Here’s what the forecast looks like for Yorkshire for the rest of the week.
Wednesday (24 June)
The Met Office forecast reports that on Wednesday 24 June Yorkshire will be “Dry and bright with long periods of unbroken sunshine”.
Temperatures will be very warm or hot with highs of 29 °C, but bit breezier and cooler on the coast later on in the day.
This will be followed by a “dry night with plenty of evening sunshine across the region” with a minimum temperature of 15 °C throughout the night.
Thursday (25 June)
The Met Office reports that Thursday will be mainly hot and sunny however, early in the morning thunderstorms may be possible:
“Another very warm or hot day with plenty of sunshine on Thursday. Still a little breezy and cooler along the coast though, the wind spreading inland during the evening.
“Maximum temperature 28 °C” a statement on their site reads.
Friday (26 June) - Saturday (27 June)
Friday will be very warm or hot across the region and will start sunny. However, there will be heavy and thundery showers later on.
This will continue into the day on Saturday, with further heavy showers.
What has caused the high temperatures?
Explaining the cause of the upcoming “heatwave conditions”, Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Dan Suri said: “We quite often see warm, southerly air from the continent bringing these high temperatures to the UK in summer.
“However this week, the air across the UK has arrived from the Atlantic.
“This Atlantic air will descend and warm up as it moves across the UK and this in combination with clear skies and strong late-June sunshine, we’re seeing temperatures rise.”
Warning of warm nights ahead
In addition to the high temperatures in the day for the rest of the week, Yorkshire will also experience hot nights along with the rest of England.
Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Dan Suri said: “In addition to the warm days we are going to see some warm nights this week as temperatures overnight remain in the mid-high teens across England and Wales.”
