A weekend of unsettled weather is ahead of us with showers and bouts of rain forecast across both days and into early next week.


The Met Office is expecting that today (Saturday, July 2) will bring a largely dry and sunny start for the North East region, but showers will soon develop over the hills.

These will spread eastwards across the region during the morning.

The showers will be heavier and more frequent early afternoon and perhaps thundery at times.

The Met Office says it will be breezy but temperatures will be near normal for the time of year, with a maximum of 19°C on Saturday.

Tonight the showers will die away, followed by a dry and largely clear night with light winds.

It will become cloudier with patchy light rain over the western hills of the region around dawn.


On Sunday sunny spells and scattered showers are predicted for the region and they may be locally heavy.
