It's set to be a warm day in Leeds on Tuesday.

Temperatures are set to drop to around 11C on Wednesday and stay thereabouts over the Easter weekend.

The BBC weather outlook said: "Monday will be drier but it will continue mainly cloudy and there will still be the chance of a few showers or spells of rain, especially in the morning.

"It will continue windy and it will be mild. High pressure will then move in for Tuesday, bringing a very mild day with plenty of sunshine and only gentle winds.

"However, Wednesday may turn cloudier and cooler from the north."

Nick Silkstone, a Deputy Chief Meteorologist at the Met Office, said: “From the middle of next week, once again, we expect to see a change in the weather.

"Although there are still some uncertainties in the outlook there are signs a high-pressure system could develop by the end of next week allowing cold air from the north to return across the UK bringing another dip in temperatures for Easter weekend and even a risk of some wintry showers in the northeast.”
