Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 2 Feb 2015 to Wednesday 11 Feb 2015:

The general cold feel to the weather will continue during the first week of February, as the northerly winds bring hail, sleet and snow showers to the country. Showers will be frequent across northern parts and may affect other coastal areas at times, with widespread overnight frost and ice too. There is a low probability of more widespread rain and snow over southwestern areas, early in the week. Strong northerly winds at first, with gales in places, will lead to a significant wind chill, this gradually easing. The driest and brightest weather will be across sheltered southern parts. There are signals for a change to less cold temperatures and spells of rain by next weekend, though there is still a risk of snow, frost and ice at times.

UK Outlook for Thursday 12 Feb 2015 to Thursday 26 Feb 2015:

It looks most likely that unsettled conditions will continue across much of the UK with temperatures closer to normal when compared to the start of February. This may be more obvious across parts of southern and western Britain where it might be a little wetter than average as spells of wind and rain make their way in from the Atlantic. However, there is the possibility of pressure building around the middle of the month bringing more settled conditions, particularly in the south.

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.
