Issued at: 0500 on Sat 25 Oct 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Windy with frequent showers northwest Scotland. Mostly fine elsewhere.

Frequent showers will push across northwest Scotland, often heavy. It will be windy here too, with coastal severe gales. Variable cloud and sunny spells elsewhere, with a few showers, these mainly in the west.

The very wet and windy weather continues across the northwest. Generally windy elsewhere but much drier and brighter, particularly in the east, with some patchy drizzle in the west.

Wet and windy northwest Monday, drier elsewhere. Wind and rain eases and moves south Tuesday, giving cloud and drizzle for south Britain Wednesday. Drier, chillier weather follows further north.

Issued at: 0500 on Sat 25 Oct 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 29 Oct 2014 to Friday 7 Nov 2014:

A slow moving band of rain over the central parts on Wednesday is expected to slowly weaken. To the north, largely fine with sunny spells after a chilly start. Dull, damp and mild to the south with occasional drizzle. Brighter across southern parts on Thursday with sunny spells. However, rain and strong winds are likely to extend into northwestern areas, before reaching central parts by the end of the day. A north-south split looks most likely to predominate thereafter with the most frequent bouts of wind and rain likely in the north and northwest, with the best of the drier weather in the south and southeast; although there is likely to be some rain here at times. Temperatures generally near normal, although feeling cold in strong winds and rain.

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.

Nottingham

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.
