It may now be July however the weather in Yorkshire this week certainly won’t make it feel that way.

While Yorkshire has been hit with sunshine and temperatures of up to 25C in recent weeks, any trace of that will be well and truly left in the past as we enter a new month. According to the Met Office , we’re in for a “cloudy'' start to the week with some “rain and drizzle” expected, before showers turn “heavy and blustery” as we head towards the weekend.

The Met Office forecast for Yorkshire on Monday, July 1, is: “Becoming increasingly cloudy after a sunny start, with outbreaks of light rain soon pushing east. No real change in the afternoon but breezy with low cloud and drizzle over hills. Maximum temperature 17 °C.”

And sadly the wet weather is set to stick around throughout the remainder of the week. The Met Office has provided the following weather outlook for Tuesday, July 2 to Thursday, July 4: “Rather cloudy on Tuesday, with perhaps the odd shower. Breezy with rain on Wednesday, prolonged over hills. Sunny spells and blustery showers on Thursday. Temperatures around or below normal.”

From Friday onwards, a period of changeable conditions are expected, alongside occasional showers. Temperatures are expected to be around, or a little below average, for July.

The Met Office long range weather forecast for Friday, July 5 to Sunday, July 14, says: “This period is likely to see a continuation of the changeable conditions, with occasional bands of rain moving in from the west or northwest. There will be a good deal of dry, warm, and settled weather in between frontal systems, with the best conditions most likely in the south and east where winds will be lighter.

“In contrast, further north and west, it will generally be breezier, and any rain that does occur will be heaviest over the hills. Cloud cover will vary, with cloudier weather expected in the north and west, while clearer skies are likely in the south and east. Temperatures will be around or a little below average for the time of year, but on sunnier days with lighter winds, it will still feel warm.”
