On Tuesday, temperatures are predicted to soar to around 26 C in most parts of Yorkshire - although it will remain cooler in coastal areas.

Wednesday is set to be even hotter in some parts of the region, with the mercury set to inch up to 27 C, coupled with clear blue skies.

Thursday is also forecast to be “warm or very warm,” although the weather will begin to break, with a chance of thundery showers.

Towards the end of the week, Yorkshire can expect more unsettled conditions. However, periods of dry, sunny weather are still a possibility.
