The Met Office forecast for Yorkshire said today will become very warm, except along the coast where a brisk breeze may develop. There will be patchy cloud at times, but also bright or sunny spells.
Tonight will bring areas of cloud at times, but also some clear spells. These, combined with very light winds, may allow some patchy mist or fog to form.
Any early mist or fog will soon clear tomorrow to give a dry and very warm day with occasional areas of cloud, bright or sunny spells and light winds.
Bank Holiday Monday in 1999 was 23.6˚C (74˚F) while the hottest bank holiday weekend ever was in 1995 when temperatures peaked on the Saturday at 28.6˚C (83˚F).
