It's four years to the day since 'Thunder Thursday'.
Torrential rain and thunder storms meant on this day in 2012 commuters had a tricky journey home after roads were left flooded and grid locked.
Flooding closed the Tyne Tunnel, left over 23,000 homes without power and trains north of Newcastle were cancelled after a landslide on the East Coast Mainline.
After a dry start with some sunny spells, cloud will thicken from the west to bring outbreaks of rain across the region through the afternoon.
Maximum Temperature 17 °C.
