Met Office predicted snow for Newcastle this weekend

It’s going to rain as well

The Met Office have issued a severe weather warning for rain and snow in the North East region this weekend.

There could be snowfall of 5-10cm in some places, while rainfall could be as high as 20-40mm.

Temperatures over the weekend are unlikely to rise above 5°C.

The weather is not predicted to be as severe as the conditions of Storm Desmond last weekend, which caused severe flooding across the North of the country, and no more flooding is predicted as a result of this weekend’s forecast.

However, conditions could cause some travel disruption.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: “There is a low likelihood of this being sufficiently heavy and prolonged as to lead to some flooding of properties and parts of communities, as well as some travel disruption. However, any impacts are not expected to be as widespread or severe as those observed last weekend.

“In addition, there is also the potential for the rain to turn to snow and accumulate – mostly likely, but not exclusively, on high ground.”
