Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 22 Apr 2015 to Friday 1 May 2015:

Through Wednesday and Thursday next week conditions are going to remain generally fine and dry with good sunny spells across the UK. Any showers or outbreaks of rain are going to be very isolated and largely confined to coastal parts. Nights will be chilly with a risk of rural frost whilst daytime temperatures should still be above normal and locally warm inland, though it will feel a little cooler in the south where there will be more of a breeze. Through the following weekend and the week after we are likely to have a transition to more changeable and unsettled conditions from the west/southwest with some wet weather expected. It will become much windier and also cooler than recently, with temperatures being suppressed a little below normal.

UK Outlook for Saturday 2 May 2015 to Saturday 16 May 2015:

There are signals for the unsettled and cooler conditions to last for the first few days of the peiod. Thereafter predictability becomes very limited as such conditiions should be fairly typical for the time of year. Some wet weather is likely at times along with some drier and brighter periods, perhaps the best of these towards the south and east. Daytime temperatures will probably range close to average during unsettled weather to above average when conditions are fine, and it will feel pleasantly warm in the sunnier spells as a result. As is common for the time of year, settled spells may be accompanied by chilly evenings with some isolated overnight frost in rural areas.

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.
