WEATHER forecasters reckon the unusually hot weather will not last.
Forecasters say by the end of the week, temperatures in Huddersfield will fall to nearer 22ºC (72ºF).
There are also likely to be thunderstorms in some parts of the town today and on Friday.
Nationally, temperatures this week are unlikely to beat the high of 36.3ºC (97.3ºF) recorded last Wednesday at Charlwood, Surrey, which smashed the all-time record British temperature for the month.
It consigned the previous long-standing record of 36ºC (96.8ºF) set at Epsom, Surrey, on July 22, 1911, to the history books.
Tony Conlan, of the PA WeatherCentre, said the intense heat would be broken by a band of thundery showers moving across the country.
"It will extend across all parts by tomorrow."
