    UK Outlook for Sunday 27 Jul 2014 to Tuesday 5 Aug 2014:

    Largely fine and dry weather is expected across southern parts of the UK initially, although isolated showers could affect the southeast, while in the north a band of showery rain may edge southwards through Sunday. It will remain warm or very warm for many, and perhaps locally hot in places, although sea breezes should keep some coastal parts a little fresher. During next week, lengthy periods of fine, dry and warm weather are likely. Occasional rain and brisk winds may affect northern parts with temperatures here returning closer to average. The last part of this period should be similar, although there are indications that the more unsettled weather in the north may extend further south at times.

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 6 Aug 2014 to Wednesday 20 Aug 2014:

    The recent generally settled conditions are expected to persist into the first part of this period, with mostly fine and dry weather continuing across more southern parts. Towards the north, more in the way of cloud and sporadic outbreaks of rain are likely. Temperatures should remain above average for most, possibly turning locally hot for a time in the south. Later in the period, a change towards more unsettled conditions overall is looking likely with a higher risk of rain or showers, although there will also be some drier, brighter interludes.

    Plymouth information

    The city of Plymouth is one that has certainly earned its place in history and its role in the development of the modern Western world is not to be underestimated.

    Plymouth has always been a hub of seafaring activity, from the days of the Roman Empire and its role as a trading post to the contemporary city, home to the biggest operational navy base in Western Europe. Plymouth was also the starting point for a ship bound for the New World in 1620 containing a number of people who would later be known as the Pilgrim Fathers. They settled in what is now known as America and their voyage is commemorated with the Mayflower Steps in Plymouth.

    Plymouth suffered from widespread destruction during the Second World War, with the entire city centre being rebuilt in the post-war years. This suffering during the war, along with Plymouth’s key role in previous naval attacks, means that the city has around twenty war memorials remembering those who had passed away during the battles and significant victories of the town.

    Thanks to the long history of the city, the city is home to a number of historic landmarks, such as the Royal Citadel (built in 1666). This includes the original, earliest port of Plymouth, then called Sutton, which has an astonishing 100 listed buildings. For modern tastes, the National Marine Aquarium and Plymouth Hoe are excellent places to visit and even those are imbued with a sense of history - it’s thought that Plymouth Hoe is where Sir Francis Drake played his infamous game of bowls before embarking on his voyage to defeat the Spanish Armada.

    Plymouth’s role as a bustling seaport has meant that a tradition of theatre, entertainment and enjoyment has grown up around Union Street, which plays host to pubs, clubs and bars until the very early hours. Combined with the ninth largest university population in the UK, Plymouth certainly has a vibrant nightlife! Sports and arts aren’t forgotten, either, with the council-run Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery and a host of watersports such as the historic Port of Plymouth Regatta.
