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 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.
