Regional forecast for South West England

Overnight rain clearing to leave a fine day on Monday.

Extensive low cloud this evening will give some patchy light rain or drizzle. This patchy rain will give way to a band of more persistent rain pushing down from the north overnight. It will be a mild night. Minimum Temperature 6C.

Monday:

Cloud and rain will soon clear to the south with brighter skies spreading in from the north. A fine winter's afternoon will follow with sunny spells. Maximum Temperature 10C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Bright, cold start Tuesday, becoming cloudier with patchy rain later. Rain, strong winds overnight, clearing Wednesday morning. Colder thereafter with strong to gale force northwesterly winds and blustery wintry showers.

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Rain pushing southeast overnight, with colder and clearer conditions following.

This Evening and Tonight:

Band of rain in the northwest will move southeast during the night, reaching southeast England shortly before dawn. It will be mild with extensive low cloud in advance of it. To its rear, becoming clearer and colder with scattered showers.

Monday:

Cloud and rain clearing the far southeast around lunchtime, leaving a largely fine day with sunny spells. However, scattered showers will affect northern parts, these wintry in the far north.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Rain and strong winds in the northwest later Tuesday will push southeast overnight, clearing the southeast during Wednesday. Colder, windier weather follows with snow showers spreading from the northwest.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 30 Jan 2015 to Sunday 8 Feb 2015:

Sunny spells and blustery wintry showers Friday, the latter primarily affecting northern and western parts with snow across hills and to low levels in the north. It will likely turn even colder through the weekend with sleet and snow showers, frequent across northern parts, with overnight frost and ice. Strong northerly winds, with gales in places, will accentuate the cold with a significant wind chill. The best of the drier, brighter conditions will be in the south. These conditions may well last into the first week of February, but there are signs of more changeable weather by the end of the forecast period. By then, spells of wind and rain would mean that temperatures may return to nearer normal and the likelihood of snow, frost and ice would be lower.

UK Outlook for Monday 9 Feb 2015 to Monday 23 Feb 2015:

It looks most likely that unsettled conditions will continue across much of the UK with temperatures closer to normal when compared to the start of February. This may be more obvious across parts of southern and western Britain where it might be a little wetter than average as spells of wind and rain make their way in from the Atlantic.

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.
