  • UK 6-30 days

Regional forecast for North East England

Mostly sunny but with a cold wind.

Today:

Most places will have a dry day with long spells of sunshine but there could be the odd shower, especially in the west. The strong and blustery wind will make it feel quite cold, although it will ease later. Maximum Temperature 7C.

Tonight:

Winds will ease so temperatures will take a dip in the evening but then recover as both the cloud and wind increase overnight with a little rain by dawn. Minimum Temperature 4C.

Sunday:

Another very windy day with gales over the hills but temperatures in double figures again. It will be cloudy with some rain at times, especially over the Pennine hills. Maximum Temperature 12C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Staying cloudy, windy and mild with some rain at times on Monday and Tuesday. Much brighter but cold with some sunshine on Christmas Eve with the odd wintry shower.

Updated at: 0259 on Sat 20 Dec 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Many places becoming dry. Cold with long sunny spells.

Today:

Dry with long sunny spells for most. Showers continuing in the north and west, most frequently across northern Scotland and with snow on hills here. The showers mostly die out by the afternoon. Cold in brisk northwesterly winds.

Tonight:

Cold and dry, with some early clear spells to the south. However, becoming milder with cloud spreading across the UK and rain moving into the west, persistent across northwest Scotland.

Sunday:

Cloudy and mild with rain, mainly in the west, heaviest and most persistent across northwest Scotland, transferring slowly southeast. Strong westerly winds, gales in places. Showers over northern Scotland later.

Updated at: 0217 on Sat 20 Dec 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 24 Dec 2014 to Friday 2 Jan 2015:

A band of cloud and rain is likely to be affecting many central parts of the UK at first on Christmas Eve, clearing the southeast later. Colder conditions then spreading to many areas, continuing into Christmas day, with some wintry showers across N areas. Probably becoming increasingly unsettled into the weekend, with the risk of persistent heavy rain, gales and also a risk of significant snow, this more likely across some northern parts. Conditions after Christmas likely to remain predominantly cold across the N, but with the chance of milder interludes across the far south. Otherwise the following week looks perhaps rather cold on the whole, with snow showers likely across many northern areas but milder, wetter interludes possible at times. Generally windy for many throughout.

UK Outlook for Saturday 3 Jan 2015 to Saturday 17 Jan 2015:

The most likely scenario for the coming New Year is for a continuation of changeable, and at times windy weather coming from the Atlantic with the wettest weather probably across western parts of the UK, and eastern parts most likely to see the best of any dry weather. In between the wetter periods there should be drier, brighter, and colder spells. Temperatures are most likely to be around or slightly below average for the time of year with overnight frosts and some snow expected, particularly over the high ground.

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.
