In Leeds, the rain starts 6am Saturday and then moves to heavy rain from 9am through to 9pm - 12 hours of downpours.

On Sunday, a cloudy start will give way to bursts of rain, although it will be less wet than Saturday.

Temperatures will only peak at about 22 degrees C - much cooler than things have been this week.

In Sheffield, it's a very similar picture - heavy rain will start a little earlier on Saturday though, with the worst of the conditions hitting from 7am through the entire day to 4pm, followed by another heavy rain shower at 9pm.
