Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 23 Sep 2014 to Thursday 2 Oct 2014:

At first it should be dry for most with some good sunny spells. Northwestern areas though are likely to be cloudier with some rain or drizzle. It will also be breezy here with the risk of gales in the far northwest. As we go through the week the more unsettled conditions look set to spread across many northern and western parts, with some heavy spells of rain. Southern, and southeastern areas in particularly, are probably going to hold onto the drier and brighter weather with some sunny periods, and perhaps a few showers. Temperatures will be around normal, if not warm in the south and east. The setup looks to remain similar heading into the following week; unsettled in the north and west, some rain in the south and east.

UK Outlook for Friday 3 Oct 2014 to Friday 17 Oct 2014:

The UK is likely to see changeable conditions through this period, with a mixture of fine and settled weather, interspersed with occasional unsettled spells. The drier and brighter conditions are expected to be most prolonged across the south and east. 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 in the way of outbreaks of rain. Daytime temperatures here are set to be below or close to average.

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
