That's early to have them out though, another 10-14 days or so inside here is the norm
The drying winds today have made a big difference already.
 

The 'farmer' who bought the land from the coal board is from London and only visits when introducing new animals to the heard so has no idea of our seasons. The field grass is in no state of growing yet but I think he realised over his Easter visit that opening the shed was a bad idea with all the waterlogged fields.

Day of contrasts. Left Beadnell at 1:45 sunny but only 13.5 degrees, wind was onshore from south east, drove one mile inland car showing 21 degrees and then 25 degrees when I arrived back in Newcastle.

I had 26.2C in Gilesgate, Durham this afternoon, but not confident in it. Anyone else near Durham get anywhere near this?

23.0C here with VP2 and FARS.
In 2011 recorded 23.2C on the 25th but that was before FARS was fitted.

A very pleasant 24C near Consett, a big improvement on the last couple of let down days. A fantastic sunset and clear skies out there which is something of a rarity over the last few months. The fields are still very muddy so don't expect them to dry out before the breakdown but it's a start and good weather for gardening and outdoor painting.

Fingers xd we don't have to wait too many weeks for something a bit more substantial and longer lasting.

Thunderstorm warning issued 

Darlington

Durham

Gateshead

Hartlepool

Middlesbrough

Newcastle upon Tyne

North Tyneside

Northumberland

Redcar and Cleveland

South Tyneside

Stockton-on-Tees

Sunderland

4pm to 3am

What to expect

  • Some flooding of a few homes and businesses likely, leading to some damage to buildings or structures.
  • Possibly some damage to a few buildings and structures from lightning strikes with some short term loss of power and other services.
  • There is a good chance driving conditions will be affected by spray, standing water and/or hail, leading to longer journey times by car and bus. Delays to train services are possible.

Thunderstorms are expected to start breaking out from late Saturday afternoon over North Wales and will then become more widespread over northern England on Saturday evening. These will move northeastwards overnight, clearing during the early hours of Sunday. Whilst some places will miss these storms and remain dry, where they do occur some heavy rain and lightning is anticipated and in a few places there may also be hail and/or gusty winds. 15-20 mm rain may fall in a relatively short space of time with a few spots seeing close to 30 mm of rain.

It is a beautiful evening still 17 degrees clear skies, looking at the radar I think things are now starting to kick off hopefully some lovely light displays later, also really looking forward to the championship on channel 5 at 9pm :D
