A Flood Warning has been issued by the Environment Agency for the Tyne estuary at North Shields, South Shields and Howdon Pans and immediate action required.
Waves are forecast to overtop sea defences with sea spray expected on the Tyne Estuary at North Shields, South Shields and Howdon Pans as a result of high spring tides and strong winds.
Tides will be at their highest between 4.45pm and 6.30pm on Monday, January 13. These conditions may apply two or four hours either side of high tide.
Roads, farmlands and properties are expected to be subjected to flooding during this time.
