How will the day begin?

Northumberland will have a dry start to the day with warm sunny spells. However, cloud will increase into the afternoon as some showery rain arrives at around 1pm. The rain will become more persistent into the afternoon, with much heavier bursts. Maximum temperature 21 °C.

There is better news for hay fever sufferers though, as pollen levels will change to be medium and remain that way throughout the rest of the day.

Will tonight be any different?

Cloud and showery rain will continue and turn heavy at around 6pm and into the overnight period. Clearer, drier conditions may follow later, and extend across Northumberland. Minimum temperature 13 °C.
