Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 10 Jul 2015 to Sunday 19 Jul 2015:

Fine, dry and warm across many parts of the UK on Friday, although occasional rain will affect the far northwest. The fine, dry and warm weather could hang on in the far southeast of the country until the end of next weekend, but otherwise turning more unsettled with rain, perhaps heavy and thundery, spreading slowly and erratically east. This then heralds a change to a more unsettled interlude next week, with bands of rain and showers affecting most parts at times. However, the heaviest and more frequent spells of rain will tend to be in the northwest, with southern and eastern parts of the UK still having some spells of dry, bright and warm weather.

UK Outlook for Monday 20 Jul 2015 to Monday 3 Aug 2015:

For the rest of July and into the early part of August the pattern of warm, dry spells interspersed with relatively short-lived more unsettled spells of weather, which has dominated so far this summer, is most likely to continue. Frequent spells of rain and showers are most probable in the north and west, with a good deal of fine, dry weather likely further south and east. Overall temperatures are likely to be on the warm side of average and there could be occasional spells of hot weather, especially in the south and east. Generally probably drier than average for many parts of the UK, but there is still a risk of some heavy showers or thunderstorms, especially in the warmer spells of weather.

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.
