The weather warning comes into force at 9am on today (Tuesday, December 7) and is set to last right throughout the day until it expires at 11.59pm.

Forecasters have issued the yellow weather warning as the region continues to recover from Storm Arwen - which lashed the UK with winds of close to 100mph.

The Met Office say they are not expecting winds to be as heavy as what the North East experienced on Friday, November 27 and Saturday, November 28, but the strong winds could still cause some disruption.
