Warm sunshine will dominate throughout today with temperatures peaking at around 24C this afternoon.

Despite a slight blip in the weather on Thursday and Friday the hot and sunny weather will return to Leeds on Saturday.

Tomorrow temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than today and there will be a lot more cloud around.

Friday will follow a very similar theme with lots of cloud and temperatures peaking at 19C. Saturday will see a return to wall-to-wall sunshine with temperatures reaching 23C and Sunday will be a notch warmer at 24C.

And the heatwave looks set to last into early next week with Leeds basking in temperatures of 25C on Monday.
