What is the long-term forecast for Sunderland?

Looking further ahead, the Met Office UK outlook for Tuesday 5 Feb 2019 to Thursday 14 Feb 2019 said: “Through the middle and end of next week it will be less cold than we have had recently, but still with frost and ice likely overnight.

“Weather fronts will bring bands of rain and hill snow from the north and west, which will tend to peter out as they reach southeastern parts of the UK.

“Between these spells of wet weather there will be drier and brighter periods. The wind will be brisk at times, with gales around exposed coasts and over higher ground.

“Towards the middle of February, it may become more settled with longer spells of drier weather.

“However, northwestern areas are still likely to see rain and probably hill snow at times. Temperatures will be around normal for the time of year, with some overnight frosts.”
