THE weather in the North-East and North Yorkshire has taken a turn for the worse with heavy rain affecting some parts of the region.

Parts of County Durham, Teesside, Hambleton and Richmondshire have seen rainfall since this morning.

But the forecast shows this rain may hold off later on with temperatures set to increase towards the end of the week.

The Met Office has also suggested there will be brighter conditions across the region as we go into the weekend.

Here's the forecast for the region - as of 5am on Monday.

Blustery winds continuing overnight, however most parts turning dry with clear spells possible, especially towards the coast. Perhaps the odd shower moving southeast across the Pennines. Minimum temperature 10 °C.
