It's going to get even hotter in Leeds.

Thursday and Friday are set to be a little cloudier, but still warm.

Then on Saturday, highs of 24C are forecast, with the mercury set to hit 25C on Sunday, just in time for England's first Euro 2020 group game against Croatia at 2pm.

It's then set to stay sunny and warm from Monday until Thursday the following week - but rain is expected on the Friday and Saturday.

According to the Met Office's UK long range weather forecast Saturday June 12 to Monday June 21: "High pressure is likely to bring a lot of dry and settled weather across the country at first.

"The exception is across the far northwest where occasional spells of cloud and rain accompanied by stronger winds are likely.

"Temperatures here are expected to be near normal but elsewhere it is expected to be very warm perhaps hot for a time.

"As we head into the second half of next week, there are signs that less settled conditions could extend to other parts of the country with temperatures returning to nearer normal by the end of the week.

"This change is likely to be accompanied by a spell of rain, potentially thundery in places, and some stronger winds than of late."

The Met Office's long range forecast for Monday June 21 to Monday July 5 states: "A good deal of fine and dry weather across much of the UK for the end of June, although there could be a few showers in places and perhaps some rain in the far north at times.

"Temperatures are likely to be above average.

"By the end of June and into early July, conditions will probably become more unsettled with an increasing chance of rain spreading across the UK."
