Jubilee weekend weather: Met Office forecast for half-term break in Sunderland
We can never quite rely on the weather when the school holidays roll around.
But there’s a big half-term break ahead with nationwide celebrations for Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee coming later in the week.
Whether you’re going away for a few days or getting the buffet and decorations sorted for a bank holiday street party, here’s what to expect as it stands:

Forecasters say there's still much to be determined weather-wise for the Jubilee weekend – but so far, it could be best to pack your rain coat AND suncream.
A plume of warm air from over the near continent is the focus of much of the uncertainty, the Met Office explained.
Chris Bulmer, Deputy Chief Meteorologist, said: “After a fine day for most on Saturday, and some on Sunday, cooler and more unsettled conditions will be quite widely established by Monday.
“After a cool start to the week, temperatures are expected to return back to around average through the week.
"What we’re keeping an eye on for the latter part of the week is how far north this plume of warm air comes. This brings the potential for outbreaks of heavy rain in places.
"There’s still a lot to be determined for the Jubilee Weekend forecast. On balance, it looks like after a showery start, though still fine in places, high-pressure will attempt to build from the west bringing more settled and drier weather, at least for some.”
