The Met Office's early forecast says we can expect a bright weekend with showery spells in the North East
We’ve got a warm end of the week in the North East but there will be some rainy spells.
Temperatures are set to top at 20C on Saturday and 19C on Sunday, with a pleasant Friday in store too.
But take your rain jacket or umbrella if you plan to do anything outdoors on Saturday as the summer temperatures will be accompanied by showers, if the Met Office’s early forecast proves accurate.
It will be a fine and bright start, with sunny spells throughout. Whilst many areas will remain dry, a few showers are likely to develop, perhaps turning heavy in one or two locations. Maximum temperature 22C.
Daytime showers will ease, however a band of rain will move east during the first half of the night. Turning dry, with clear spells by dawn. Minimum temperature 12C.
A dry and bright start is expected, with some sunshine. Whilst some cloud is expected to build through the day, it should remain dry with further sunny spells. Maximum temperature 22C.
Forecasters expect a dry start, with temperatures of around 16C by 10am, but as the day gets warmer the dark clouds are predicted to hit the skies.
Rain is most likely in the late morning and early afternoon. The temperature is set to peak in the early evening, at about 7pm, and the rain should subside by around 10pm.
Drier than Saturday, with only a 5-10% chance of rain predicted throughout the day. Expect temperatures to top at 18C in the early afternoon, falling to 15C by 10pm.
