A Met Office warning for heavy rain across the north-east is still in place.
The yellow level warning came into force at midnight and will be in force until 11.59pm tonight.
On Saturday the forecaster downgraded the original warning of thunderstorms and heavy rain, to just heavy rain.
There is a chance the heavy rain may cause some rural communities to be cut off if roads flood and localised powers cuts.
According to the Met Office there is a “small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings”.
A statement on its website added: “There is a small chance of fast flowing or deep floodwater causing danger to life. Where flooding occurs, there is a slight chance of delays or cancellations to train and bus services.
