The warm weather will make a welcome return this weekend - and next week!

We have been teased with a few days of tropical temperatures here and there, the Bank Holiday weekend being a particular highlight, but just as we’re wearing in our sandals and flip flops, a downpour of rain and chillier weather strikes, forcing the jumpers and coats back out of the wardrobe.

But there is good news on the horizon for Wakefield. The temperature is set to rise over the weekend, making it significantly warmer than we have experienced in the last few days, reaching its peak on Monday.

Couple that with prolonged sunny spells that experts are predicting and it sounds like the region is going to experience a decent weekend weather-wise.

What the Met Office says about Friday:

“After another cold start, a warmer day with only fair weather cloud developing, and winds remaining light. Sunshine may turn hazy as high level cloud increases from the northwest later. Maximum temperature 19 °C.”

Saturday: The high on Saturday will be around 19C, which should feel significantly warmer than anything experienced since last weekend. The hottest part of the day will be in the mid-afternoon after once again starting off sunny before clouding over.

Sunday: The warmest day of the weekend with highs of a whopping 20C predicted in the county. The day will follow the pattern of the previous two with sunny spells earlier before cloud covers through the afternoon.

Monday is set to be another fine and sunny day with temperatures reaching 21C with it staying a lovely 20C on Tuesday and 19C on Wednesday.
