After a gradual decline on Holiday Monday, and a spell of rain overnight, a showery westerly feed of weather moves our way for the next few days.
Despite some sunshine, and temperatures hovering around average, low pressure is in charge - bringing weather fronts our way from time to time for the rest of this week.
Here's your Tyne Tees forecast.......
