It's going to be a sunny Mothers' Day with temperatures rising quickly after a frosty start.

Temperatures will be in the mid-teens but things will feel much warmer in the sunshine.

The Met Office is forecasting another chilly night but things should stay above freezing.

And Monday should provide more bright weather before showers arrive later in the week.

Here is the full Met Office forecast for Yorkshire:


Early shallow fog patches in the Vale of York will clear quickly leaving another dry and sunny day. A light onshore breeze will take the edge off temperatures near the coast, but still warm inland. Maximum temperature 14C.


After a clear evening cloud may increase from the southeast after midnight, though it will stay dry with light winds. Minimum temperature 5C.


More cloud on Monday than over the weekend, but still plenty of dry bright weather, with some sunny spells. Moderate onshore breeze again taking the edge off temperatures. Maximum temperature 11C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Cloudy at times with the odd shower interspersed with some drier brighter periods. Turning quite breezy. Possibility of a more organised band of rain late Thursday. Temperatures slightly above average.
