Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 30 Oct 2014 to Saturday 8 Nov 2014:

Becoming generally cloudy across the UK, but staying dry with bright spells across southern and eastern parts on Thursday. Northern and western parts will become wetter with outbreaks of rain. The rain will likely become heavier and more persistent later that day. Winds also increase, becoming strong in the west, and gales may develop across the far northwest. A north-south split then looks most likely to dominate. The most wetter, windier conditions likely in the north and northwest; with gales, perhaps even severe gales in the far northwest, next weekend. The best of the drier weather likely in the south and southeast; although there is likely to be some rain here at times. Temperatures generally near normal, but perhaps falling slightly below average later with snow on Scottish mountains possible.

UK Outlook for Sunday 9 Nov 2014 to Sunday 23 Nov 2014:

The main signal is for a continuation of a north-south split during the second week of November. During this period, the generally westerly flow is likely to bring spells of wet and windy weather, mostly affecting northern and some western areas. However, southern and some eastern areas will probably see more in the way of drier and settled conditions increasing the likelihood of some sunshine, but also the risk of frost, mist and fog overnight, the latter of which could be slow to clear. After this it looks set to turn more changeable across the south and east. Daytime temperatures will probably be near or a little above normal, although feeling cooler during any wet and windy spells.

Poole information

Poole is a large coastal town on the south coast of England, 112 miles south west of London. It is built north of its natural harbour, the largest in Europe and second largest in the world.

Wytch farm, on the south western shore of the harbour is home to Britain’s largest onshore oil field, which extends East and South for about 7 miles.

The geological deposits that underlie Poole are mainly clays. The Rivers Frome and Piddle carved out a wide estuary through the clays at the mouth of which, sand deposited to form spits. The spits formed an enclosing barrier and created what is now the harbour.

The harbour holds eight islands, the largest being Brownsea; where the very first camp of the Boy Scout Movement took place in 1907. The whole of the island is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest and it is owned by the National Trust.

People have lived in the area since at least the stone age and a dredging operation in the harbour revealed the “Poole Longboat” a 2,000-year-old monoxylon (a boat carved from a single piece of wood) which is now a valued museum exhibit.

The earliest recorded use of the name “Poole” was in the 12th century when the town began to grow as port. It was subject to two large-scale Viking invasions: in 876, Guthrum used Poole as way to get to Wareham, at the time a strong Saxon settlement and in 1015, Canute, began his journey to the throne of England from Poole Harbour, using it once again as the gateway into Wessex.

The port grew until the 19th century when the newer larger ships could no longer easily use the shallow harbour, which is now more a key element for the local tourism industry.

During the Second World War, Poole harbour was the third largest embarkation point for the D-Day landings and the base for the US coastguard during the conflict. On D-Day, 81 landing craft containing the American 29th infantry Division and the US Army Rangers departed for the Normandy beaches
