Heatwave set to continue in Yorkshire – what to expect


share close

The half-term heatwave is set to continue throughout Yorkshire next week, forecasters predict.

Temperatures will stay in the 20s throughout the region – with Leeds, York and Sheffield enjoying highs of 23C by Thursday, according to the Met Office.

The continued heatwave will be welcome news after an unusually cold and wet May.

“Heavy showers, which normally characterize April, more than made up for their earlier absence during May,” said Met Office official Mike Kendon.

“As well as the rain, the cooler than average temperatures have been notable, with maximum temperatures having been particularly suppressed, often struggling to reach the high teens Celsius.”

But there will be fewer chances to sunbathe as cloudy spells are set to plague the coming days.

Here’s the forecast for the week where you are.

Sheffield will have consistently warm weather throughout the week, with the mercury hovering at 22C on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday – though cloudy spells are expected.

After a high of 23C on Thursday, the temperature will stay at 22C on Friday and Saturday.


Leeds is also set for another warm week, with temperatures heating from 21C on Monday to 23C on Thursday, before falling slightly to 20C on Friday and Saturday.

Again, intermittent cloudy and sunny spells are expected in the city, though Friday and Saturday will be consistently cloudy.


It will be a similar story in York, where temperatures will range from 21C on Monday up to 23C on Thursday, then back down to 22C by Saturday.

Light showers are expected on Monday evening in the city, but no wet weather is expected after that – again, a mix of sunshine and clouds are predicted.


Things will be slightly cooler in Huddersfield, with temperatures at 20C on Monday before peaking at 22C on Thursday.

Light rain is also predicted for tomorrow, while the rest of the week will be marked with sunny intervals.


Bradford will have an overcast start tomorrow before the sun emerges, heating temperatures up to 20C.

Three straight days of 22C heat from Tuesday will be followed by a slightly cooler Friday and Saturday, though temperatures will remain in the 20s.

Again, a mix of cloudy and sunny spells are expected.
