And sadly it doesn't like it will get better any time soon. Scattered showers are expected through the rest of today, with the risk of lightning in some parts of the North East.

There should be some sunshine in between the showers, but staying fairly cool with fresh or strong westerly winds. The maximum temperature is expected to be 16 °C.

Met Office forecasters say the showers will lessen through the evening and with clear spells across the North East overnight - but the showers are set to return on Sunday, when it will be breezy but a little warmer.
