UK forecast for the next 5 days

A chilly start, then a fine and dry day.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 25 Sep 2014 to Saturday 4 Oct 2014:

Southern parts of the UK will be dry at first with sunny spells but it will be cloudier in the north and west with rain at times. The rain will spread southwards, gradually weakening, although some southern and southeastern areas will probably remain dry. Brighter, showery weather may follow to the northwest. It will be quite windy, with gales in the far north, and temperatures close to normal. Into the weekend the most likely scenario is for northwestern parts of the UK to see the most unsettled conditions with strong winds and outbreaks of rain. Further south and east there should be lengthier drier periods interspersed with occasional rain. It may become warm again here. This pattern of weather is expected to stay similar into the following week.

UK Outlook for Sunday 5 Oct 2014 to Sunday 19 Oct 2014:

The north-south split in the weather is more likely than not to continue for most of the period. The best of the drier and brighter conditions are expected to be across the south and east of the UK. Here, daytime temperatures are likely to be around, and often above average with some warm sunshine. However, it could turn quite chilly during the nights, with a risk of fog patches in places. Northern and western parts are likely to see more frequent outbreaks of rain and strong winds, with gales in the far north. Daytime temperatures here are set 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.
