Forecast summary

  • Regional
  • UK 5 days
  • UK 6-30 days

Regional forecast for North East England

Mainly fine with some sunny spells. Cloudier later.

Today:

After a cool start, a warm and dry day should develop, with sunny spells and a southwesterly breeze. The sunshine may turn hazy under high cloud on occasion, this most likely in northern areas later in the afternoon. Maximum Temperature 15 °C.

Tonight:

Cloud should thicken and lower into the evening, perhaps eventually bringing the odd spot of rain by the early hours, although this should prevent most areas from seeing a frost. Minimum Temperature 4 °C.

Thursday:

Largely dry but probably rather cloudy during the morning, although with lighter winds and sunny spells becoming more prevalent later, it should again feel warm in afternoon sunny spells. Maximum Temperature 16 °C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Still largely fine during this period, with some hazy sunny spells, although there is a chance of some coastal fog at times over the weekend and perhaps isolated thundery showers.

Updated at: 0301 on Wed 4 May 2016

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Dry with sunny spells for most. Feeling warmer.

Today:

After a chilly start, most places will have a fine and dry day with plenty of warm sunshine. However, cloud and outbreaks of rain will slowly spread southeastwards across parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland as the day progresses.

Tonight:

Patchy rain will continue to spread south into northern England, with clear spells following and with some showers possible in the far northwest. Elsewhere will be dry with clear skies.

Thursday:

Most places will be fine and dry, with plenty of warm sunshine, albeit rather hazy at times. Thicker cloud with outbreaks of rain possible across the far northwest of Scotland.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Fine and warm for most on Friday with the odd shower possible across northern Scotland. Staying warm into the weekend, but an increasing risk of some thundery showers developing.

Updated at: 0238 on Wed 4 May 2016

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 8 May 2016 to Tuesday 17 May 2016:

Rain across north-western parts on Sunday will clear through the day. Otherwise it is expected to be generally dry and warm or locally very warm with sunny spells into next week though a few isolated thunderstorms are possible each afternoon, mainly across England and Wales. There is also the chance of more persistent rain running into southern parts at times. Some eastern coastal areas may see more in the way of cloud and mist and so will feel cooler. During the weekend of the 14th and 15th and into the following week a change in conditions looks likely with temperatures falling nearer to normal and more in the way of cloud and rain for north-western parts. Conversely southern and southeastern parts may then see the best of the drier weather.

Updated at: 1238 on Tue 3 May 2016

UK Outlook for Wednesday 18 May 2016 to Wednesday 1 Jun 2016:

At the start of this period we are likely to be seeing showers or longer spells of rain primarily affecting north-western parts but still interspersed with some drier and brighter spells. Southern and particularly southeastern parts are likely to be seeing the best of conditions though even here some rain is likely at times. Temperatures are likely to be near average overall, particularly in the northwest, but with some warm and sunny days likely.
