As coronavirus lockdown rules were further eased across the country this week, we saw a break in the hot and sunny weather with cooler days and downpours of rain.

Looking at the predictions for the week ahead from the Met Office, will Northumberland see a return of the sun next week?

Forecasters say there are heavy and blustery showers ahead as we move into a new week across the county – but it’s not all bad news, with a chance of some bright and sunny spells breaking through.

The Met Office added: “Dry with sunny spells and light winds on Monday and Tuesday, before rain returns on Wednesday alongside strengthening winds.”

Recent cooler temperatures and rainy showers over the previous days follow weeks of scorching sunshine and unseasonably warm weather.

The Met Office confirmed that this spring has been the sunniest on record for the UK and all the home nations – and the driest May on record in England.

Figures show that there were 266 hours of sunshine across the entire month.
