Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 7 Sep 2015 to Wednesday 16 Sep 2015:

Settled conditions with variable cloud amounts and sunny spells are to develop through Monday. Perhaps a few light showers may develop around windward coasts in the east and northwest at first. Through the rest of the outlook period the settled conditions should become established across all parts, with some cool misty starts followed by dry and fine days. Temperatures will be close to normal and it will feel pleasantly warm in the sunshine and gradually trend upwards through the week. Overnight temperatures are likely to be on the chilly side at first, with a risk of some localised rural grass frosts, most especially in the north. More unsettled conditions are likely to develop towards the northwest during the latter half of the period.

UK Outlook for Thursday 17 Sep 2015 to Thursday 1 Oct 2015:

The second half of September is likely to see a trend towards a northwest, southeast split, with the southeast holding on to the best of the drier weather, although with occasional unsettled spells developing here, while the northwest sees more regular outbreaks of rain and strong winds. Temperatures will be generally close to average, but with cooler conditions developing towards the north and west later. By the end of the month there is a small chance of some more settled warmer conditions becoming established again.

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.
