Yesterday, temperatures peaked at 21c, 70f through parts of Northumberland.
Values today climbed to 20c by 1pm in Bulmer. There is the potential for the mercury to climb by another degree or two during the next hour or so, so it looks like we may be on course to match or pip Friday's top temperature.
Plenty of sun around the region for the remainder of Saturday, always the best of the sunshine through the east and SE of the region. Gentle breeze and more sun to come tomorrow.
