Don't rush to get out the deck chairs just yet.
It seems there is no real sign of a prolonged taste of summer in Huddersfield.
Weatherman Paul Stevens is predicting several more days of changeable weather and although temperatures may rise to 70°F there will always be the chance of rain.
But looking further ahead, the Huddersfield meteorologist said: “There is a good chance that we could see some long, hot and dry spells come August.
“That looks set to be the best part of the summer.”
His forecast came after a wetter and colder June than normal.
Temperatures for the month averaged 12.65°C, compared to the usual 13.35°C. And there was far more rainfall, with 97mm compared to the June average of 65mm
“Looking ahead the rest of this week does look a little better but not great.
“Wednesday could be good bit warmer, with the chance we could hit 21°C or the magic 70°F, but there will be cloud about.
“Thursday will feel humid with a good chance of rain and Friday will again be changeable.
“Looking ahead to the weekend and into next week, it seems likely low pressure out in the Atlantic will dominate and that could well bring some stormy weather, with strong winds and heavy rain.
“I think we have to look into August to see the hot air from the Azores starting to dominate our weather and it could well be the best month of the year.”
