Regional forecast for South West England

Strong winds and showers slowly easing. Somewhat quieter tomorrow.

This Evening and Tonight:

Windy at first, with a risk of gales, especially over higher ground and exposed coasts. Showers will soon die away and winds will ease, and with clear spells developing, it will turn cold enough for a touch of grass frost. Minimum Temperature 3C.

Wednesday:

After a mainly dry, bright, but chilly start, cloud will thicken from the west, although it should remain dry. Much lighter winds than on Tuesday, and feeling less cold. Maximum Temperature 15C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Cloudy and damp on Thursday. More persistent rain on Friday, with brighter, windier conditions and a few showers following for Saturday. Mild at first, but turning fresher later.

Issued at: 1700 on Tue 21 Oct 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Gales and showers slowly easing. Rain returning to the northwest.

This Evening and Tonight:

Gales will steadily ease, although it will remain breezy in many areas. A few showers will linger on into the early hours, but most places will become dry. Turning chilly in sheltered spots, with a touch of grass frost.

Wednesday:

A dry, bright start for many southern and eastern areas, though turning cloudier through the day. Rain and freshening winds will return to Northern Ireland, Scotland and northern England.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

A band of rain will push southeast across all parts, clearing southeast England early on Saturday. Generally quite windy, with a risk of gales and squally showers in the northwest.

Issued at: 1700 on Tue 21 Oct 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 26 Oct 2014 to Tuesday 4 Nov 2014:

Showery and very windy across northern areas on Sunday and Monday, with a risk of severe gales for a time. Somewhat less windy further to the south, though with increasing amounts of cloud. Into the midweek period, a north-south split looks most probable, with windy and often unsettled conditions continuing in the north and somewhat quieter, drier weather in the south. Temperatures will generally be near normal, although feeling quite cold in the strong winds. Towards the end of October and into early November, the broad north-south split looks set to continue, with northern areas remaining changeable and at times unsettled. Further south, there are hints that pressure may start to rise, increasing the potential for more prolonged drier periods, but with a greater risk of overnight frost and fog.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 5 Nov 2014 to Wednesday 19 Nov 2014:

The main signal is for a continuation of a north-south split during the first half of November. During this period, the generally westerly flow is likely to bring spells of wet and windy weather, interspersed with drier intervals. These should mostly affect northern and some western areas, but perhaps reaching other areas as well at times. However southern and some eastern areas will probably see more in the way of the drier and settled conditions increasing the likelihood of seeing some sunshine, but also the risk of frost, mist and fog overnight, the latter of which could be slow to clear. Daytime temperatures are likely to be near or a little above normal, although feeling cooler during any wet and windy spells.

Bournemouth information

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 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 heritage attractions in and around Bournemouth, including many churches and cathedrals, Corfe Castle and the Beaulieu Motor Museum. The motor museum offers something for all the family and is home to over 250 vehicles that tell the story of the history of motoring. Whilst there, you can also visit Palace House, the stately home of the Mantagu family since 1538, and Beaulieu Abbey where you can learn more about monastic life. There is also a secret army exhibition which tells the story of the area during the war and its role in training secret agents.

Bournemouth also has a wide arts and culture offering. All year round there are a variety of classical concerts, visual arts, dance and performance and live music on offer to locals and visitors alike. Pavilion Dance offers world class contemporary dance shows and is a recognised centre of national excellence in dance. The town also hosts its own symphony orchestra which has performed across the world.

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.
