Northeast England

A wet start, becoming drier and brighter later.


A cloudy and breezy morning with outbreaks of rain, some heavy at first. Becoming drier and brighter into the afternoon, with some sunny spells developing, though remaining breezy and feeling quite cool out of the sun. Maximum Temperature 17C.


A dry evening with sunny spells, but becoming windy, with gales over the Pennines. Staying windy overnight, and turning cloudy, with outbreaks of light rain. Feeling chilly in the wind. Minimum Temperature 8C.


Winds soon easing and cloud breaking to leave a day of sunny spells and scattered blustery showers, some heavy later with a risk of hail and thunder. Feeling quite cool. Maximum Temperature 15C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday each see further daytime showers, though less frequent and less heavy than on Monday, with lighter winds also, and becoming dry overnight. Feeling increasingly humid.

UK Outlook for Thursday 30 May 2019 to Saturday 8 Jun 2019

On Thursday and Friday changeable, breezy weather is likely to prevail, with a mixture of showers and some longer spells of rain. However parts of the north will probably stay drier and brighter at first with only isolated showers. Into next weekend and the start of the following week, there is likely to be a change towards more settled conditions from the southwest. This would bring drier conditions with some sunny spells here, however showers or longer spells of rain may continue further north. Through the rest of the period confidence is low, and any more generally settled weather conditions may still be interspersed by occasional bouts of wetter and windier weather. Temperatures will start rather cool, but will soon recover to near or a little above normal.

UK Outlook for Sunday 9 Jun 2019 to Sunday 23 Jun 2019

Whilst confidence is low throughout this period, the most probable trend for the middle two weeks of June is for an increasingly settled weather picture across the UK. Whilst this may bring spells of dry and often sunny weather, warmer day time temperatures may occasionally trigger heavy, possibly thundery showers. However there still remains a risk of areas of low pressure bringing longer spells of rain across the UK at times, perhaps with some stronger winds. Temperatures will be near normal or warm overall for the time of year.
