Spring­like scenes as ‘much-needed warmth and sun­shine’ is on its way

Yorkshire Post - - NEWS -

IT IS a quintessen­tially spring­like scene, daf­fodils in bloom in the grounds of Tem­ple Newsam in Leeds.

And while it may not feel par­tic­u­larly spring­like to­day, with gusts of wind up to 40mph blow­ing across York­shire, the weather is about to take a turn for the bet­ter, with the hottest day of the year due this week.

Me­teogroup fore­caster Paul Knight­ley told The York­shire

Post: “There won’t be much rain around on Tues­day – al­though west­ern parts of the county to­wards the Pen­nines could see some driz­zle. Ev­ery­where will be mostly cloudy and par­tic­u­larly windy, with southerly winds of up to 35 to 45 miles per hour be­ing very no­tice­able.”

While the tem­per­a­ture is set to hit be­tween 14 and 17 de­grees to­day, it will “feel much chill­ier” due to the wind. Wed­nes­day will see a brighter out­look, with sun­shine com­ing through early cloud and spikes of 19 to 21 de­grees in Leeds and York, and a south-east­erly breeze mak­ing it chill­ier in the coast. Scar­bor­ough should see around 14 de­grees.

“Thurs­day should stay dry with more sun­shine and the tem­per­a­ture creep­ing up, to 22 to 23 de­grees in the Vale of York,” he said. “It will be quite a dif­fer­ence to ear­lier in the week, and fi­nally feel­ing like spring. On Fri­day the tem­per­a­ture will come down a peg or two, but there is a much-needed bit of warmth and sun­shine on the way.”

PIC­TURE: SI­MON HULME.

SET FAIR: Walk­ers stroll through the daf­fodils at Tem­ple Newsam, Leeds, yes­ter­day.
