UK forecast for the next 5 days

Outbreaks of rain moving southeastwards, with cooler conditions following behind.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 28 May 2015 to Saturday 6 Jun 2015:

Unsettled weather is expected to see out May, bringing spells of rain interspersed by drier, brighter and more showery interludes. It will also be rather windy at times, particularly in the northwest, with periods of gales likely here, along with the bulk of expected rainfall. Southern and eastern areas look best placed for the driest, brightest weather, with a chance that the south could develop more prolonged dry conditions. Temperatures are likely to be below average in the northwest, but near average further south and east, still with the potential for some warm days. By early June there is no strong signal for a prevailing weather type, but, on balance, unsettled conditions are considered more likely along with slightly below normal temperatures, especially in the northwest.

UK Outlook for Sunday 7 Jun 2015 to Sunday 21 Jun 2015:

There still remains considerable uncertainty in the likely weather type through this period. At first, unsettled conditions and near or below average temperatures are likely, especially towards the northwest. Then, as we go further into June, there is a signal for higher pressure to become established to the northeast of the UK, which would lead to drier, warmer conditions for many, these perhaps most prolonged 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.
