Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 3 Aug 2014 to Tuesday 12 Aug 2014:

Remaining changeable, with showers or longer spells of rain likely across the northwest of the UK to start Sunday. Just a few showers possible elsewhere, locally heavy. On Monday, rain probably returning from the west, heavy at times in the west, but may not reach some eastern areas during the day. The unsettled theme is likely to continue until the end of the period, although there may be more in the way of drier and brighter conditions developing across the south and east later. Temperatures generally near normal, but often warm towards the south and east. Winds generally light to moderate for most, but perhaps locally strong in the northwest, then a risk of gales in some exposed western parts into the middle of next week.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 13 Aug 2014 to Wednesday 27 Aug 2014:

With no particularly strong signals regarding weather patterns over the UK during the latter part of August, conditions are more likely than not to be close to climatology. As such most regions can expect to see periods of fine weather with some sunshine interspersed by occasional spells of more changeable conditions with showers or rain. Northern parts are perhaps most likely to see the most frequent bouts of unsettled weather leaving southern parts with the most prolonged fine spells. Daytime temperatures are then likely to often be above average during fine spells.

Bournemouth weather

Bournemouth is a coastal town in the south west of England, situated in the county of Dorset. Located between Poole and Christchurch, the town is accessible via road on the A338 - also known as the Wessex Way.

Founded in 1810, Bournemouth grew with the introduction of the railway, which saw a huge surge in visitors numbers to the seaside town. As the city grew, so did the attractions; starting with a library and museum and increasing to art galleries, cinemas and other attractions.

Throughout history, Bournemouth has been known as a seaside resort. Boasting seven miles of award winning beaches, the bay of Bournemouth takes its shelter from the surrounding cliffs to create its own microclimate - ideal for holidaymakers. The beach offers a variety of amusements from a stroll along the pier through to water sports. It is even host to the annual Bournemouth air festival, which is spread over four days of flying displays, shopping and evening entertainment.

There are many attractions in the surrounding area to explore including the New Forrest, a myriad of quaint coastal towns, rugged walks and breathtakingly beautiful coastal scenes.

Average winter temperatures in Bournemouth can vary from 1.2 °C at their lowest to as mild as 8.7 °C. The coldest month is usually February, whilst December sees the warmest temperatures over winter. It also has more days of air frost on average than any other month. Bournemouth winter temperatures tend to be 1 to 2 °C warmer when compared to the UK average. On average, rainfall accumulation is lower in January compared to December, and typically February has even less. December has the second highest rainfall accumulation of any month.

From March to May sunshine hours increase significantly above the UK average. Likewise temperatures increase from 11 °C to 17 °C. Compared to other months from the start of spring to the end of summer, March has a relatively high accumulation of rainfall on average. This figure drops for April, and then again for May. Similarly, March has more 'rain days' than any month until October.

July is usually the hottest month in Bournemouth where average summer temperatures in reach 22.1 °C. The average maximum temperature for August is almost the same. July is also the sunniest month of the year with an average of 232 sunshine hours. August has fewer days of rainfall more than 1mm than any other month, although July has the least rainfall accumulation.

September in Bournemouth can be as mild as June with a maximum daytime average of 19.3 °C. It's rare but not unknown for an air frost to occur as early as September in Bournemouth; though the long term average is around one day every ten years. Autumn months see the most rainfall in Bournemouth as collectively the average accumulation is around 267 mm.
