These are all the shops which the Government says can reopen from June 15

But the run-up to the weekend will be mild too with forecasters expecting temperatures to be around 15°C or 16°C with sunny intervals.

In a round-up, the Met Office said: “Generally dry and settled weather through to the weekend with some long sunny spells, although sunshine rather hazy at times.

“Warm or very warm inland, but cooler around the coast.”

The Met Office predicts warm weather throughout what would have been the spring half-term break.

Forecasters add that the pollen count in South Shields is expected to be low throughout this week, so that’s a bit of extra good news too!

Moving forward to next week – a time which could see children in Reception classes, Year 1 and Year 6 return to the classroom from Monday, June 1 – the weather is expected to stay generally dry and warm, but with a risk of thunderstorms in some areas.
