The weather in Leeds this year has been topsy-turvy, with the summer’s heatwave preceded by one of the coldest winters in years due to the Beast from the East.
This summer saw Leeds enjoy its biggest heatwave in years and summer is now returning to give us one last blast this week.
Leeds is set to experience some unseasonably warm weather this week, as temperatures begin to climb.
Today and tomorrow will see temperatures begin to increase, with Leeds basking in unseasonably warm weather by Thursday.
Tuesday and Wednesday will see temperatures of 16/17C, before Thursday reaches a peak temperature of 19C, which will be as warm as global hotspot Madrid.
Leeds will then stay warm for the time of year for the rest of the week, with temperatures easing off slightly to 17C on Friday, but returning to 19C by Saturday.
Although it is set to be mainly cloudy in Leeds this week, temperatures will still be warmer than usual, seeing a considerable rise from last week.
Looking ahead, there is an increasing chance that the weather towards the end of October will turn more settled as high pressure re-establishes, according to the Met Office. This would bring lighter winds and some sunshine by day but cold nights with frost and fog.
As the UK heads towards the start of November, confidence is lower but there are signs it may turn more changeable again.
Temperatures will probably be close to normal overall, but in more settled weather it is likely to be colder than average, especially overnight.
