YORKSHIRE is set fair for an Indian summer this weekend, with light winds and temperatures in the mid-teens.

Forecasters say most places in the region should feel pleasant in the light winds and good sunny spells.

Dry conditions are likely to prevail through next week and into the following week, particularly for central and southern areas, but occasional bouts of rain and windier conditions may affect northern parts at times.

But an ‘Indian Summer’ is unlikely, with temperatures are likely to be near normal for most part, perhaps warm at times.

Some chilly nights are possible with a risk of local frosts, and an increasing risk of fog patches developing overnight, which could be slow to clear during the mornings.

The Weather Network prediction for October and November: “It is expected to become particularly unsettled thanks to a strengthening jet stream.

“The jetstream usually strengthens going into October, bringing the UK its typical wet and windy autumnal weather.

“However, the pattern of sea surface temperatures out in the North Atlantic at the moment favours a particularly strong jet stream to develop through the autumn.

“As such, frequent spells of wet and windy weather are likely to affect the UK through October and November as deep areas of low pressure are steered close to the country by the jetstream.

“Temperatures will generally be around or slightly below average through autumn as a whole, again thanks to the cooler than sea temperatures out in the Atlantic.”
