Early hours snow shower predicted for Northumberland with temperature to feel as low as -3C
It may well be spring, but we’re set to see yet more snow showers according to the latest forecast from the Met Office.
After the region saw flurries and frosts through this week, yet more cold weather is on the way.
This is what we can expect in the days ahead.
What will it be like later on today, Saturday, April 10?
Tonight is likely to see showers die out inland in the region, leaving clear skies and a cold frosty night.
Near the coast, wintry showers may continue overnight.
The temperature is likely to be around 5C, dropping to 1C during the evening, but it will feel as cold as -2C during the evening.
County’s weather forecast fairer than the rest of the region for Sunday, April 11
The Met Office says wintry showers will fall along the east coast at first, becoming more widespread inland during the afternoon, and turning heavy at times over high ground.
Compared to the rest of the region, Northumberland looks to escape most of the wintry weather, but it is due a snow shower at 2am, when it will feel as cold as -3C.
It is due to be cloudy tomorrow, with sunny intervals in the evening, with the temperature expected to stay around 2C, but feel as cold as -2C during the evening.
Further frost expected as darkness falls at the end of the weekend
It will be cold and frosty overnight, with the lowest temperature dropping to 0C falling to -1C as Monday begins, but it could feel as cold as -5C overnight.
What about the week ahead?
It will feel milder from Monday, April 12 with prolonged sunny spells.
It’s set to be cloudier again on Tuesday, April 13 with possible showers, particularly in the west before returning to brighter conditions on Wednesday, April 14.
The long range forecast from Thursday, April 15, to towards next weekend is it will start off with mainly settled conditions, but rain showers may spread erratically from the west at times.
The heaviest and most prolonged rain, as well as the strongest winds, are most likely for western and north-western areas, with eastern areas likely remaining drier and brighter.
