UK Outlook for Monday 6 Jul 2015 to Wednesday 15 Jul 2015:

Monday looks to start bright for most with perhaps only a few showers affecting north and western parts of the country. However as we go through the afternoon there is an increasing risk of some rain spreading into the west and northwest at times, and there is a low risk of isolated thundery showers developing late on Monday afternoon in the South East, but most places here will remain dry and fine. Becoming slightly cloudier and cooler generally towards the middle of the week, before temperatures building again towards the weekend, with a risk of thundery showers pushing up from the continent at times. Temperatures will remain near or slightly above average for many, though the very warm, humid conditions could perhaps return to the south and southeast at times.

UK Outlook for Thursday 16 Jul 2015 to Thursday 30 Jul 2015:

Many southern and central parts of the UK are likely to be mostly dry, often with fine, warm conditions. Out towards the north and northwest there will be some cloudier conditions with rain at times, however even here any periods of rain may well be less frequent than normal with some good periods of dry weather expected. Temperatures are likely to be around average in the northwest, but in the southeast there will be spells of very warm weather for the time of year, and could possibly become hot at times with a low risk of occasional thundery outbreaks.

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.
