The new week will be breezy at times for the NE, generally cloudy with some rain early in the week, but no significant fronts pulling in until Friday.

SUNDAY

This morning we saw some good sunshine from Durham southwards, unbroken sun in places.

Where you are seeing sunshine now, it will cloud over later in the day.

Best of the brightness the further south you are.

Western slopes of the Pennines see more cloud and an odd spit or spot of dampness.

Breezy over the Pennines but the wind easing during the day.

Temperatures along the east coast reaching 13c 55f in the sunny spells. Elsewhere, just getting into double figures.

SUNDAY NIGHT

Cloudy with some dampness over the Pennines. Breeze easing. Lows 8-9c so a mild night and frost free.

MONDAY

Slow start to Monday; cloudy with some dampness over the Pennines. A few brighter breaks to the east of the Pennines, Newcastle way.

Any dampness fades quickly early on.

During the afternoon, more in the way of sunshine developing to the east of the Pennines, thicker cloud across western slopes yielding a spot of drizzle but nothing much.

Highs 10-11c, 50-52f, that's around where they should be for the time of year and not as breezy as Sunday.
