Forecast summary

  • Regional
  • UK 5 days
  • UK 6-30 days

Regional forecast for South West England

Feeling cold with strong winds and scattered showers.

Today:

A chilly start this morning, and another cold feeling day. There will be a scattering of showers, which could fall as snow over the Moors, but sleet or rain at lower levels. The strong wind will ease a little. Maximum Temperature 7C.

Tonight:

Further showers overnight, becoming increasingly heavy and widespread through the early hours, and turning wintry at times. Some icy stretches are likely by dawn. Minimum Temperature 0C.

Saturday:

A cold and very windy day with a mix of bright or sunny spells and further wintry showers. Gales in the west, increasing the wind chill. Maximum Temperature 6C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Remaining very cold, and generally windy, but with a good deal of dry weather, particularly on Sunday. The risk of more widespread rain and snow later on Monday.

Updated at: 0306 on Fri 30 Jan 2015

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Feeling cold with further wintry showers.

Today:

Wintry showers mainly in the north and west, but settling snow mainly confined to hills. Still feeling cold, especially in the north and west with significant wind chill. Drier further south and east, with sunny spells developing.

Tonight:

Further wintry showers overnight, with snow over hills. Gales in the north and west, but a windy night for all parts.

Saturday:

Turning colder still across Scotland and Northern Ireland, with showers turning to snow again even at low levels. Feeling very cold in the strong winds, gales in exposed western parts.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Remaining very cold. Fine and dry for many with snow showers around coasts exposed to northerly winds. Risk of more widespread rain and snow in the west early next week.

Updated at: 0306 on Fri 30 Jan 2015

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 3 Feb 2015 to Thursday 12 Feb 2015:

The general cold feel to the weather will continue during the first week of February, as the northerly winds bring hail, sleet and snow showers to the country. Showers will be frequent across northern parts and may affect other coastal areas at times, with widespread overnight frost and ice too. There is a low probability of more widespread rain and snow over south-western areas, in the first couple of days. Strong northerly winds at first, with gales in places, will lead to a significant wind chill, this gradually easing. The driest and brightest weather will be across sheltered southern parts. There are signals for a change to less cold temperatures and spells of rain by next weekend, though there is still a risk of snow, frost and ice at times.

UK Outlook for Friday 13 Feb 2015 to Friday 27 Feb 2015:

It looks most likely that unsettled conditions will continue across much of the UK with temperatures closer to normal when compared to the start of February. This may be more obvious across parts of southern and western Britain where it might be a little wetter than average as spells of wind and rain make their way in from the Atlantic. However, there is the possibility of pressure building around the middle of the month bringing drier conditions but with colder temperatures than average, particularly to the south.

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.

In 2015 rugby fans will flock to Exeter Chief's Sandy Park, as it has been selected as one of 13 match venues for the Rugby World Cup. The ground will play host to three World Cup matches.
