    UK forecast for the next 5 days

    Becoming clear and dry for many. Rain in northwest later.

    Heavy showers in the far southeast will slowly clear away overnight, then leaving most places dry with long clear periods. Northwestern areas will become increasingly cloudy though, with occasional rain and drizzle.

    Tuesday:

    Increasingly breezy with scattered showers in northwestern parts. Elsewhere, mostly dry and bright, but turning cloudier with patchy light rain spreading southeast. Rather warm, especially in the southeast.

    Showers in the north and west Wednesday and Thursday spreading into many other areas Friday. Warm in the south and east, cooler elsewhere, especially in the north Wednesday when breezy.

    Issued at: 1700 on Mon 28 Jul 2014

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Saturday 2 Aug 2014 to Monday 11 Aug 2014:

    Changeable this weekend with showers and or more prolonged periods of rain affecting most areas. On Saturday, rain, occasionally heavy and perhaps thundery, will clear away eastwards, with brighter conditions but also scattered showers then following. Further showers on Sunday with a chance of more persistent rain reaching some western areas later. The unsettled theme then continues into next week, conditions perhaps turning breezier then, with a risk of gales in some exposed western parts. The unsettled theme is likely to continue until the end of the period, although there may be more in the way of drier and brighter conditions developing across the south and east later. Temperatures should be generally near normal for the time of year, although perhaps on the warm side towards the south and east.

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 12 Aug 2014 to Tuesday 26 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.

    York information

    York is located in the North East of England and is home to around 200,000 people. Its rich and interesting history makes it a popular tourist destination.

    York was an important site for both the Romans and the Anglo-Saxons during their occupation of England and, despite damage done after the Norman invasion of 1066, the city continued to prosper. Many of the features of the medieval city remain today. The city walls (known as ‘bars’) which surrounded the city are still standing, as are the ‘Shambles’ - a run of butcher shops which still retain some original features. As the seat of an archbishop and an administration centre for the surrounding county of Yorkshire, the city has been the backdrop to many major political events, playing a key role in both the War of the Roses and the English Civil War. York is reportedly the most haunted city in Europe, and there are plenty of opportunities to go ghost-hunting across the city.

    During the 19th and 20th Century George Hudson helped develop the city’s railway network and by 1900 the railway industry was one of the major industries of the area. The other was confectionary; both Rowntree’s and Terry’s of York were founded in the city. Nowadays the city relies mainly on the service industry.

    The city is bordered by the Pennines, the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Wolds, and is based at the convergence of the rivers Ouse and Foss. Within the city there are 34 conservation areas, 2084 listed buildings and 22 scheduled ancient monuments. The most prominent monument in the city is York Minster, an impressive gothic cathedral. York Racecourse also draws thousands of visitors to the city throughout the summer, with the course regarded as one of the finest in flat racing.

    Every September, the city plays host to one of the UK’s biggest food festivals. The York Food and Drink Festival, which aims to celebrate the local food of Yorkshire, takes over the city centre for 10 days every year and brings over 440,000 visitors to the city.

    York is the birthplace of many famous and prestigious individuals, including Constantine the Great, Emperor of Rome during the early fourth Century; King Richard III and writer W H Auden. York was also the home of the infamous Guy Fawkes, one of the conspirators of the Gunpowder Plot of 1605 and the execution site of highwayman Dick Turpin.
