    Largely fine and dry weather is expected across most parts of the UK initially, although there is a low risk of heavy thundery showers affecting the southeast, while in the north an area of rain is expected to move eastwards through Monday. It will remain warm or very warm for many, and perhaps locally hot in places, 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 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 extending further towards the south.

    UK Outlook for Thursday 7 Aug 2014 to Thursday 21 Aug 2014:

    The recent generally settled conditions over southern areas are expected to persist into the first part of this period. Towards the north, rather more unsettled, with more in the way of cloud and sporadic outbreaks of rain likely. Temperatures should remain above average for southeastern parts initially, but later in the period, a change towards more unsettled conditions overall is looking likely with a higher risk of rain or showers, although there will also be some drier, brighter interludes.

    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
