Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 22 Sep 2014 to Wednesday 1 Oct 2014:

It is likely to remain largely settled at the start of next week, especially in the south, but a little cooler, especially at night. Variable amounts of cloud in most areas with some bright or sunny spells, but thicker cloud in northwestern parts with some rain or drizzle. Later in the week and thereafter, these more unsettled conditions are likely to spread southeastwards, bringing an increasing risk of spells of rain to much of the UK, but always heaviest towards the north and west, with the best of the dry and bright conditions in the south and southeast. Winds mostly light across the south, but stronger in the northwest, with an increasing risk of gales. Temperatures generally around or somewhat above average, perhaps still warm at times in the southeast.

UK Outlook for Thursday 2 Oct 2014 to Thursday 16 Oct 2014:

The first half of October is likely to see more changeable conditions across the UK, with a mixture of fine and settled weather, interspersed with occasional unsettled spells. The drier and brighter conditions, with some warm sunshine, is then expected to be most prolonged across the south and east, whilst outbreaks of rain would then be most frequent across the north and west. During the more settled conditions daytime temperatures are likely to be around, and often above, average although it could turn quite chilly overnight with a risk of fog patches in places. However during any more unsettled spells, daytime temperatures are then likely to be below or close to average.

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.
