The current time frame for colder conditions will come Sunday, February 25 until Tuesday, March 5 with the Met Office claiming any colder weather may come towards the end of this period.

The forecast reads: "A generally unsettled pattern is most likely to continue through to early March bringing spells of rain across all areas at times, wettest in the west and northwest, where it'll be windy too at times.

"Temperatures generally around average though some short-lived colder interludes are possible, these more likely in the north which may allow some sleet or snow to fall to lower levels at times."

The North East is yet to see any prominent snowfall in 2024, although the winter saw a large amount of snow settle at the start of December.

The remainder of this week will see the same mild temperatures the region saw over the weekend with highs of 12°C on Wednesday. Cooler temperatures are expected to return by the end of the week however, with highs of only 7°C over Saturday and Sunday.
