A blast of Arctic air has seen temperatures plummet across Kirklees today.

And the cold spell is likely to last through the weekend, with the possibility of frost on Saturday night, in stark contrast to last weekend when temperatures nudged up to the mid 70s in Huddersfield.

But sun-seekers might be in for a treat as we head towards the Bank Holiday weekend at the end of May.

Huddersfield weatherman Paul Stevens said there are early signs that high pressure could build by the end of the month, bringing a possible heatwave.

He said: “It has certainly turned colder today. A weak cold front has brought a much colder Arctic air stream behind it.

“It means temperatures are well down on where they were last week, and that is likely to be the case through the weekend and into early next week.

“But it’s not too bad. There might be the odd shower but it will be largely dry, and in the sunshine it will still feel quite nice.

“But when there is cloud it will start to feel chilly and it will be cold at night.”

He said the temperatures will pick up and return to normal next week.

“It will be cloudy with some rain and showers around, but the temperatures will be normal for this time of year.

“Then as we move towards the Bank Holiday weekend at the end of the month there are signs that high pressure could start to build over Europe.

“If that happens things could start to get a good deal warmer, and we could be in for a very hot spell.”
