UK forecast for the next 5 days

Many places dry and warm with plenty of sunshine.

Low cloud and patchy fog across eastern parts of England will soon lift and break, leaving most places warm and dry with long sunny spells. However, the far north of Scotland will turn cloudier with a little rain.

Warm and dry for most again but with a little more cloud around than recently. The best of the sunshine will be across western Britain.

Updated at: 0431 on Tue 21 Apr 2015

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 25 Apr 2015 to Monday 4 May 2015:

It is likely to be unsettled throughout Saturday and Sunday with spells of showery rain and breezy conditions affecting many regions. During the rest of the period, most areas will be affected by bouts of unsettled weather with showers and longer spells of rain. Some heavy showers are possible, and during the last few days of April, some of the showers may also be wintry over hills. In spite of the rain and showers there should be some brighter periods too. Conditions are also likely to turn cooler than of late during late April, more especially in the north, and this change may happen as early as next weekend. Windy at times too, especially in the north.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 5 May 2015 to Tuesday 19 May 2015:

The unsettled conditions that will become established during late April are likely to persist into early May. Beyond this, there are no strong signals regarding likely weather types. As such, the most likely scenario is for weather conditions during this period to be fairly typical for the time of year with spells of fine and bright weather interspersed with occasional bouts of more unsettled and changeable conditions. Daytime temperatures are likely to be above average when conditions are fine and near or a little below average during unsettled weather. As is common for the time of year, spells of settled weather may be accompanied by chilly evenings with 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.
