Weekend weather forecast as Yorkshire embraces socialising outdoors

Yorkshire's al fresco diners and drinkers will enjoy sunny spells across the weekend, but temperatures are set to cool off from Friday night.

Whitby in the fine weather this week.

With socialising currently only permitted in the great outdoors, all eyes are on the weekend forecast following a week of glorious sunshine across Yorkshire.

Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that the warmer temperatures we've been enjoying this week are set to last.

After hitting a maximum temperature of 17 C on Friday, the mercury is expected to plummet to a minimum of 0 C during the night, according to the Met Office. This will mark the beginning of a slightly cooler spell of weather.

Saturday will start off cloudy, as cooler air spreads westward throughout the day.

However, the day certainly won't be a write-off, with bright and sunny spells throughout the afternoon and a maximum high of 13 C. Vitally for those with outdoor plans, the day is expected to remain dry.

Sunny spells are predicted to continue throughout Sunday, although the temperature will remain cooler and intermittent cloud coverage is likely, particularly in coastal areas.

While rain is not anticipated on Sunday, there may be some April showers on Monday and Tuesday.
