Today could see highs of up to 34C in some parts of the country, particularly in the south and south east.

What will the weather be like in Leeds over the coming week?

But will the "Mediterranean melt" visit Yorkshire?

Well, not really.

Although it is set to continue being warm and dry for the majority, a high of 28C is predicted in our region by the experts at the Met Office.

That is set to come on Friday, when there will also be the chance of some scattered showers.

Until then, we see the temperature gradually rising throughout the week, but a fair dose of cloud is also on the cards.

Today (Monday), we are set for sunny intervals and highs of around 26C in the mid-afternoon.

And that's the story for the majority of the week,until we hit those highs of 28C on Friday.
