    Dry, with sunny spells this evening and clear periods overnight. As the wind becomes very light, and variable in direction, a few mist patches may form. Minimum Temperature 12C.

    Any early mist will quickly clear, leaving long sunny periods. Clouding over later, but remaining dry and bright, while becoming warm or very warm. Maximum Temperature 26C.

    UK forecast for the next 5 days

    Scattered heavy showers in south. Mostly dry and bright elsewhere.

    Today:

    Showers, some heavy, in Wales and southwest England this morning, but becoming largely fine this afternoon. Risk of heavy, slow-moving and possibly thundery showers in southeastern areas at times. Elsewhere, mostly dry with sunny spells. Feeling warm in the sunshine.

    Tonight:

    Heavy showers in the far southeast slowly clearing away overnight, then most places dry with long clear periods. Becoming cloudy across northwestern areas with occasional rain and drizzle.

    Tuesday:

    Breezy with a few showers in northwestern areas. Cloudier skies with a little patchy rain spreading southeast after a sunny start elsewhere. Warm, locally very warm in southeast England.

    Issued at: 0500 on Mon 28 Jul 2014

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Friday 1 Aug 2014 to Sunday 10 Aug 2014:

    Southern and eastern parts of the UK are likely to start largely dry and fine, although outbreaks of rain or showers in the west will spread to most parts through Friday. Over the weekend and into the following week, it is likely to remain unsettled across the UK with further outbreaks of showers and more prolonged rain affecting all areas at times. Rain is likely to turn occasionally heavy, particularly towards the middle of the week. Temperatures should be around normal for the time of year, and perhaps on the warm side in the south. There are indications that drier, sunnier periods may become more prevalent in southern, eastern and central areas later in the period as bouts of rain are likely to become more confined to the northwest.

    UK Outlook for Monday 11 Aug 2014 to Monday 25 Aug 2014:

    With no particularly strong signals regarding weather patterns over the UK during mid-August, conditions are more likely than not to be close to climatology. As such most regions can expect to see periods of fine weather with some sunshine interspersed by occasional spells of more changeable conditions with showers or rain. Northern parts are perhaps most likely to see the most frequent bouts of unsettled weather leaving southern parts with the most prolonged fine spells. Daytime temperatures are then likely to often be above average during fine spells.

    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.
