    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Sunday 7 Sep 2014 to Tuesday 16 Sep 2014:

    Variable, in places large, amounts of cloud and some sunny spells on Sunday. The cloud may be thick enough for the odd drizzly shower. However, cloud and outbreaks of rain, locally heavy, may affect southwestern parts at times. Into next week, still a good deal of dry and bright weather, especially towards the north and northwest, but probably becoming more unsettled across southern areas with outbreaks of rain developing, heavy at times. Light winds at first, but becoming breezy from the southwest. Temperatures generally near or a little above average. Into the latter part of next week and beyond, the most likely scenario is for the unsettled conditions to migrate towards the northwest of the UK, with the best of the drier and warmer conditions towards the southeast.

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 17 Sep 2014 to Wednesday 1 Oct 2014:

    During mid to late September most regions can expect to see periods of fine weather, with some warm sunshine at times. However, these fine periods may well be interspersed with occasional spells of cloudier, more unsettled conditions bringing showers or longer spells of rain. Northern and western parts are probably most likely to see the more frequent bouts of unsettled weather, whilst southern and eastern parts should see the better fine and dry spells. Daytime temperatures are likely to be above average during fine weather leaving conditions feeling pleasantly warm. Nights, however, may well be on the chilly side. During any unsettled weather daytime temperatures are more likely to be near or below average leaving conditions feeling cool.

    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.
