Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 25 Oct 2014 to Monday 3 Nov 2014:

Early rain across the southeast on Saturday clearing, then showers developing. These are likely to be most frequent in the northwest, where they will be wintry over the high ground. There will be fewer showers further south with some sunny spells developing. Strong winds, especially in the north, and temperatures near normal. This north south split is likely through the following week. There will be generally drier and brighter conditions in the south with a risk of a local frost and fog overnight. More unsettled conditions are likely in the north with outbreaks of rain and a risk of gales which are likely to be interspersed with colder, more showery spells, these possibly turning wintry over Scottish hills at times. The split in conditions will likely continue into November.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 4 Nov 2014 to Tuesday 18 Nov 2014:

The main signal is for a continuation of a north/south split during the first half of November. During this period, the generally westerly flow is likely to bring spells of wet and windy weather, interspersed with drier intervals. These should mostly affect northern and some western areas, but perhaps reaching other areas as well at times. However southern and some eastern areas will probably see more in the way of the drier and settled conditions. These drier intervals will bring some sunshine at times, but also the risk of frost, mist and fog overnight. Daytime temperatures are likely to be near or a little above normal, although feeling cooler during any wet and windy spells.

Exeter information

The city of Exeter is located in south-west England in the county of Devon. Settled on the river Exe, it has a population of approximately 120,000 and acts as Devon County Council’s administrative centre with excellent national and international transport links.

The city’s motto, semper fidelis (‘always loyal’) is said to have been adopted in the late 16th century when Queen Elizabeth I gave thanks to its citizens for putting up a monetary gift with which the English built ships to defeat the Spanish Armada. Before the Industrial Revolution gave rise to the rapid growth of other cities, Exeter was vital to the country’s trade, with its fertile land and accessible waterways allowing for a huge industry at the time. Exeter is now better known for its reputation in the service sector, with a 2001 study naming the city as one of the most profitable locations in the UK from which to start a business.

Given its healthy transport links to other regions of England, supported by Exeter airport serving a variety of British and European destinations, it’s no surprise that Exeter also enjoys a thriving tourist trade. Along with its proximity to the rural treasures on Devon and Cornwall, Exeter is well-known for its status as a Fairtrade Town, having pledged to promote its lifestyle and products. Along with the great retail facilities, all of the above is what makes Exeter an ideal base for holidaymakers from which to explore their surroundings.

The Exeter Rowing Regatta is a very popular event during the summer and supporters from all over the south-west come to Exeter Quay to see the finest boat racers in competition. Located close to seaside restaurants and an outdoor market, it’s an ideal way to spend a summer’s day — the quayside also has many souvenir shops and even the odd antique dealer.

If you’re interested in seeing the sights of Exeter’s landmarks then a Red Coat Guided Tour is highly recommended. This approximately 90-minute walking tour will show off all the unique features of Exeter’s history as well as providing tourists with spoken histories of events gone by. It’s a great way to spend time in the town.

Visitors are also attracted to Exeter Racecourse, which plays host to some of Britain’s finest thoroughbreds, as well as St James Park, the home of Exeter FC.
