There’s some good news if you’re planning on hosting a World Cup barbecue this weekend!

After a week that has seen only glimpses of sunshine across the North East, South Tyneside looks set to be draped in sunshine over the next few days - with a mini-heatwave said to be on its way next week.

And with England’s second World Cup game taking place on Sunday, it’s the perfect excuse to crack out the barbecue and get your friends round!

Or if football isn’t your thing, there will be plenty of opportunities to get out and soak up the sunlight.

Here’s the forecast for the next few days in South Tyneside:

FRIDAY

The weekend looks set to start off fine and dry, with temperatures only set to go up.

Expect spells of sunshine throughout the day with clouds forming later on in the day, while temperatures will reach 15 °C.

And temperatures are set to remain as high as 13 °C into the evening - perfect if you’re planning on heading out.

SATURDAY

Although the sun won’t beam down as heavily as it did on Friday, temperatures look set to rise on Saturday.

Highs of 17 °C are forecast in a day where it will once again remain dry - albeit a little cloudy.

With the weather not uncomfortably hot, it’s the perfect day to head out and soak up the local sights.

SUNDAY

The best day of the lot - and one which looks set to start a mini-heatwave across the country.

Temperatures will reach up to 20 °C with the sun set to beam down on South Tyneside throughout the day.

No rain is expected and, with very little cloud coverage predicted, it looks to be a beautiful day in South Shields.

So crack out the barbecue and get your friends out to soak up the sunshine and cheer on England against Panama in a 1pm kick-off.
