Poole Weather, When to Go and Climate Information

(Poole, Dorset, England, UK)

The weather in Poole 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 the Poole climate is generally mild. However, the weather can be fairly changeable and the morning may start off rather gloomy and damp, but by the afternoon the sun can be shining and the temperature soaring.

The Poole beaches and harbourside areas of Poole 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, Poole tends to be milder than many inland areas.

Spring is a particularly popular time to visit Poole, in March, April and May, when the weather 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 Poole Park is 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 Poole, although there is often some fine, sunny weather. Whatever the weather, there is always plenty to see and do in Poole.
