    Unseasonably cold overnight. Sunny spells on Sunday, becoming cloudy later.

    This Evening and Tonight:

    A chilly and bright start, but soon feeling warmer with plenty of sunshine. However, increasing amounts of high cloud will then spread in from the southwest during the afternoon. Maximum Temperature 18C.

    Outbreaks of rain and breezy on Bank Holiday Monday, heaviest and most persistent in the south. Turning drier and brighter on Tuesday and into Wednesday. However, further rain possible later.

    UK forecast for the next 5 days

    Showers easing away leading to an unseasonably cold night.

    This Evening and Tonight:

    Showers in the north and east will fade away and become confined to windward coasts this evening. Temperatures will fall sharply under clearing skies and light winds with a grass frost likely by dawn in some rural locations.

    Sunday:

    After a cold start, largely fine for many with the best of the sunshine across northern and eastern parts. Thickening cloud brings rain to Northern Ireland and southwest Britain later.

    Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

    Wet and breezy for many on Monday, although Scotland remaining dry. Rain clearing southern parts on Tuesday with brighter conditions following and continuing into Wednesday. Rain into western areas later.

    Issued at: 1700 on Sat 23 Aug 2014

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Thursday 28 Aug 2014 to Saturday 6 Sep 2014:

    Rather unsettled across much of the UK on Thursday, Friday and into the weekend with outbreaks of rain, heavy at times, interspersed with brighter and drier interludes. It will be windy at times in the northwest. However, conditions may become drier and brighter across southern parts through Friday, into the weekend and perhaps into the start of the new week. A northwest to southeast split is the most likely scenario through the rest of the period with the wettest weather likely to be in the northwest, where it will be windy at times, whilst the best of the drier and brighter interludes will be towards the southeast and possibly becoming lengthier with time. Temperatures will be near normal, but warm at times during the sunnier periods and towards the southeast.

    UK Outlook for Sunday 7 Sep 2014 to Sunday 21 Sep 2014:

    Current signals continue to suggest a broadly changeable spell of weather. As such, most regions can expect to see spells of fine weather, with some warm sunshine at times. However, these spells will then be interspersed with more unsettled conditions bringing showery outbreaks and perhaps more prolonged spells of rain. Northern and western parts are then likely to see the most frequent bouts of unsettled weather, whilst southern and eastern parts are likely to see the most frequent and prolonged fine and dry spells. Daytime temperatures, meanwhile, are likely to be warm during the fine spells and near or below average during unsettled weather.

    Liverpool information

    Liverpool is situated in the metropolitan county of Merseyside, located in the north-west of England. As a port city with a population of 466,000 it has played an important role in the industrialisation of Britain and the north-west.

    At one point in the early 19th century, 40% of all goods transported worldwide passed through Liverpool, establishing the city as a major industrial hub. Raw materials for the goods produced in nearby Manchester were shipped into and out from Liverpool by canal - a method of transport later replaced by the Liverpool and Manchester Railway system, the first of its kind in the world.

    Liverpool was the birthplace of the Merseybeat music movement, a movement that gave rise to the biggest-selling rock n roll group in the world, The Beatles. The city continues to attract tourism based on its musical heritage to this day and as such, can boast of top-class facilities and other attractions including the Echo Arena, which continues to attract some of the world’s leading acts.

    The city is also famed for its sporting history, with the Grand National, one of the world’s most famous horse racing events, being held at nearby Aintree every spring.

    Of course, Liverpool is also famed for its footballing heritage and since the formation of the Football League in 1888, Liverpool is the only city to have hosted football matches in the top tier of the competition, with either or both of its two major sides Everton and Liverpool FC representing the city at any time. Between the two clubs, the city has won 27 domestic league titles and 5 European Cups, as well as 12 FA Cup tournaments.

    Liverpool is home to a great many art galleries and museums, with venues including Tate Liverpool and William Brown Street; a World Heritage Site that includes the World Museum and the Walker Art Gallery.

    Other attractions include The Empire Theatre, which is the largest two-tier auditorium in the UK, and Albert Dock, a retail and tourism destination which is perhaps best known as the scene of Fred Talbot’s floating weather map from daytime TV show This Morning
