Bournemouth Weather, When to Go and Climate Information

(Bournemouth, Dorset, England, UK)

The climate in Bournemouth is typical of English weather and is often unpredictable. During the summer months of May, June, July, August and September, there are many fine and often extremely sunny days and Bournemouth remains generally mild. However, the weather can be fairly changeable and the morning may start off rather gloomy and damp, and by the afternoon the sun can be shining and the temperature soaring.

The Bournemouth beaches are often busy at this time of the year and the sunshine soon begins to warm up the inviting, blue sea. Being situated next to the sea, this traditional resort tends to be milder than many inland areas.

Spring is a particularly popular time to visit Bournemouth, in March, April and May, when the climate is generally mild, although some days may be rainy and windy. Many of the trees begin to flower at this time of the year and the town's numerous central parks and gardens are filled with drifts of daffodils and other spring flowers.

Winters can be long and damp so be sure to bring a warm overcoat, scarf and gloves. Snow is unusual, but there are often cold, clear, frosty days. December, January and February are the coldest and wettest months in Bournemouth, although there is often some fine, sunny weather. If you are planning to visit outdoor locations, water-resistant boots or shoes with a good grip are recommended as the pavements can get very wet after heavy rain, and an umbrella can be a useful item to carry. Whatever the weather, there is always plenty to see and do here.
