A milder night than the last, with spells of rain becoming lighter and more intermittent into the early hours as winds also ease a little. Minimum Temperature 8C.

Issued at: 0500 on Wed 22 Oct 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Wet and windy in north. Drier, but increasingly cloudy elsewhere.

Today:

A dry, bright and chilly start for many southern and eastern areas, though it will turn cloudier through the day. Rain and strengthening winds will return to Northern Ireland, Scotland and northern England, turning heavy at times over western hills.

Tonight:

Generally cloudy with a few clear spells in the southeast and occasional rain in the west, persistent in some northwestern areas. A milder night, but remaining windy in the north.

Thursday:

A generally breezy and cloudy day with some brighter spells in the south and east. Sporadic outbreaks of rain, mainly in the west, persistent in the northwest. Temperatures above normal.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

A band of rain will push southeast through Friday, clearing southeast England early Saturday. Then all parts brighter with occasional showers, more rain in the northwest later. Becoming very windy.

Issued at: 0500 on Wed 22 Oct 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 26 Oct 2014 to Tuesday 4 Nov 2014:

Showery and very windy across northern areas on Sunday and Monday, with a risk of severe gales for a time. Somewhat less windy further to the south, though with increasing amounts of cloud. Into the midweek period, a north-south split looks most probable, with windy and often unsettled conditions continuing in the north and somewhat quieter, drier weather in the south. Temperatures will generally be near normal, although feeling quite cold in the strong winds. Towards the end of October and into early November, the broad north-south split looks set to continue, with northern areas remaining changeable and at times unsettled. Further south, there are hints that pressure may start to rise, increasing the potential for more prolonged drier periods, but with a greater risk of overnight frost and fog.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 5 Nov 2014 to Wednesday 19 Nov 2014:

The main signal is for a continuation of a north-south split during the first half of November. During this period, the generally westerly flow is likely to bring spells of wet and windy weather, interspersed with drier intervals. These should mostly affect northern and some western areas, but perhaps reaching other areas as well at times. However southern and some eastern areas will probably see more in the way of the drier and settled conditions increasing the likelihood of seeing some sunshine, but also the risk of frost, mist and fog overnight, the latter of which could be slow to clear. Daytime temperatures are likely to be near or a little above normal, although feeling cooler during any wet and windy spells.

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.
