Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 15 Feb 2016 to Wednesday 24 Feb 2016:

Rather cold conditions are likely at first, with showery conditions across the east and far southwest, and fine conditions elsewhere. Showers are likely to be a mix of sleet, snow and hail, and there will be a widespread overnight frost. It should then turn drier from the west by Tuesday, but remaining cold with widespread, locally severe, overnight frosts. Later next week, unsettled, changeable conditions should gradually return from the west, with a band of cloud and rain making erratic progress eastwards, which may also give some transient snow in places. Thereafter, it should remain unsettled with northwestern areas seeing the wettest, windiest weather, and southeastern areas likely to see more in the way of drier spells. Temperatures returning to near normal, although with overnight frosts still possible.

UK Outlook for Thursday 25 Feb 2016 to Thursday 10 Mar 2016:

Indications are that the end of February will be dominated by unsettled, changeable weather coming in from the Atlantic. This will bring showers or longer spells of rain to most parts, wettest in northwestern areas, while southeastern parts may benefit from some longer dry spells. Snow is likely at times, mainly over northern hills. Temperatures should generally be near normal for the time of year, with the chance of occasional frosty nights where skies become clear. Generally windy with gales or even severe gales at times, mainly in northern and western parts. Into early March there is a possibility of more settled weather becoming established, mainly across southern areas, bringing drier and less windy conditions here, however, wet and windy weather will more likely persist in the north and west.

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. July is also the sunniest month of the year with an average of 232 sunshine hours. August has fewer days of rainfall more than 1mm than any other month, although July has the least rainfall accumulation.

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.
