Huddersfield is set for a burst of summer with temperatures likely to hit the 70° mark over the next 48 hours.

That is warmer than many areas of Spain, Majorca and the south of France.

And even though the hot dry spell may end by the start of next week, the following weekend which sees the Spring Bank holiday could see summer conditions return.

It will come as welcome relief for people in Huddersfield, who have endured a soggy May so far, with rainfall well above average.

Huddersfield weather expert Paul Stevens has recorded 68mm of rain in the first 14 days of the month, compared to an average total of 60mm for the whole of May.

It’s going to be a real burst of summer”, said Mr Stevens, of Salendine Nook.

“We had a lot of cloud yesterday but by today that should have disappeared and we look set for dry, sunny and very warm times through Thursday and Friday.

“The temperatures could well hit 21° Celsius, or 70° F which is very good for the time of year.

“Saturday should see the dry weather continue although it may be a little cooler and by late Sunday there could be some rain coming in on southerly winds.

“Those winds will pick up early next week and the conditions will turn more humid which could mean the chance of a thunderstorm.

“But looking further ahead, the weather will start to pick up through next week and by the time we get top the start of the Spring Bank holiday weekend we could well be back to those temperatures in the 70s.”

The good weather was highlighted in St George’s Square as Kirklees Council officers have switched on the fountains and water feature.

They had been turned off for the winter, because of the risk of the water freezing.
