Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 24 Sep 2014 to Friday 3 Oct 2014:

Southern parts of the UK will be dry at first with sunny spells but it will be cloudier in the north and west with rain at times. These damp conditions will spread southwards with rain weakening, and some southern and southeastern areas will probably remain dry. Brighter, showery weather may follow to the northwest. It will be quite windy, with gales in the far north, and temperatures close to normal. Into the weekend the most likely scenario is for northwestern parts of the UK to see the most unsettled conditions with strong winds and outbreaks of rain. Further south and east there should be lengthier drier periods interspersed with occasional rain. It may become warm again here. This pattern of weather is expected to stay similar into the following week.

UK Outlook for Saturday 4 Oct 2014 to Saturday 18 Oct 2014:

The north-south split in the weather is more likely than not to continue for most of the period. The best of the drier and brighter conditions are expected to be across the south and east of the UK. Here, daytime temperatures are likely to be around, and often above average with some warm sunshine. However, it could turn quite chilly during the nights, with a risk of fog patches in places. Northern and western parts are likely to see more frequent outbreaks of rain and strong winds, with gales in the far north. Daytime temperatures here are set to be below or close to average.

Middlesbrough Weather

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.
