UK forecast for the next 5 days

Rain clearing southeast. Cold tomorrow with blustery wintry showers. Windy.

This Evening and Tonight:

Outbreaks of rain across northwest Scotland will slowly spread southeastwards affecting most parts of the UK. Behind the rain, it will turn colder from the northwest with wintry showers following. Becoming windy, with gales in the north.

Wednesday:

Rain will clear the south through the morning. Elsewhere, bright and cold with scattered wintry showers. Snow showers turning heavy across the north later. Windy, especially in north and west.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Cold throughout with frequent sleet or snow showers, but with more sunny spells inland by Saturday. Strong to gale force winds will accentuate the cold feel.

Updated at: 1523 on Tue 27 Jan 2015

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 1 Feb 2015 to Tuesday 10 Feb 2015:

The cold and showery theme to the weather will persist through most of the first week of February as northerly winds bring hail, sleet and snow showers to the country, these frequent across northern parts, with overnight frost and ice. The strong northerly winds, with gales in places, will accentuate the cold feel with a significant wind chill. The best of the drier, brighter weather will be across sheltered southern parts. However, there are signs of more changeable weather towards the end of the first week as winds turn more westerly. By then, spells of wind and rain coming in off the Atlantic suggest that temperatures are likely to become less cold and thus the likelihood of snow, frost and ice would be lower.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 11 Feb 2015 to Wednesday 25 Feb 2015:

It looks most likely that unsettled conditions will continue across much of the UK with temperatures closer to normal when compared to the start of February. This may be more obvious across parts of southern and western Britain where it might be a little wetter than average as spells of wind and rain make their way in from the Atlantic. However, there is the possibility of pressure building around the middle of the month bringing more settled conditions, particularly in the south.

Newcastle Upon Tyne information

Newcastle information

Newcastle is in the metropolitan borough of Tyne and Wear in the North East of England.

Traditionally, Newcastle was a town belonging to the county of Northumberland and was developed as a fort on Hadrian's Wall during the roman rule. The city owes its name to a castle built in 1080 by Robert II, Duke of Normandy, but gained its importance as a trade city because of its proximity to the Tyne River.

During the industrial revolution Newcastle was famous for coal mining and the ship yards along the lower sections of the River Tyne, and became one of the world's largest shipbuilding and repairing centres.

There are many icons associated with Newcastle including Newcastle Brown Ale (a popular beer that is exported around the world) the Angel of the North and the Tyne Bridge. However, perhaps the most famous icon in the city is Newcastle United. Many a famous name, including Alan Shearer, Jackie Milburn, Peter Beardsley and Kevin Keegan have worn the famous black and white stripes in this football-mad city.

The city is also known on the sporting map for the Great North Run, which between Newcastle and South Shields, whilst Newcastle Falcons play rugby union at Kingston Park in the Gosforth area of the city. In neighbouring Gateshead, the Gateshead International Stadium hosts regular athletics meetings as well as other sporting events.

The city is also one of great culture and entertainment, boasting more theatres per person than anywhere else in the UK. These attract a variety of acts including west end shows, famous comedians, pop singers and classical artists.

The arts are not forgotten here either with the most well-known icon being Anthony Gormley's Angel of the North. With miles of sandy coastlines, Tynemouth Priory, Hadrian's Wall and the MetroCentre (the second largest shopping complex in the UK), there is something to suit everybody's tastes in Newcastle.
