UK Outlook for Friday 1 May 2015 to Sunday 10 May 2015:

Friday 1st May is likely to be mainly settled, but cool. Most places should remain dry with some sunny spells, though a few showers are possible, mainly in the north and east.

These will probably move NE to affect all parts by Bank Holiday Monday. The rest of the period is expected to remain unsettled, with the wettest and windiest conditions being in the north and west, and the best of the drier and brighter spells in the southeast. Temperatures through the period are likely to be below average with local night frosts, especially in the north.

Changeable and at times unsettled conditions are most likely to persist for much of this period, though it may turn less unsettled from around mid-May onwards. These conditions are fairly typical for the time of year, with most areas experiencing spells of fine and bright weather interspersed with more changeable conditions. The most unsettled conditions are more probable across central and northern areas, with transient spells of more settled weather more likely in the in the south and southeast, especially later on in the month. Daytime temperatures are likely to be near or little below average, especially during any unsettled spells. As is common for the time of year, spells of settled weather are likely to be accompanied by chilly evenings with isolated overnight frost in rural areas.

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.
