    UK Outlook for Wednesday 3 Sep 2014 to Friday 12 Sep 2014:

    Dry for many on Wednesday and Thursday with variable cloud amounts and warm sunny spells once early morning low cloud and mist patches clear. However, northwestern Scotland may see some patchy drizzle at times. Temperatures generally above average, particularly across central and southern parts where it could be very warm. The settled conditions should persist into Friday. However, through the weekend, there is likely to be an increasing risk of rain or showers spreading from the west. Rather changeable conditions are most likely into the following week, with northern and western areas most prone to see some rain at times, whilst southeastern areas will see the best of the drier and bright weather, especially later in the period. Temperatures near normal in the north to rather warm in the south.

    UK Outlook for Saturday 13 Sep 2014 to Saturday 27 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.

    Norwich information

    Norwich is 117 miles north east of London, about 20 miles inland of the North Sea coast. It is bisected by the River Wensum and bordered at its southern reaches by the River Yare.

    The area has been settled since ancient times. The local pre Roman centre of population was believed to be at Caister St Edmunds, some 4 miles south of the current city centre. There is a lot of evidence of local Roman occupation and development. This area was the centre of the revolt led by Boudica around 60 AD.

    Evidence indicates that Norwich was developed after the Romans abandoned Caister in about 450 AD. At the time of the Norman invasion the city was one of the largest in England and the Domesday Book (1086), records its size at the time to include 25 churches and a population of up to 10,000 souls. By 1096 the building of the cathedral started using Caen stone from Normandy which required the cutting of a canal from the river.

    Following a riot in the city in 1274, Norwich has the distinction of being the only English city to be excommunicated by the Pope.

    The area has been and still is important agriculturally and was for many years a key exporter of wool and wool products. This trade generated local wealth and paid for the construction of many churches. Norwich has more medieval churches than any other western European city north of the Alps.

    The first provincial newspaper in Britain was established in Norwich in 1701, the Norwich Post.

    The first rail connection to London was opened in 1845, until which it was quicker to travel to Amsterdam by boat than to get to London
