UK forecast for the next 5 days

Very warm and sunny for most on Wednesday.

This Evening and Tonight:

Low cloud in the east will edge westwards into central parts overnight giving some mist and hill fog in places, while showery rain in western Northern Ireland and western Scotland eases. Elsewhere it will remain fine, with some clear periods.

Wednesday:

Mainly fine and very warm or hot with low cloud across central parts becoming confined to northeastern coasts where it will feel cooler. Isolated thundery showers in the southwest later.

Dry and fine for most, but occasional showers in the south, some heavy and thundery. Cloudier in the northwest with occasional rain. Very warm for many, locally hot at first.

Issued at: 1700 on Tue 22 Jul 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 27 Jul 2014 to Tuesday 5 Aug 2014:

Largely fine and dry weather is expected across southern parts of the UK initially, although isolated showers could affect the southeast, while in the north a band of showery rain may edge southwards through Sunday. It will remain warm or very warm for many, and perhaps locally hot in places, although sea breezes should keep some coastal parts a little fresher. During next week, lengthy periods of fine, dry and warm weather are likely. Occasional rain and brisk winds may affect northern parts with temperatures here returning closer to average. The last part of this period should be similar, although there are indications that the more unsettled weather in the north may extend further south at times.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 6 Aug 2014 to Wednesday 20 Aug 2014:

The recent generally settled conditions are expected to persist into the first part of this period, with mostly fine and dry weather continuing across more southern parts. Towards the north, more in the way of cloud and sporadic outbreaks of rain are likely. Temperatures should remain above average for most, possibly turning locally hot for a time in the south. Later in the period, a change towards more unsettled conditions overall is looking likely with a higher risk of rain or showers, although there will also be some drier, brighter interludes.

Middlesbrough information

Middlesbrough is part of the area known as Teeside, 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
