Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 1 Jun 2015 to Wednesday 10 Jun 2015:

Rather unsettled conditions at first with spells of rain interspersed by drier, brighter and more showery interludes. It may be rather windy, particularly in the northwest, with the bulk of the rainfall also here. Southern and eastern areas look best placed for the driest, brightest weather. Temperatures are likely to be below average across the country, but particularly in the northwest. By midweek, unsettled conditions are considered likely to continue in the northwest, with slightly below average temperatures, but more settled, warmer, conditions may start to build in the south. Towards the end of the week these warmer, more settled conditions look likely to spread north to most of the country although perhaps with a risk of showers in the south.

UK Outlook for Thursday 11 Jun 2015 to Thursday 25 Jun 2015:

There is some uncertainty in the likely weather type through this period, however high pressure will have become established to the north of the UK. This would lead to drier, warmer conditions for many, these perhaps most prolonged across the north, but it may also allow some more unsettled, perhaps thundery weather to move up from continental Europe and affect the south of the UK. This trend looks like it may continue into the third week of June with drier than average conditions in the north, however some unsettled spells are also likely to push in from the west at times, as well some thundery outbreaks also coming up from the south.

York information

York is located in the North East of England and is home to around 200,000 people. Its rich and interesting history makes it a popular tourist destination.

York was an important site for both the Romans and the Anglo-Saxons during their occupation of England and, despite damage done after the Norman invasion of 1066, the city continued to prosper. Many of the features of the medieval city remain today. The city walls (known as 'bars') which surrounded the city are still standing, as are the 'Shambles' - a run of butcher shops which still retain some original features. As the seat of an archbishop and an administration centre for the surrounding county of Yorkshire, the city has been the backdrop to many major political events, playing a key role in both the War of the Roses and the English Civil War.

Temperatures in York can fall quite low during winter; with a minimum of 0.8 °C in January, making it the coldest month on average. Days of air frost are higher in number in both February and December - most frequent in the latter. Rainfall, which is not especially high during winter, is at its lowest during February. Whilst days of rain more than 1mm are higher in January than any other month, the average accumulation is not.

In York, temperatures in spring can be fairly mild although the average minimum in March is only 2.4 °C. Generally temperatures are above the UK average though, rising to 16 °C in May. Typically there are more 'rain days' in March although average accumulation is higher in April. May sees a slight decline in rainfall, before volumes increase again over summer.

The city is bordered by the Pennines, the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Wolds, and is based at the convergence of the rivers Ouse and Foss. Within the city there are 34 conservation areas, 2084 listed buildings and 22 scheduled ancient monuments. The most prominent monument in the city is York Minster, an impressive gothic cathedral. York Racecourse also draws thousands of visitors to the city throughout the summer, with the course regarded as one of the finest in flat racing.

July has the highest average temperature throughout the year at 21.2 °C. Temperatures throughout summer in York are above the national average by around 2 °C. Rainfall is highest in summer than any other time of the year although accumulation still comes in below UK averages.

Every September, the city plays host to one of the UK's biggest food festivals. The York Food and Drink Festival, which aims to celebrate the local food of Yorkshire, takes over the city centre for 10 days every year and brings over 440,000 visitors to the city.

It can often stay mild in York during September, with average highs around 18 °C. There is only a very small chance of air frost, around one day every ten years on average. In October the average maximum falls to 13.9 °C, falling again to 9.7 by November, just slightly above the national average.
