Met Office forecasters have issued a range of Yellow warnings for thunderstorms, covering various areas of Scotland and England.
But how is the North East going to fare with the latest forecast?
Heavy rain is forecast for parts of the region on Wednesday, July 31 – but if the current weather report is correct, it looks like much of the North East will escape the worst of this latest bout of thunder and lightning.
Wednesday and Thursday, August 1 will be wet but mild days across the North East with temperatures of up to 18°C.
If you’re heading out, it will be best to pack a rain jacket with the heaviest showers forecast between 7am and 10am on Wednesday.
For those elsewhere in the country, there could be localised flooding, lightning strikes and delays to travel.
