Leeds Heatwave: When the hottest day of the year will hit Leeds this week
A sizzling forecast lies ahead for Leeds this weekend, as a heatwave is predicted to clear out the rain.
The Met Office is predicting the hottest day of the year so far for Leeds - a stonking 27 degrees C.
The forecast shows that the rain will clear from Wednesday evening, with warmer weather predicted as of Thursday morning.
On Thursday, strong sunshine is predicted all day, with highs of 21 degrees C.
But it's Saturday when the sunshine will really hit home, with temperatures hitting a heatwave-level of 27 degrees Celsius.
Sunshine will start at 10am on Saturday and stay bright and warm until 7pm - so Saturday might be the day to whip the BBQ out.
Sunday will be a milder 20 degrees.
Those with hayfever are being warned that pollen levels will also be HIGH.
