    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Saturday 6 Sep 2014 to Monday 15 Sep 2014:

    Many places dry through the weekend, with variable, but often large amounts of cloud and some bright or sunny spells, but there is an increasing risk of rain or showers spreading across southern and southwestern areas, possibly extending to central areas by the end of Sunday. Into next week, still a good deal of dry weather, especially towards the north, but probably becoming more unsettled from the southwest, with heavy rain possible 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 Tuesday 16 Sep 2014 to Tuesday 30 Sep 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.

    Nottingham information

    In the East Midlands of England sits the city of Nottingham, a settlement on the river Trent which currently has a population of about 306,000.

    Originally famed for its occupation by legendary outlaw Robin Hood, the city of Nottingham boomed during the Industrial Revolution when it became famous around the world for its production of lace and other textiles.

    After the Second World War, Nottingham’s trademark textile production fell out of favour when the materials were obtained more favourably from Asia and the Far East and today, the city is now home to some of the most renowned companies across many different sectors.

    The Nottingham postcode also includes Mansfield to the west, as well as Grantham to the south-east. The greater Nottingham area is estimated to have about 800,000 inhabitants.

    In the city itself there are a great many attractions themed around the legend of Robin Hood and many visitors continue to visit Sherwood Forest and Nottingham Castle in their droves, where they can experience first-hand what life outside the law in the 15th century was like. Every summer the forest hosts the Robin Hood Festival, which is a week-long celebration of the story complete with authentic medieval costumes, re-enactments and live performance of music from the Middle Ages.

    As well as a celebration of the past, Nottingham hosts a tribute to the future with its annual GameCity convention. Held at the end of October, it brings together the general public of gaming fans with the writers, designers and developers of some of the best-loved video games in the world, previewing new titles and interviewing gaming talent from all over the world.

    Nottingham also attracts a huge following to its sports facilities. Two football teams, Notts County and Nottingham Forest, are divided only by the river Trent but they have contributed to some of the nation’s greatest sporting memories in their own way.

    Trent Bridge is a regular host of England international cricket matches and Nottingham is also the home of the National Ice Centre stands — perhaps not surprising given that was also the home of Torvill and Dean.
