Thousands of people are expected to head outdoors this weekend to pick up a Christmas tree.

And they'll need to make sure to pick up a coat as the unseasonably mild weather is set to come to an abrupt end over the next couple of days.

Temperatures are expected to fall back down to around 4C tonight after peaking at 14C in Leeds during today.

There could also be a few showers over the weekend before hill fog arrives at the start of next week.
