Through a mixture of blue skies and sunshine and sunny spells with spouts of cloud throughout, it will be a spring-like week.

It will feel colder later in the evenings though, with lows of around 1C in the early hours of the morning each day.

In Leeds, the sun will set at 8.14pm on Monday, getting two minutes later each night and reaching 8.22pm on Friday, meaning it will be light for longer while eating or drinking outside.
