Tyne Tees Weather: Rest of the weekend

First day of the meteorological Spring (Baby Daffodils ALISON LEDDY) Photo:

March may have begun, and the early signs of spring are all around us, but as far as the weather is concerned it's another few days of unsettled weather with wet (and quite windy) conditions working their way through the region from west to east.

The air is quite chilly over the next few days too - meaning that showers or rain will have a wintry element, especially over hills. The risk of frost and ice overnight where skies clear.

There are signs that high pressure (drier and more settled conditions) will develops from the south later this week, but in the meantime take advantage of any sunshine on offer as rain or showers are never too far away.

Saturday:

Many places dry and bright with some sunshine but showers will develop for a time during the afternoon - slow moving, heavy and possibly thundery. Chilly high of 5-7°C

Saturday night:

A chilly evening with a touch of frost but temperatures will rise a little as freshening winds brings cloud and some rain from the west - perhaps heavy for a time on the Pennines with some snow possible over the higher areas initially. Lows 1-3 °C.

Sunday:

A colder and clearer picture more likely in the north - to Northumberland - during the morning. There's a risk of frost and ice under the clearer skies.

A mostly cloudy and increasingly windy day, some light and patchy rain in the morning before more persistent and heavier rain edges eastwards during the afternoon. Some snow is possible on higher ground. Highs 7 °C.

Outlook:

Variable cloud on Monday with some bright spells and scattered heavy showers, perhaps thundery and possibly wintry on hills.

Bright and breezy on Tuesday but rain and stronger winds overnight.

Wednesday will start with some sunshine but go downhill, windy with some rain later
