Regional forecast for South West England

Turning cloudy with some rain overnight. Mostly fine on Wednesday.

There will be some clear spells during the first part of the night. It is then going to turn cloudier, with some patchy rain likely during the early hours. This means it will be a milder night than recently. Minimum Temperature 9C.

There will be some locally fairly heavy showers at first, but these should ease through the morning, to leave a mostly dry afternoon with some decent spells of sunshine. Maximum Temperature 19C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Rain pushing southeastwards overnight, turning mostly fine for Wednesday.

This Evening and Tonight:

Cloud and outbreaks of rain across some northwestern parts will continue to push southeastwards, reaching southern and southeastern parts towards dawn. Clear spells and scattered showers will follow, these mainly affecting western and northern coasts.

Wednesday:

The patchy rain will clear the southeast by midday. Then there should be plenty of dry weather with sunny spells and just a few well scattered showers. Breezy.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Southern and eastern parts starting dry and fine, but becoming cloudier into the weekend. Further north and west, generally cloudier, fresher and windier with some rain at times.

Issued at: 1700 on Tue 23 Sep 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 28 Sep 2014 to Tuesday 7 Oct 2014:

Much of the UK should be largely dry through the beginning of the week. It will often be rather cloudy, although there may still be some sunny spells and isolated fog patches overnight. There should be rain at times in the north/northwest and it will become breezier here, with gales possible in the far north. Temperatures will be mostly near normal or rather warm by day, but widely well above average at night. Through the rest of the period it should continue generally dry with sunny spells, but more unsettled in the west and northwest with some rain and strong winds. Daytime temperatures are likely to remain near normal or rather warm, but nights should turn cooler with an increasing chance of ground frost, and some mist or fog patches.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 7 Oct 2014 to Tuesday 21 Oct 2014:

The broadly northwest-southeast split in the weather conditions is showing signs of persisting into mid-October. This pattern would leave southern, central and eastern parts tending to see the best of the weather with conditions often fine and dry. Occasional bouts of rain should still be expected, and mist and fog patches may be a problem during morning rush hours. Under the fine weather it should still feel pleasant with temperatures a little above average for the time of year. Further northwest, conditions are likely to be more unsettled with more frequent outbreaks of rain, these perhaps accompanied by strong winds. Temperatures here should be closer to average or perhaps even just below at times.

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.
