Wet and thundery weather is expected across Yorkshire this week with temperatures set to remain cooler.

According to the Met Office, today will see sunny spells through the morning before this fine weather gives way to showers later on. These are then set to ease later on.

The Met Office said: "Fine at first, with sunny spells eventually joined by a risk of a few sharp showers inland for a time, with these easing later. Light winds. Maximum temperature 21C."

Tomorrow and later in the week however, the weather is set to take a turn for the worst, with "unseasonably cool" temperatures and unsettled conditions. There is also a risk of thundery showers in this period.

The Met Office added: "Unseasonably cool and unsettled through this period, with Tuesday cloudy and wet, ahead of a risk of widespread thundery showers midweek. Probably gradually becoming drier through Thursday."

However, in the longer tern, the weather should be drier with pleasant temperatures around average for this time of year. In their long-range forecast for the period between July 12 and July 21, the Met Office added: "Many areas should start this period mostly dry as a ridge of high pressure dominates the UK.

"It should feel pleasant enough in mostly light winds and sunshine, with temperatures generally near average, but some rural areas could experience chilly nights. However there is also a chance that rain may fringe into easternmost and southwesternmost areas at times.

"Then a transition to more generally changeable conditions looks most likely, though with a northwest-southeast split in fortunes. Northwestern areas will probably see more in the way of cloud and rain, whereas southeastern parts stand a better chance of longer periods of drier and at times, somewhat warmer weather. However, some rain may extend further southeast across all parts of the UK from time to time."
