UK Outlook for Sunday 5 Jun 2016 to Tuesday 14 Jun 2016:

High pressure centred to the north of Britain will initially bring a spell of settled weather for most on Sunday, with isolated showers confined to southern areas. The best of the sunshine will be found across central and western parts, whilst the east and northeast are likely to see more cloud, especially along the coast. Then as we go through the week it looks likely that it will gradually become more unsettled with an increasing risk of heavy showers or thunderstorms, especially in the south and west where it may become humid and very warm. However, some northern areas are likely to remain dry. This gradual trend to more unsettled conditions looks likely to continue through the weekend and into the following week, with temperatures also trending back towards average.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 15 Jun 2016 to Wednesday 29 Jun 2016:

It may possibly start dry in the north and northeast, but for most the middle part of June is likely to be unsettled with either showers or longer spells of rain. These are likely to be heavy and thundery at times, with the west and southwest probably experiencing the most unsettled conditions, but there should also be some drier and brighter intervals in between. Then later in the month the latest indications are that it will be changeable, with all areas likely to see rain at times, but with northern areas most likely to have the most rain and the south the best of any drier, brighter weather. Temperatures generally near or just above average, especially in the south.

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.

Autumn months see the most rainfall in Bournemouth as collectively the average accumulation is around 267 mm.
