SUN worshipers got a treat this weekend as Huddersfield enjoyed its warmest day in more than six months.

Temperatures soared from last weekend’s miserable 42°F (5.5°C) to a balmy 63°F (17.2°C) on Saturday but then plummeted again yesterday.

Salendine Nook weatherman Paul Stevens said the fine weather should remain all week.

He said: “Saturday was the warmest day since October 3 – it was a lovely spring day about 10°F above normal for this time of year. That falls into the warm category.

“It’s unusual to have that after such a long and cold winter.”

Paul said the sudden switch from winter to summer in one week was down to the position of a high pressure and the fact the sun was getting stronger and the days longer.

“Temperatures react quickly to that,’’ he said. “We’ve got a blocking high pressure to the north east so more fine and dry weather is still to come.

“Yesterday was a little bit colder than Saturday because there was a wind coming from the north east.’’

And if your think it’s plain sailing weatherwise from now on, think again.

Paul added: “Watch out for a cold snap next weekend.”
