Yorkshire enjoyed a springtime sizzler on Monday, with temperatures rising above 23C, but forecasters have warned the heatwave may be about to come to an end.

Spring finally announced itself across Yorkshire and the north with two days of stunning sunshine on Sunday and Monday, with temperatures exceeding 24C in our county.

However, we have been told to expect cooler temperatures as the week continues, with a relatively chilly 12C high forecast for Bridlington and Whitby on Tuesday.

The Met Office is also predicting rain, which could become heavy in places. However, Yorkshire should avoid the downpours predicted for the midlands.

Expect highs on Tuesday of 15C in Hull, 18C in York and Leeds and 16C in Sheffield.

A Met Office spokesperson said: "Most places will be warm and dry, but generally cloudier than Monday.

"Expect a few showers at times, these mainly across the south and occasionally heavy."
