THE mini heatwave looked set to continue in Huddersfield today.

THE mini heatwave looked set to continue in Huddersfield today.

But make the most of it as temperatures are likely to fall tomorrow and into the weekend.

There were no complaints yesterday as the town basked in temperatures of 24.6°C – or 75°F easily the hottest day of the year so far.

It was warmer than some Med hotspots including Naples, Malta and Cyprus.

Salendine Nook weather expert Paul Stevens said today we can expect more of the same, although with perhaps more hazy sunshine.

And cooler winds from the east are likely to bring temperatures down to about average for the month from tomorrow.

“It will still be pleasant with lots of sunshine, but certainly cooler than we have had on Tuesday and Wednesday.

“The weekend should stay mainly fine and people will be unlucky if they catch any rain, but looking ahead to the Bank Holiday weekend could see it colder and wetter”.

The hot weather brought workers out on the Piazza in Huddersfield to enjoy a lunchtime ice-cream – and also sent car thermometers crazy.
