Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 10 Jul 2015 to Sunday 19 Jul 2015:

Fine, dry and warm across many parts of the UK on Friday, although occasional rain will affect the far northwest. The fine, dry and warm weather could hang on in the far southeast of the country until the end of next weekend, but otherwise turning more unsettled with rain, perhaps heavy and thundery, spreading slowly and erratically east. This then heralds a change to a more unsettled interlude next week, with bands of rain and showers affecting most parts at times. However, the heaviest and more frequent spells of rain will tend to be in the northwest, with southern and eastern parts of the UK still having some spells of dry, bright and warm weather.

UK Outlook for Monday 20 Jul 2015 to Monday 3 Aug 2015:

For the rest of July and into the early part of August the pattern of warm, dry spells interspersed with relatively short-lived more unsettled spells of weather, which has dominated so far this summer, is most likely to continue. Frequent spells of rain and showers are most probable in the north and west, with a good deal of fine, dry weather likely further south and east. Overall temperatures are likely to be on the warm side of average and there could be occasional spells of hot weather, especially in the south and east. Generally probably drier than average for many parts of the UK, but there is still a risk of some heavy showers or thunderstorms, especially in the warmer spells of weather.

Cambridge information

Cambridge is a city that is renowned for its world famous university. The University of Cambridge, founded in 1209, is famed for not only being the second oldest university in England but also for having more Nobel Prize winners amongst it's alumni than any other university in history. To date, 61 former graduates have won the Nobel Prize, along with eight Fields Medals and two Abel Prizes.

But the city is about more than just education. Cambridge dates back to before the Roman Empire, where there is evidence of a settlement in the area from a 3,500 year old farmstead found in the ground of Fitzwilliam College. The current population of the city is around 130,000, with roughly 22,000 students.

In Cambridge, minimum average daytime temperatures range from 1.9 °C to 1.3 °C during the winter months. This is slightly above the UK average. February is the coldest month and usually has more air frost days than any other - although December is a close second. It's also the driest individual month of the year. Rainfall accumulation in Cambridge is at its second lowest during winter. Despite this, January has the most days of rainfall greater than 1 mm.

Average maximum daytime temperatures in Cambridge can increase from 10.6 °C in March to approaching 17 °C by May. These values are around 2 degrees above the UK average. Days of air frost halve from March to April and around four days every ten years of air frost in May. Spring is the driest time in Cambridge, with rainfall accumulation significantly below the UK average.

The hottest month of the year in Cambridge is July, when temperatures typically reach 23 °C. Rainfall is higher than spring, although still less than both autumn and the UK average for summer. Over the course of summer, the most rainfall usually occurs in June when rainfall accumulation is around 56 mm.

Cambridge is one of the driest locations in the United Kingdom. Autumn sees the most rain but it's still notably lower than many other places. For October, the wettest month, rainfall accumulation is 59 mm. The UK average for October is double this figure. Temperatures generally decrease from highs of 19 °C in September to maxima of 10 °C by November. On average there is at least 1 day every year of air frost in October, but this more than quadruples in November.
