The North East is bathing in sunshine on what is for some parts the warmest day of the year so far.
Early mists and fog cleared quickly to leave a fine day, with largely unbroken sunshine and light winds expected to last the rest of the day, with temperatures reaching around 15C.
Sadly tonight will see temperatures cooling again down to as low as -1C in parts, with some some mist, fog and low cloud may form towards dawn. There will be light winds everywhere with a frost forming inland.
Tomorrow will again see the early mist and fog clear quite quickly. While all parts will stay dry, forecasters say there may be a little more cloud than today - but with plenty of sunshine as well. Maximum temperatures will reach about 13C.
