UK forecast for the next 5 days

Rain clearing the southeast. Becoming cold and frosty for many.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 28 Nov 2014 to Sunday 7 Dec 2014:

Outbreaks of rain, locally heavy, and strong winds are likely across the west on Friday and into the weekend. The rain and strong winds will push slowly eastwards through the period with southeastern areas perhaps seeing little rainfall. Southerly winds will reach gale or severe gale force at times in the west/northwest, and draw in milder air than of late; especially by night. The unsettled conditions are likely to persist into the following week. The heaviest rain and strongest winds most likely to affect northwestern areas whilst eastern parts are likely to see the best of the drier interludes. Temperatures will mostly be around normal or milder during spells of cloud and rain, but drier and clearer interludes between weather systems will allow an increased risk of frost and fog.

UK Outlook for Monday 8 Dec 2014 to Monday 22 Dec 2014:

There is no strong signal in weather pattern during this period. However, the most likely scenario is for a continuation of unsettled and, at times, windy weather, especially in western parts of the UK, with eastern parts seeing the best of any dry weather. Temperatures are generally expected to be around, or a little above, average for the time of year. There is a chance of some overnight and morning frost and fog in places - this will be more likely across northern areas where there is also a chance of some snow on higher ground.

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.
