Sunderland weather forecast as city set for mini heatwave ahead of Easter weekend

Sunderland is set for a week of mixed temperatures as the mercury climbs but then drops back.

Today and tomorrow, Tuesday and Wednesday, March 30 and 31, look to be the pick of the bunch, with sunshine and temperatures of up to 18C before Thursday turns cooler.

The Met Office forecast for the North East says today will be sunny and warm but tonight will turn chilly with a minimum of 4C.

Tomorrow will be fine before perhaps becoming cloudier in the north, with a little drizzle by evening and a maximum of 18C.

Thursday is likely to be cooler but mostly dry, with some sunny spells and a risk of frost overnight.

Chief Meteorologist Steve Ramsdale said: “Conditions will start to change through the day on Thursday as cooler air moves in from the north east, highs will fall by Friday, especially along the east coast. However, conditions are expected to remain dry for the majority.

"Through Sunday, an even colder pool of air will start to push in across the UK from the north west, bringing a notable change to temperatures compared to the start of the week.”
