UK forecast for the next 5 days

Dry and fine for most, but rain in far northwest.

The cloud and rain will continue to push southeastwards overnight, possibly just about reaching northern parts of northern England by dawn. Elsewhere, dry, clear and cold once again.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 27 Sep 2014 to Monday 6 Oct 2014:

Fairly cloudy at first, though some sunny intervals developing for central, southern and eastern parts of the UK. Outbreaks of rain are expected for northern and western areas, more persistent for parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland, although clearer, showery weather should follow for a time. It will be quite windy here too. Temperatures generally near or a little above normal. Into the following week, the north and west are likely to remain the windiest and most unsettled parts of the UK, with the best of the weather further south and east. However, a little rain is to be expected here at times. Temperatures should be a little above normal for most. This general northwest-southeast split in the weather is then likely to continue into the start of October.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 7 Oct 2014 to Tuesday 21 Oct 2014:

The broadly northwest-southeast split in weather conditions expected to become established for late September and early October is then showing signs of persisting into mid-October. This pattern would leave southern, central and eastern parts tending to see the best of the weather with conditions often fine and dry. Occasional bouts of rain should still be expected, and mist and fog patches may be a problem during morning rush hours but under fine weather it should feel pleasant. Further northwest, conditions are likely to be more unsettled with more frequent outbreaks of rain, perhaps accompanied by strong winds, temperatures here then often closer to average or perhaps even just below at times.

Newport information

Newport is a city in south east Wales 138 miles west of London and 12 miles east of Cardiff, located astride the River Usk and just inland from the Bristol Channel.

The city is largely low-lying, with low hills and in the areas of the south and east containing an area of reclaimed marshland.

Rich local archaeological evidence suggests the area has been settled since the Stone Age. The Celtic tribe, the Silures, occupied the area before the Roman Invasion and built hillforts overlooking the River Usk.

Newport itself developed from the early Roman settlement of Caerleon, which is a short distance upstream from the current city centre and which was built to defend the river crossing.

Newport was fortified by the Normans between 1066 and 1086 and gained its first charter in 1314. It was first recorded as a settlement as “Novo Burgus” (or new town) in 1126.

It has always been a trading port and was the centre for the export of Welsh Coal from the eastern valleys, especially after the opening of the Monmouthshire Canal in 1800, until the 1850s when Cardiff eclipsed it for this trade.

Until the end of the 20th century the city was a centre for iron and steel production, which is now much reduced in capacity.
