Tyne Tees Weather: The week ahead

Allenheads, Northumberland JOHN CONNOR HUGHES Photo:

Weather conditions are changeable this week - although we're not expecting anything too dramatic.

Often a little tricky to explain in brief, the coming days will be a mix of cloud, some sun, showers and dry weather.

For many areas we are 'in between' any real significant weather - with high pressure trying to build to the south of the UK (housing drier, brighter and milder conditions) and more unsettled conditions to the north of the UK (weather fronts trying to move over the top of the high - generating cloudier skies and the risk of rain/showers).

Although a cold start to the week on Monday the coming days will be a little milder with highs 9-11C.

By night there is always the risk of frost and ice for rural spots, and with lighter winds fog patches are likely to form.

Here's the detail for the Tyne Tees region...

SUNDAY NIGHT:

Rain, heavy at times, especially over The Pennines and potentially wintry, will clear away later in the night. Winds easing and the cloud breaking.

Turning cold with frost in places during the early hours, lows -1°C, although rain could linger in the east for the first part of the morning.

MONDAY:

Rain lingering in the east at first. Otherwise mainly dry with bright or sunny spells, just a chance of isolated showers developing later. Highs 7°C.

OUTLOOK:

A little milder by day (8-10°C). Chilly nights in shelter (2-4°C).

Tuesday should be bright but cloudy at times with some showers developing.

Wednesday is tricky but at this stage looks more promising with a dry day for most with some bright/sunny intervals.

Thursday will be more cloudy, rain at times and perhaps quite breezy.
