When will Leeds see rain again?

Well, not unless you're planning a midnight stroll on Wednesday.

There's no sign of rain during daylight hours over the coming days, with the only prediction from the Met Office coming for Wednesday evening at 10pm.

That is set to continue through most of the night and into the early hours of Thursday morning, before a break for most of the morning, although a little light rain could pass over Leeds in the late morning.

Today (Tuesday) should remain dry but cloudy, with highs of around 20C expected.

Of today's forecast, A Met Office spokesperson said: "Most places will have a dry day on Tuesday with some bright or sunny spells.

"Cloudier across the Pennines with possible mist and patchy light rain. Winds westerly, mainly light. Maximum temperature 22 °C."
