Have your say

Hands up who's gazing longingly out of their office window, wishing you could ditch that spreadsheet or conference call and head into the Yorkshire sunshine?

Sadly there's not much we can do about the 9-5 - but the good news is this delightful spell of sunshine is set to continue into the weekend and beyond.

That means stock up on the barbecues and ice buckets now for fun in the sun on your weekend off.

Today is set to be another day of unbroken sunshine, with temperatures peaking at a not-too-shabby 26C.

And the hot weather doesn't stop there, with back-to-back sunshine forecast all the way through to next Monday.

Here's what the Met Office is saying about today's UK weather:

"Another day of unbroken sunshine for many allowing it to become hot, with the highest temperatures likely in the west. Cloud will affect northern Scotland at times and some eastern coasts may be misty. Fresher around coasts with sea breezes."

And for tomorrow:

"Mist and low cloud will clear quickly, leaving another hot day with unbroken sunshine. Highest temperatures are most likely in the west, whilst cooler around coasts, particularly in the east."
