Weather in Newcastle

Newcastle has milder temperatures compared to southern England. In the summer (June to September), temperatures are typically around 20°C (68°F), whilst the mercury can fall close to freezing in the winter (December to February). Despite its coastal location, Newcastle is one of the driest cities in the UK because it is in the shadow of the North Pennines. A mixture of music festivals, food shows and art exhibitions take place in the summer months with the annual Great North Run busying the streets each September.
