HARTLEPOOL is in for warm and sticky weather on Monday and for the rest of the week.
Weather experts were predicting that the town would be blessed with blue skies on Monday and a scattering of light white cloud.
Thermometers were due to reach highs of 18C with a cooling breeze of 10mph.
The cloudy blanket was expected to spread and hang around over Hartlepool into tomorrow, but the temperature is expected to rise a notch to 19C and the wind lower to just 8mph - making for a clammy and close day.
Wednesday and Thursday should see a similar picture with white clouds and temperatures around 19C. Wind speed should be between 8mph and 9mph.
