Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 21 Sep 2014 to Tuesday 30 Sep 2014:

Sunday should be mostly fine with sunny spells, although still with the risk of showers in the south, while thickening cloud in the far northwest may bring some light rain later. It is then likely to remain largely settled into early next week, especially in the south, but a little cooler than preceding days, whilst outbreaks of rain alternate with sunshine further north. Later in the week, 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. 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 Wednesday 1 Oct 2014 to Wednesday 15 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.

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. York is reportedly the most haunted city in Europe, and there are plenty of opportunities to go ghost-hunting across the city.

During the 19th and 20th Century George Hudson helped develop the city’s railway network and by 1900 the railway industry was one of the major industries of the area. The other was confectionary; both Rowntree’s and Terry’s of York were founded in the city. Nowadays the city relies mainly on the service industry.

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.

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.

York is the birthplace of many famous and prestigious individuals, including Constantine the Great, Emperor of Rome during the early fourth Century; King Richard III and writer W H Auden. York was also the home of the infamous Guy Fawkes, one of the conspirators of the Gunpowder Plot of 1605 and the execution site of highwayman Dick Turpin.
