Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 24 Sep 2014 to Friday 3 Oct 2014:

Southern parts of the UK will be dry at first with sunny spells but it will be cloudier in the north and west with rain at times. These damp conditions will spread southwards with rain weakening, and some southern and southeastern areas will probably remain dry. Brighter, showery weather may follow to the northwest. It will be quite windy, with gales in the far north, and temperatures close to normal. Into the weekend the most likely scenario is for northwestern parts of the UK to see the most unsettled conditions with strong winds and outbreaks of rain. Further south and east there should be lengthier drier periods interspersed with occasional rain. It may become warm again here. This pattern of weather is expected to stay similar into the following week.

UK Outlook for Saturday 4 Oct 2014 to Saturday 18 Oct 2014:

The north-south split in the weather is more likely than not to continue for most of the period. The best of the drier and brighter conditions are expected to be across the south and east of the UK. Here, daytime temperatures are likely to be around, and often above average with some warm sunshine. However, it could turn quite chilly during the nights, with a risk of fog patches in places. Northern and western parts are likely to see more frequent outbreaks of rain and strong winds, with gales in the far north. Daytime temperatures here are set to be below or close to average.

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.
