A yellow warning for thunderstorms was issued for the County Durham area between Wednesday and Friday morning, and that warning remained in place for central, southern and eastern parts of England on Friday.
However, the North East is expected to stay mostly dry with sunny spells, though with plenty of cloud around.
Temperatures from Friday to Sunday will hover between 12C and 16C, and there may be some rain overnight and during the day.
