Tonight:

It will remain cloudy with further outbreaks of rain overnight, though there will be drier spells too. A fairly mild night under all the cloud. Minimum Temperature 13°C.

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Pulses of heavy rain in the south. Showers further north.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 3 Sep 2015 to Saturday 12 Sep 2015:

The gradual change to more settled conditions across the UK continues with plenty of dry and bright weather across much of the UK through the weekend, however there will still be the odd shower around at first, especially towards the southeast. The mostly fine and dry weather is expected to continue through until the middle of September, however there is a risk that more unsettled conditions, with further spells of rain, could push into northwestern parts early next week. Temperatures on the whole will be slightly below average, although it will feel pleasantly warm in the sunny spells and light winds. Overnight temperatures throughout the period are likely to be on the chilly side, with a risk of localised rural frost and fog patches, mainly in the north.

UK Outlook for Sunday 13 Sep 2015 to Sunday 27 Sep 2015:

The generally settled and fine conditions are expected to continue across Southeastern parts of the UK through much of September, with plenty of dry and sunny weather, and only a low risk of short lived spells of cloud and rain. In contrast it is likely to remain on the unsettled side in the Northwest for the majority of the month, with occasional bouts of rain and strong winds likely. Temperatures will generally be around average in most parts, but feeling warm under any prolonged sunny periods in the Southeast by day, with some chilly nights in the North.

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.
