Once again mist and low cloud will drift inland from the North Sea with drizzle and fog patches affecting the area after midnight. Minimum Temperature 14C.

Issued at: 0500 on Tue 16 Sep 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Mostly dry and bright but a few showers around.

Today:

Mostly dry with some sunshine after a dull, misty start. However isolated showers are possible across southern Britain, some heavy, and perhaps northwestern areas too. Heavy rain will become confined to the Northern Isles, where it will be breezy.

Tonight:

Extensive low cloud, mist and hill fog will affect many central and eastern parts of the UK, with drizzle in places. Dry with clear spells in the west.

Wednesday:

Many eastern parts will stay cloudy with patchy drizzle. Mostly dry elsewhere with warm sunny spells as cloud breaks up but isolated showers are possible in the far southwest later.

Issued at: 0500 on Tue 16 Sep 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 20 Sep 2014 to Monday 29 Sep 2014:

It is likely to remain largely dry and settled for most at first, but it may turn more unsettled from the northwest later in this period. The weekend should be fine for many with variable cloud and some sunny spells, although there is a risk of the odd heavy shower in the south on Saturday. It is likely to be warm too, although perhaps not quite as warm as on previous days. The fine weather should persist next week, feeling warm by day in sunny spells, but some cool nights are also likely. It may turn windy and more changeable in the north and west towards the end of that week, with an increasing risk of showers or spells of rain, but the south and east should remain mostly fine.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 30 Sep 2014 to Tuesday 14 Oct 2014:

The end of September and the first half of October is likely to see more changeable conditions across the UK, with a mixture of fine and settled weather, interspersed with occasional unsettled spells. The drier and brighter conditions, with some warm sunshine, is then expected to be most prolonged across the south and east, whilst outbreaks of rain would then be most frequent across the north and west. During the more settled conditions daytime temperatures are then likely to be around and often above average, although chilly overnight with a risk of fog patches in places. However during any unsettled spells daytime temperatures are then likely to be below or close to average.

Norwich weather

On the banks of the river Wensum in the East of England sits the city of Norwich, with an urban area population of over 190,000.

In the Middle Ages, the town and its surrounding areas profited from the sale of wool, making Norwich one of the most affluent towns in the country. A great many churches remain standing there to this day, testament to the wealth of the time. Centuries later, the cloth trade brought more financial success to the region, allowing Norwich to develop and grow even more into one of the most cultured areas in the country. In light of its history as a hub of creativity, Norwich was also recently named as the first English City of Literature thanks to its rich cultural history and regular celebrations of its literary past - alumni of the UEA's famous creative writing courses include Ian McEwan and Kazuo Ishiguro.

The city's primary sporting attraction is Carrow Road, home of Norwich City Football Club and the Canaries, as they are known, share a strong rivalry with their East Anglian neighbours, Ipswich.

Winter temperatures in Norwich are around half a degree warmer than the UK average. February is the coldest month with daytime minimums around 1.3 °C. There are notably more days of air frost in February than any other month and the figure halves from February to March. It's also the driest time of year with only 41.7 mm of rainfall accumulation. Winter isn't the wettest time of year for Norwich, although there are more days of rainfall greater than 1 mm than any other season.

Average daytime maxima in Norwich increase from 10 °C in March to nearly 16 °C by May. This is around a degree warmer than the UK average. It's rare, although not unheard of for an air frost to develop in May. May is the sunniest month of the year with an average of 212 sunshine hours. Average sunshine hours are actually lower in June. Spring in Norwich is the driest time of the year with rainfall accumulation around 140 mm - though there are fewer 'rain days' in summer.

August is the hottest time of the year in Norwich with an average high of 21.4 °C. July's average maximum is virtually the same and it is also the sunniest month in Norwich, with 203.5 sunshine hours on average. Rainfall accumulation throughout the summer months totals 181.6 mm. This is below the UK average and makes summer the second wettest season.

Temperatures fall in autumn from 18.6 °C in September to 10.4 °C by November. Rainfall accumulation in Norwich is highest during autumn. October and November have the joint highest rainfall totals of any month at 68.2 mm, although this is still below the national average. Air frost starts to develop in October and the number of air frost days increases significantly by November.
