Tyne Tees Easter Weekend Weather

Tunstall Hill Nature reserve Sunderland LEE HARGREAVE Photo:

The Easter Weekend has begun on a very positive note - dry with much lighter winds and some decent spells of sunshine. But how long can the settled conditions hang on for?

It continues to look like a weekend of two halves - the first half staying mainly fine and dry with some lovely spring sunshine. The second half a little more unsettled.

There will be a gradual decline as the weekend progresses. There still is a degree of uncertainty on how much and how far the weather will deteriorate from the southeast during Sunday, but it will definitely turn cloudier. Winds will be stronger by Sunday and it will feel cooler - especially for eastern coasts. The risk of rain is much higher.
