Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 27 Jul 2014 to Tuesday 5 Aug 2014:

Largely fine and dry weather is expected across southern parts of the UK initially, although isolated showers could affect the southeast, while in the north a band of showery rain may edge southwards through Sunday. It will remain warm or very warm for many, and perhaps locally hot in places, although sea breezes should keep some coastal parts a little fresher. During next week, lengthy periods of fine, dry and warm weather are likely. Occasional rain and brisk winds may affect northern parts with temperatures here returning closer to average. The last part of this period should be similar, although there are indications that the more unsettled weather in the north may extend further south at times.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 6 Aug 2014 to Wednesday 20 Aug 2014:

The recent generally settled conditions are expected to persist into the first part of this period, with mostly fine and dry weather continuing across more southern parts. Towards the north, more in the way of cloud and sporadic outbreaks of rain are likely. Temperatures should remain above average for most, possibly turning locally hot for a time in the south. Later in the period, a change towards more unsettled conditions overall is looking likely with a higher risk of rain or showers, although there will also be some drier, brighter interludes.

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
