West Yorkshire set for mini-heatwave, temperatures could hit 29C
Britain will be baking in heatwave conditions this week with temperatures expected to be at their highest on Wednesday, says the Met Office.
A level two-heat health warning was issued earlier this week as overnight temperatures were looking set to soar.
On Wednesday, areas such as Bradford, Huddersfield and Brighouse are all expected to see highs of 28C.
Leeds, Wakefield and Dewsbury are expected to hit 29C.
Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Laura Paterson, said: “Both Tuesday and Wednesday nights are expected to be warm and humid temperatures remaining in the high teens in many places, possibly low 20s Celsius in parts of southeast England.
“The very warm air means there is a risk of us seeing thunderstorms on Wednesday or Thursday but the exact timing and location of those storms, if they happen, is uncertain at the moment.”
The Met Office has also issued a yellow warning of rain in the Yorkshire and Humber region tomorrow with isolated heavy rain, and possibly severe thunderstorms expected to develop late afternoon across parts of Northern England and Southern Scotland.
