Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 3 Mar 2015 to Thursday 12 Mar 2015:

Conditions will be generally unsettled through the start of March with spells of cold, showery conditions interspersed with milder wetter periods. Northwestern parts will see the most frequent rainfall, and perhaps some further snowfall at times. It will also often be windy with gales, occasionally severe, across northwestern coasts and hills. Between these unsettled spells, drier and sunnier periods are likely, most prolonged across southern parts. There is an increasing signal that more prolonged settled conditions are likely to become established into the second week of March, with high pressure developing across much of the UK. The temperatures will vary with the passage of the weather systems, but will generally be near, or just below, normal for the time of year.

UK Outlook for Friday 13 Mar 2015 to Friday 27 Mar 2015:

There remains an increasing signal for higher pressure to develop at times across much of the UK. This would bring generally more settled conditions with many places dry and often sunny. Temperatures are rather uncertain, but maybe below average at times and cold overnight. This will lead to a risk of overnight frost, along with some local mist or fog patches, although these should quickly clear beneath the early spring sunshine. Whilst some cloudier conditions, along with spells of rain and showers are possible at times, the risk of any prolonged wet and windy conditions will be fairly low.

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.
