Newcastle-Upon-Tyne Climate & Weather

Newcastle-Upon-Tyne Climate and Weather

Newcastle's climate is temperate, and although typical of the United Kingdom, it can be highly changeable. Due to the Gulf Stream, temperatures are usually warmer than in the rest of the UK and as Newcastle is in the rain shadow of the North Pennines, it is also one of the UK's driest cities. Summers are usually sunny and warm, while winters are cold, with some occasional snow. Summer is the most popular time to visit, although the nightlife is energetic all year round.
