Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 23 Apr 2015 to Saturday 2 May 2015:

The start of this period will begin generally dry with good sunny spells across the British Isles. However, it is likely that the weather will gradually turn more unsettled during Friday and into the last few days of April, most probably from the south or west. Light winds are forecast in most areas at first, although breezier conditions are expected at times in the south, and a transition to generally windier weather is on the cards through the period. Temperatures are likely to be above average at first, before cooling down to near normal. This more unsettled and cooler weather pattern is then expected to continue into the early part of May, with a chance of some wet and windy conditions affecting the British Isles.

UK Outlook for Sunday 3 May 2015 to Sunday 17 May 2015:

There is some uncertainty regarding the weather forecast during this period. However, the most likely scenario is for weather conditions to be fairly typical for the time of year. As a result some wet weather is likely at times along with some drier and brighter periods, perhaps the best of these developing towards the south and east. Daytime temperatures will probably range from close to average during unsettled weather to above average when conditions are fine, and it will feel pleasantly warm in the sunnier spells as a result. As is common for the time of year, the more settled spells may be accompanied by chilly evenings with some isolated overnight frost in rural areas.

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.
