UK Outlook for Tuesday 29 Jul 2014 to Thursday 7 Aug 2014:

The largely fine and dry weather is expected to continue across most parts of the UK initially, although in the north an area of weakening and fragmenting rain is expected to move slowly southeastwards through Tuesday.

The last part of this period should be similar, although there are indications that the more unsettled weather in the north may extend further towards the south.

The generally unsettled conditions look set to continue through the start of this period with more in the way of cloud and sporadic outbreaks of rain in the north, while the best of the drier, brighter spells will be in the south and east. Temperatures should remain above average for southeastern parts initially, but returning to near normal later. A return to more settled conditions in the south is looking likely towards the end of the period.

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
