North East England weather forecast

Headline:

Rather cold, but bright and breezy once early rain clears.

Today:

Rather cold with some rain to start, with a risk of icy patches for a time and a little wet snow on higher ground. Remaining rather cold, but soon becoming drier, bright and breezy, and remaining so through the afternoon. Maximum temperature 5 °C.

Tonight:

Mainly dry with clear spells overnight, perhaps interrupted by the odd fleeting shower. Winds should ease, which is likely to lead to frost and perhaps some patches of freezing fog. Minimum temperature -2 °C.

Tuesday:

Rather cold, with areas of fog and low cloud perhaps slow to clear, but a largely dry day. Most should see eventual sunny spells, perhaps with isolated brief showers. Maximum temperature 5 °C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Wednesday initially cold with some fog, lifting to low cloud as milder, windier conditions develop ahead of late rain. Remaining unsettled Thursday, ahead of a potentially wet and windy Friday.

UK long range weather forecast

There should be plenty of sunshine around on Friday with temperatures expected to remain above average. However, some coastal showers can be expected before winds increase from the south, accompanied by a spell of rain. Thereafter, it will turn milder and unsettled again as further bands of rain and strong winds edge in from the west. Changeable and sometimes windy conditions will probably last for the rest of the period. Most of the rain will probably be in the west with drier spells more likely in the east and southeast. Snow may occur at times in the north, mainly on high ground. There remains a chance of brief drier, colder interludes, with an increased risk of frost and fog.

Updated:

Confidence is low throughout this period. Changeable and sometimes windy conditions seem more likely through late December, with the wetter weather in the west and longer drier spells in the east. By the time we go into January, longer spells of more widely dry, quiet and bright weather are possible, especially for southern and central areas, with the northwest more likely to remain unsettled. Temperatures should be near to or somewhat above average overall, but with the usual day to day variations. However in quieter spells, it is likely to be colder generally, with an increased risk of frost and fog.
