Get the barbecues out this weekend as the weather’s going to get better and better.
A cold front in the North Sea has been causing us problems and giving a colder than usual start to June which has led to the cloud today and it may start off cloudy with even a touch of drizzle tomorrow morning.
But that should fade away so by Saturday evening it will be time to start cooking with clear skies and temperatures expected to reach about 19˚C (66˚F).
Huddersfield weather expert Paul Stevens said Sunday will be the best day for a barbecue. It will be sunny and warm all day with temperatures pushing up to 21˚C (70˚F).
Paul said the improvement will continue all next week with temperatures set to reach possibly 23˚C or 24˚C (75˚F) on Tuesday and Wednesday.
“The winds will be coming from the south,” Paul added. “It will be dry all week with just the risk of thundery showers at the end of the week.”
He said the forecasts show five good spells through the summer which are called plumes.
“We only had one last year,” said Paul. “But there will be about five this summer and this spell will be the first of them.”
