UK forecast for the next 5 days

Turning brighter with murky conditions becoming confined to the southeast.

Dull start for England and Wales with occasional rain and drizzle. Brighter conditions spreading from the northwest, though some southeastern parts remaining murky with perhaps the odd sharp shower. Turning breezier in the far northwest with a few showers.

Chance of further drizzle, low cloud and increasing amounts of hill fog in southeastern areas, otherwise fine with fog patches in prone rural spots. Chilly in the north and west.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 6 Sep 2014 to Monday 15 Sep 2014:

Many places dry through the weekend, with variable, but often large amounts of cloud and some bright or sunny spells, but there is an increasing risk of rain or showers spreading across southern and southwestern areas, possibly extending to central areas by the end of Sunday. Into next week, still a good deal of dry weather, especially towards the north, but probably becoming more unsettled from the southwest, with heavy rain possible at times. Light winds at first but becoming breezy from the southwest. Temperatures generally near or a little above average. Into the latter part of next week and beyond, the most likely scenario is for the unsettled conditions to migrate towards the northwest of the UK, with the best of the drier and warmer conditions towards the southeast.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 16 Sep 2014 to Tuesday 30 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 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.
