What is the long-term forecast for Sunderland?

Looking further ahead, the Met Office UK outlook for Monday 11 Feb to Wednesday 20 Feb said: “The new working week will start largely dry, bright and frosty with fairly settled conditions.

“However it will become more unsettled in the northwest early in the week, with strong winds and rain here at times.

“Any snow is likely to be confined to hills. Southern and eastern areas will have a good deal of dry and often bright weather although overnight fog may become increasingly likely.

“After a cold start most places should see temperatures around where we would expect for early February but with overnight frosts likely across central and southeastern areas.

“In these parts generally colder conditions may begin to develop again. Around the middle of the month, things become very uncertain. However there is an increasing chance of more unsettled conditions developing more widely again.”
