given that was also the home of Torvill and Dean.
