Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 9 Mar 2015 to Wednesday 18 Mar 2015:

On Monday a frontal band, with quite widespread rainfall, will move slowly southeast and ease. It will be mild to the south, with colder air to the north. Into Tuesday the frontal band may well pivot and move back northwards with a risk of the rain becoming heavy for a time in the west. Also turning windy in the west and northwest with a risk of gales. From Wednesday, there looks to be generally more settled conditions across most parts of the UK. However, occasional weather systems will likely still bring cloudier interludes with rain, mainly to northern and western parts. Away from cloud and rain temperatures often near or above average leaving conditions often feeling pleasant in sunshine.

UK Outlook for Thursday 19 Mar 2015 to Thursday 2 Apr 2015:

It looks probable that pressure will remain higher than average across the UK at first. This would bring generally drier than average conditions, but it is likely that there could also be some cloud at times, with some occasional rain or showers, particularly across the north. There are signs that a more unsettled regime will return to at least some regions in late March with wetter than average conditions probably developing in the northwest, whilst drier than average conditions perhaps persist in the southeast.

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 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 Forest, 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.

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.
