Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 7 Sep 2014 to Tuesday 16 Sep 2014:

Variable, in places large, amounts of cloud and some sunny spells on Sunday. The cloud may be thick enough for the odd drizzly shower. However, cloud and outbreaks of rain, locally heavy, may affect southwestern parts at times. Into next week, still a good deal of dry and bright weather, especially towards the north and northwest, but probably becoming more unsettled across southern areas with outbreaks of rain developing, heavy at times. Light winds at first, but becoming breezy from the southwest. Temperatures generally near or a little above average. Into the latter part of next week and beyond, the most likely scenario is for the unsettled conditions to migrate towards the northwest of the UK, with the best of the drier and warmer conditions towards the southeast.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 17 Sep 2014 to Wednesday 1 Oct 2014:

During mid to late September most regions can expect to see periods of fine weather, with some warm sunshine at times. However, these fine periods may well be interspersed with occasional spells of cloudier, more unsettled conditions bringing showers or longer spells of rain. Northern and western parts are probably most likely to see the more frequent bouts of unsettled weather, whilst southern and eastern parts should see the better fine and dry spells. Daytime temperatures are likely to be above average during fine weather leaving conditions feeling pleasantly warm. Nights, however, may well be on the chilly side. During any unsettled weather daytime temperatures are more likely to be near or below average leaving conditions feeling cool.

Aberdeen information

Known poetically as the Silver City due to its granite buildings, Aberdeen is Scotland’s third most heavily-populated city and one that revels in incredible architecture, horticulture and an artistic temperament.

Prehistoric evidence of settlements around Aberdeen’s nearby rivers, the Dee and the Don, demonstrate that people have lived in and around Aberdeen for thousands of years, with the city notably transforming when it was given its Royal Burgh status, around 1153. The architecture of Aberdeen is a huge attraction for history fans, and gave the city a variety of nicknames including the Silver City and the Granite City. The latter also lends the name to the roller derby league, the Granite City Roller Girls, who join a host of other popular sports teams in this adventurous city — the most famous of which being Aberdeen FC. Previously managed by Alex Ferguson, the Dons from Pittodrie are one of the most decorated clubs in Scottish football.

Many of the buildings constructed during the Victorian era use granite, an incredibly hard-wearing stone that, unlike sandstone structures in other cities, doesn’t erode. This ensures that many of the iconic buildings of Aberdeen look almost brand new, despite being constructed several hundred years ago! Key figures in the city’s history abound in the form of public statues, including Robert Burns and Robert the Bruce, while the Central Library, the Music Hall and several other buildings along Union Street will be of interest to architecture enthusiasts.

As well as urban spaces, Aberdeen boasts some of the most beautiful parks and gardens in the UK — officially! The city has won the large city category of the Royal Horticultural Society’s Britain in Bloom competition every year since 1968, and the prestigious ‘Best City’ award an incredible ten times. With around 45 parks and green spaces to choose from, there’s plenty to feast your eyes on when enjoying the surprisingly mild climate of Aberdeen, including Duthie Park’s rose hill and the natural amphitheatre of Union Terrace Gardens.

It’s to be expected from a city as historically interesting as Aberdeen that the place is rich in culture and arts, including the very popular Aberdeen International Youth Festival and the Aberdeen Student Show. The latter, a humorous ‘revue’-style show, has been performed annually since 1921 and showcases the Doric dialect and humour to great effect. Alongside regular events and festivals in film, science, art and theatre, Aberdeen has much to rival its cousin, Edinburgh.
