But if it does happen, it won't be this weekend.

Here is the Met Office forecast for Leeds this weekend in full:

Friday:

After a cold and frosty start, a largely dry day with sunny spells and a low chance of a rogue shower. Feeling chilly, but offset by sunshine and light winds. Maximum temperature 7 °C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Staying fine this weekend with cold and frosty nights, followed by dry days with some sunshine, especially during the mornings. Largely dry on Monday, but some rain is possible later.

"High pressure is expected to slowly sink southwards during Sunday with settled conditions confined to the far southeast of the UK, as cloud and spells of rain gradually push in from the northwest.

"A trend towards more unsettled conditions widely across the UK is likely through the beginning of next week, with spells of rain and showers spreading in from the west but also with some drier and brighter interludes at times.

"Through this period there is potential for windy conditions with the strongest winds most likely in the west and northwest of the UK. Temperatures are expected to trend from rather cold at first to closer to average, perhaps mild at times in the south."
