Make the most of the current sunny spell - it’s not likely to last.

That was the forecast from Huddersfield weather expert Paul Stevens as the Easter holiday weekend looms.

He thinks Huddersfield will see a return to cloudier, cooler and wetter weather over the weekend, after several days of warm sunshine and dry weather.

And he admits there is no sign yet of the “summer sizzler” that some have been predicting.

Huddersfield has enjoyed three good days of sunshine but the temperatures have remained about average.

Mr Stevens said: “The sun has been quite strong and it has seen temperatures up at about 13°or 14° which is about average for this time of year.

“But we have also seen some frosts at night and on Monday, temperatures in some areas of Huddersfield were down to freezing, which is not good news for gardeners.

“Today should stay relatively dry and bright but as we head into Thursday and then Friday, things start to change.

“We look as if we are to get cloud and rain coming in from the north-west and Good Friday looks set to stay fairly cloudy with a chance of rain. Temperatures then will not get much above 10° or 11°.

“Saturday and Sunday will again bring a mixed bag of weather, with some dry sunny spells but also a growing chance of cloud.

“By the time we reach Easter Monday there could well be prolonged spells of rain, some of which could be on the heavy side.

“It’s not a brilliant forecast and all those who were expecting an early-summer sizzler are wrong.

“This mixed weather looks set to stay with us until well into May and I cannot see any sign of a prolonged warm and dry spell”.

Still it's better than Easter last year. In the run up to Sunday March 31, 2013, there was lots of snow.
