Yorkshire weather: Mix of heavy rain and high pollen will cause misery this weekend

After a baking Bank Holiday, we're set for a more traditional spring weekend in Yorkshire with rain showers, clouds and cooler temperatures.

A mix of high pollen and rain will make for a strange weekend in Yorkshire.

The county enjoyed temperatures over 25C last week forecasters expect to see a 10C drop this Saturday and Sunday as thermometers struggle to record figures in the teens - and it could be as low as 4C overnight.

And to make matters worse, a high pollen count is expected to bring misery for those with hay fever and asthma.
