Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 2 Jul 2016 to Monday 11 Jul 2016:

The changeable and often unsettled weather is likely to continue across most parts through this period. Bands of rain are expected to push eastwards across the country, these interspersed with drier and brighter periods, but also some showers, perhaps some heavy ones at times. The wettest weather is always more likely in the north and west where it will occasionally be windy too, whilst the south and east will see the best of any drier spells along with generally lighter winds. Temperatures on the whole are expected to be near, or somewhat below average for the time of year, but feeling cool more generally in the northwest in any wetter and winder spells. Conversely, it will feel warm in any drier and sunnier periods, especially in the south and east.

Updated at: 1240 on Mon 27 Jun 2016

UK Outlook for Tuesday 12 Jul 2016 to Tuesday 26 Jul 2016:

Changeable conditions are likely to persist at first, with rain or showers across many areas, particularly the north or northwest, and temperatures near average. Around the middle of July there is the possibility that a spell of more settled weather will develop, potentially bringing longer dry periods to much of the country. With this change there would be more in the way of sunshine with generally warm temperatures and lighter winds. However there is also the possibility of more humid continental air moving up across the southeast at times, bringing very warm temperatures and a risk of some thundery showers here.

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.
