Warmer weather and sunnier conditions are on their way to Yorkshire following weeks of cold and rain.

The last few weeks have seen cloudy weather mixed in with showers and thunderstorms, but temperatures are looking to get warmer in the coming days. According to the Met Office, the remainder of this week is due to be "fine, dry and warm" although there may be more showers over the weekend.

Temperatures are also expected to reach above 20C this week. For today, they said: "Another fine, dry and warm day. Likely cloudier at times with sunshine hazier, particularly into the evening. Maximum temperature 21C."

The weekend is set to see much of the same, with the Met Office adding: "Sunny spells and dry conditions lasting through Friday. Turning cloudier overnight into Saturday with the chance of some showers but drier once again by Sunday. Temperatures remaining warm."

Meanwhile, in the longer term, the weather is set to move towards "fine and settled" conditions, with the temperature turning "warmer than we have seen in recent weeks". While some rain is to be expected, much of the period will be warmer.

The Met Office said: "Predominantly fine and settled through the period and for much of the country turning much warmer than we have seen in recent weeks. At first some thicker cloud could bring some outbreaks of mostly light rain, this mainly affecting northwestern areas.

"However for most it will be dry throughout, and likely to turn increasingly warm as we move into next week. There is a chance that this could persist for much of the rest of the period, turning increasingly hot, however by the latter part of next week we see a large range of outcomes, some of which allow for a return of temperatures closer to average.

"However the trend toward much warmer conditions continuing through next week is preferred."
