    Settled conditions will persist, bringing variable cloud and sunny spells.

    This Evening and Tonight:

    A largely dry evening and night with light winds. However, further areas of low cloud will form overnight with mist or fog patches developing in places, mainly across hills. The cloud may be thick enough for the odd drizzly shower.


    Early mist and fog patches will lift and break during the morning. Otherwise, a mainly fine and dry day with variable amounts of cloud and some warm sunny spells.

    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.

    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.
