It may still only be May, but the weekend gave Newcastle some fantastic weather which wouldn’t be out of place in July or August! Highs of 19 degrees kept the city’s beer gardens and parks packed across two hugely busy days for the hospitality industry, but how much more sun and warm weather can we expect in the coming days?
How long does the Met Office forecast the warm weather to continue?
After a slightly cloudier couple of days to kick off the week which sees Newcastle hit highs of 17°C, temperatures will begin to rise again as clouds clear throughout the week.
Clear skies like we saw over the weekend are expected to return by Wednesday according to the Met Office which is predicting midweek highs of 18°C on Wednesday. Blue skies are expected to remain until the weekend when highs of 19°C on Saturday will be cancelled out by a more overcast day on Sunday.
When will it next rain in Newcastle?
The Met Office’s long term weather forecast suggests some bands of rain will hit northern areas next week, although this still remains unlikely.
Heading into June, the Met Office’s website says there is a chance of more unsettled conditions as we enter the new month. The Met Office claims “This brings the chance of heavy, thundery showers or longer spells of rain.”
Later in June, similar unsettled conditions are being predicted for southern areas while the north of the UK can expect further settled conditions.
