Sunderland looks set to see rising temperatures - here's what you can expect from the Met Office's five-day forecast
Forecasters say that as June ends and July begins, we will see a fair bit of sunshine – it’s just that we’ll see a fair bit of cloud too.
The Met Office says that over the next few days we can expect sunny intervals. The skies will alternate quite frequently between beautiful blue and overcast. We won’t see any records broken, but it will stay dry with a maximum temperature all week of 17°C.
Temperatures have dropped from their over 20°C a couple of weeks ago but what can we expect to face each day this week.
Here’s what the Met Office expects between now and the weekend:

The forecast for Monday
The skies will be patchy. However, a fair amount of sunshine will still get through, particularly in the evening. It won’t cloud over completely until the early hours of Tuesday. Temperatures of up to 16°C are expected and won’t drop below 13°C overnight. The wind will provide little more than a light breeze in the coming days. The sun won’t set until almost 10pm this week.
The forecast for Tuesday
When the sun rises at 4.30am it will be a cloudy June 29, but the sunny intervals will start again soon afterwards and should last until 4pm or so. Cloud will become thicker as the evening wears on, but it won’t rain. Maximum temperature is again 16°C.
The forecast for Wednesday
Wednesday will be duller. We don’t expect to see any sunshine until the evening when the sunny intervals will start again. Temperatures should peak at around 15°C in the afternoon.
The forecast for Thursday
Thursday, July 1 is predicted by the Met Office to be very similar to Wednesday here in Sunderland. It’s expected to be overcast until around 1pm when we are expecting sunny intervals again. They are expected to last until late evening when it will cloud over again. The maximum temperature should be about 15°C in the afternoon.
The forecast for Friday
The not-bad but unremarkable weather is set to continue as we head for the weekend with temperatures no more than 17°C again on Friday, when there will be yet more sunny intervals. The evening will see the best of the weather.
