MORE extreme weather is on its way for the rest of the week as the Met Office has issued warnings for the North-East and North Yorkshire until Sunday.

Today, a number of weather warnings across County Durham, Tyne and Wear, Northumberland, Teesside and North Yorkshire have been issued by the Met Office.

Beginning on Friday (February 28), heavy rain is forecast to fall in parts of County Durham including Barnard Castle, Stanhope, Teesdale and in the Yorkshire Dales, between 12pm and 9am.

Blighting the entire North of England from 12pm on Saturday (February 29), a Yellow weather warning for strong wind is valid until 12pm the following day.

As a result, the Met Office is warning that delays are likely to road, rail and air transport, including restrictions to high-sided vehicles on exposed routes. 

It also said it was "likely" that coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities could be affected by spray or large waves as wind speeds increase.

Earlier this week, snow fell across the region causing severe disruption to transport on roads and rail services. 

 At the time, the Environment Agency warned people to take extra care when travelling in what were described as 'worsening conditions.'
