UK forecast for the next 5 days

Dry with broken cloud and clear spells for most.

This Evening and Tonight:

It will be largely dry with a mix of cloud and clear spells, any remaining rain and thicker cloud in southeast England will soon clear. Showers, however will continue across northern and western Scotland overnight.

Monday:

Largely dry with plenty of cloud but also some brightness or sunshine developing, especially in the east. Some patchy rain or showers may affect parts of the northwest at times.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Many areas dry during Tuesday and Wednesday, best of brightness in the east. Rain and strong winds reaching the northwest later Wednesday, spreading east Thursday morning, with blustery showers later.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 29 May 2015 to Sunday 7 Jun 2015:

May is expected to end unsettled, with spells of rain interspersed by drier, brighter and more showery interludes. It may be rather windy, particularly in the northwest, with a risk of gales, and the bulk of the rainfall. Southern and eastern areas look best placed for the driest, brightest weather. Temperatures are likely to be below average in the northwest, but near average further south and east. Into June the signal for prevailing weather becomes fairly weak, but, on balance, unsettled conditions are considered more likely in the northwest at first, with slightly below average temperatures, and settled, warmer, conditions in the southeast. Towards the weekend these warmer more settled conditions are likely to spread to most of the country with a risk of showers in the south.

UK Outlook for Monday 8 Jun 2015 to Monday 22 Jun 2015:

There still remains considerable uncertainty in the likely weather type through this period. There is, however, a signal for higher pressure to become established to the north of the UK. This would lead to drier, warmer conditions for many, these perhaps most prolonged in the north, but it may also allow some more unsettled, perhaps thundery, weather to move up from continental Europe and affect the south of the country.

Middlesbrough information

Middlesbrough is part of the area known as Teesside, which is itself a modern construct to recognise the conurbation formed from the towns of Middlesbrough, Stockton-on-Tees, Thornaby, Billigham and other surrounding settlements some 250 miles north of London and about 40 miles south east of Newcastle, on the River Tees, on the North Sea coast of England.

The area is low lying river plain bounded some way to the south by the rising North Yorkshire Moors National Park and further to the west by the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The area was mainly agricultural until the 19th century, with the main local settlement, at the time being Stockton as the furthest navigable point on the river.

By 1828, shareholders from the world's first railway, the Stockton and Darlington Railway Company together with individuals with local coal mining interests bought 527 acres of what was described as "dismal swamp", to create a port, down river of Stockton that could take larger ships in order to export coal and import traded goods. This was so successful it was expanded by 1842 to create Middlesbrough Dock and the whole area continued to expand rapidly as a direct result of the Industrial Revolution.

It is still a heavily industrialised area that continues to change in the post industrialised economy.
