Sunday, 22nd August 2021, 1:40 pm

The Met Office forecast for the North East says today, Sunday, August 22, will see cloud cover break as the afternoon progresses, with light winds and a maximum temperature of 20C.

Remaining showers will slowly die this evening, out to leave a dry second half of the night, with developing clear spells perhaps allowing a few fog patches to form inland and a minimum temperature of 8°C.

Monday, August 23 will start cloudy but brighten up, with decent warm sunny spells developing more widely into the afternoon, though it will perhaps become cloudier in coastal districts later.

Sunderland is set for some sunshine this week.

The weather will remain mainly fine from Tuesday to Thursday (August 24-26), with light onshore winds perhaps giving some cloudy mornings, then sunny spells breaking through.

Thursday will be generally cloudier with a little rain possible.

The last week of the month is likely to be dominated by high pressure, bringing fine and settled weather to the UK.

These settled conditions are likely to persist through much of this period, while winds will be light to moderate for most, with breezier conditions towards the edge of the high pressure in the far south of the region, where it may feel cooler.
