Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 4 Apr 2015 to Monday 13 Apr 2015:

Probably a fair amount of cloud around Saturday and Sunday. Also most likely a good deal of dry weather, though some southern and western parts may see some early rain Saturday and some eastern parts may catch isolated showers this weekend. Winds will be mainly light, and daytime temperatures most likely near or just below average. Into Easter Monday, outbreaks of rain and stronger winds are likely to affect northwestern parts, whilst other areas remain largely dry and bright. The unsettled conditions then look likely to spread further across the UK by mid-week, many parts breezier then too. Thereafter, northwestern areas are likely to have the most changeable conditions with spells of rain interspersed with colder, showery weather, with the best of the drier and brighter conditions to the southeast.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 14 Apr 2015 to Tuesday 28 Apr 2015:

During the second half of April conditions are considered most likely to be broadly typical for the time of year. As such some spells of fine, dry weather are likely, the best of these probably over southern regions, but occasional bouts of more unsettled weather with rain or showers should also be expected, perhaps more especially in the north. During fine spells maximum temperatures are likely to be near or a little above average, whilst during showery spells daytime temperatures may well be below average, especially in the north. Some cold nights, with localised frost, are also likely at times.

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.
