UK Outlook for Wednesday 3 Dec 2014 to Friday 12 Dec 2014:

After a frosty start on Wednesday, it will be a dry but rather chilly day in the south, with sunny spells. It will tend to be cloudier and windier across the north with outbreaks of rain possible in the west. Through the rest of the week, pressure will continue to build from the west, bringing largely settled weather with variable cloud and sunny spells with the risk of frost and fog patches forming by night. However, northwestern parts will tend to be windier with occasional rain and hill snow. Temperatures are likely to be below average, especially where fog lingers and perhaps in the north over the weekend. Into the week after next, there is an increasing likelihood of more unsettled conditions spreading back to all areas.

UK Outlook for Saturday 13 Dec 2014 to Saturday 27 Dec 2014:

There is no strong signal in weather patterns during this period. However, the most likely scenario is a trend towards more unsettled and, at times, windy weather, especially in western parts of the UK, with eastern parts seeing the best of any dry weather. Temperatures are generally expected to be around average for the time of year. There is a chance of some overnight and morning frost and fog in places. There is also a chance of some snow on higher ground in the north.

Southampton information

Southampton has long been established as one of the UK's foremost ports. Whilst today's docks may be best known for departing cruise liners, the city has played a major part in maritime history. Southampton was the city that first saw the departure of the Mayflower in 1620 and, in 1912, Southampton was the starting point for the RMS Titanic on its maiden voyage.

The Southampton boat show is also held annually in the city and is a key event in the maritime calendar.

The city has a proud sporting culture, with Southampton Football Club playing at the St Mary's Stadium. The Rose Bowl, home to Hampshire Cricket Club, also hosts regular international cricket.

Generally Southampton has mild winters. The average minimum temperature only falls as low as 2.6 °C in February; which is the coldest month of the year. This is mainly as a result of its close proximity to the sea. Likewise February also has the maximum number of air frost days, though notably lower than the UK average. The highest number of days with rainfall more than 1mm are in January - and winter has more than any other season. Despite this, rainfall accumulation is higher in autumn.

Temperatures can be mild from March onwards, with long term highs of 11 °C. By May, this figure rises to 17 °C. Costal locations can be affected by sea breezes, which result in lower maximum temperatures than further inland. Sunshine hours increases significantly in April from the previous month, and the figure is much higher than the UK average. Rainfall in Southampton is lower in spring than nationally, with May the driest month in the season.

July is the hottest month in Southampton and August is close behind. Average daytime maxima are 22.4 °C and 22.3 °C respectively. Extreme maximum temperatures can occur in either month and are usually associated with heat waves lasting several days. The highest temperature ever recorded in Southampton was 35.6 °C on 28th June. There are more sunshine hours in summer than any other season. Rainfall averages in Southampton during summer are half the national average and the driest month of the year is July, with an average of only 42 mm of rain.

Temperatures usually stay warm in September with an average daytime maximum of 19.8 °C. This is around 3 °C higher than the UK average. Rainfall accumulation in Southampton is highest in Autumn compared to any other season and typically the most rain falls in November. Days of air frost are around 1 day every two years in October, but the likelihood increases dramatically in November.

All climate data based on Southampton W.C, 1981 - 2010.
