  • UK 6-30 days

Regional forecast for North East England

Dry with sunny spells. Unseasonably mild.

Today:

Rather cloudy at first, however conditions should improve to give a bright and unseasonably mild day, with plenty of sunny spells and a southerly breeze. Becoming windy as it clouds over from the west late on. Maximum Temperature 19C.

Tonight:

Remaining clear spells will give way to cloud and occasionally heavy rain from the west. Both the wind and the rain should ease towards dawn, with clearer, colder conditions following. Minimum Temperature 9C.

Saturday:

Colder than of late and increasingly breezy, but otherwise bright with plenty of sunny spells, these eventually giving way to cloudier conditions from the west later. Wet and windy overnight. Maximum Temperature 14C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Cloudy, mild conditions on Sunday will give way to cooler, brighter and more showery weather into the new working week. Periodically windy, with slight frosts possible in overnight lulls.

Issued at: 0400 on Fri 31 Oct 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Dry and warm for many, but rain in the northwest.

Today:

A dry day across much of the country with warm sunny spells, especially in the south and east, although outbreaks of rain will continue in the far northwest. Winds will strengthen in the west, with rain edging slowly southeastwards later.

Tonight:

A dry end to the day for many, but cloud, rain and strong winds will continue to move southeastwards overnight, with clearer, showery conditions following into the northwest by dawn.

Saturday:

Rain in the southeast will be slow to clear. Elsewhere, plenty of dry, bright weather, but further rain and strong winds arriving into western areas later in the afternoon.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Rain over central areas gradually clearing to the southeast on Sunday, with cooler, showery weather following and continuing through Monday.Colder still, but showers easing a little on Tuesday. Windy.

Issued at: 0400 on Fri 31 Oct 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 4 Nov 2014 to Thursday 13 Nov 2014:

On Tuesday, a cool and showery north or northwesterly airstream will affect the UK, with showers most frequent in the northwest where they may fall as snow over hills. It will be windy at times too. Temperatures generally a little below average, and feeling cold in comparison to the recent very mild weather. Showers should gradually ease from around midweek with more in the way of brighter weather, and frost at night. Thereafter a return to more unsettled and windy weather from the west looks the most likely scenario, with spells of rain pushing northeastwards across the country interspersed by brighter, showery and colder days. Some particularly wet and windy weather is a possibility at times. Temperatures are likely to return to nearer normal for November.

UK Outlook for Friday 14 Nov 2014 to Friday 28 Nov 2014:

During this period, the generally west or southwesterly flow is likely to bring spells of wet and windy weather, especially to northern and western parts of the UK. However, southern and eastern areas may see some drier and settled conditions increasing the likelihood of some sunshine, but also the risk of frost, mist and fog overnight, the latter of which could be slow to clear. Spells of unsettled weather are still likely across the south and east though. Daytime temperatures may well be near normal, although it will feel colder during any wet and windy spells.

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.
