In Middlesbrough, the wind is forecast to reach speeds of around 47mph at 1pm tomorrow, with heavy showers through the night changing to light showers during the day and into the afternoon.
Saltburn is expected to see the strongest wind across Teesside, with the Met Office predicting speeds of 49mph around 10am.
A man has been charged in connection with an alleged assault in Middlesbrough.
The 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault after an alleged incident on Aire Street in Middlesbrough on Saturday 27th August.
He's now been charged with possession of an offensive weapon and with Section 18 assault.
He appeared at Teesside Magistrates Court on Saturday - from where he was further remanded until his next court date.

The board wants to improve perceptions and increase pride in Redcar and the rest of the borough and strengthen its culture and leisure offer to draw visitors and residents into the town throughout the year.
Now, a special drop-in event has being organised at Redcar Leisure Centre on Wednesday 5 October, between 10am and 6pm, where people can ask questions of architects, designers and the project team as they talk through the proposals.
There will also be a fixed display in the main library following the drop-in session, opposite the Civic Centre.
