    UK forecast for the next 5 days

    Largely fine and very warm. Misty along some eastern coasts.

    This Evening and Tonight:

    Any heavy, thundery showers, mainly in the far southwest will soon die away, leaving a dry evening with warm sunshine. Mostly clear and dry overnight, although mist and low cloud will encroach inland from northeastern coasts to central areas.

    Friday:

    A generally fine, warm and dry day for most areas, but isolated heavy showers are possible, mainly in the southeast. Low cloud will again affect northeastern parts, persisting along coasts.

    Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

    Cloudier with showery rain affecting the north and west on Saturday. Mostly fine and dry further south. Showery rain moving southeastwards Sunday and Monday, then brighter conditions following. Less warm.

    Issued at: 1700 on Thu 24 Jul 2014

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 29 Jul 2014 to Thursday 7 Aug 2014:

    The largely fine and dry weather is expected to continue across most parts of the UK initially, although in the north an area of weakening and fragmenting rain is expected to move slowly southeastwards through Tuesday. It will remain warm or very warm for many, although sea breezes should keep some coastal parts a little fresher. During next week, lengthy periods of fine, dry and warm weather are likely, mainly over southern and southwestern areas, but occasional rain and brisk winds often affecting 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 towards the south.

    UK Outlook for Friday 8 Aug 2014 to Friday 22 Aug 2014:

    The generally unsettled conditions look set to continue through the start of this period with more in the way of cloud and sporadic outbreaks of rain in the north, while the best of the drier, brighter spells will be in the south and east. Temperatures should remain above average for southeastern parts initially, but returning to near normal later. A return to more settled conditions in the south is looking likely towards the end of the period.

    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.
