UK forecast for the next 5 days

Mostly cloudy and mild with occasional rain or drizzle.

Showers or rain in the northwest, turning heavy and thundery at times. Generally drier with some brightness elsewhere. Windy in the north with gales this weekend, perhaps severe in Scotland.

Issued at: 1700 on Thu 23 Oct 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 28 Oct 2014 to Thursday 6 Nov 2014:

A band of cloud and rain over the northwest is expected to move southeastwards across the UK on Tuesday, clearing the far southeast by Wednesday morning. Brighter conditions should follow, however there are likely to be some showers too. These may be heavy and thundery in the north where it will probably be windy with local gales. A north-south split looks most likely to develop thereafter. Windy and unsettled conditions are likely in the north, with the best of the drier weather in the south, although there may be some rain here at times. Temperatures will generally be near normal, although feeling cold in strong winds and rain. Pressure may build further over the south into the start of November, bringing a risk of overnight frost and fog.

UK Outlook for Friday 7 Nov 2014 to Friday 21 Nov 2014:

The main signal is for a continuation of a north-south split during the second week of November. During this period, the generally westerly flow is likely to bring spells of wet and windy weather, mostly affecting northern and some western areas, but perhaps reaching other areas as well, this interspersed with drier intervals. However southern and some eastern areas will probably see more in the way of drier and settled conditions increasing the likelihood of some sunshine, but also the risk of frost, mist and fog overnight, the latter of which could be slow to clear. After this it looks like unsettled weather will spread to much of the UK. Daytime temperatures will probably 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.
