An inch of rain could drench Huddersfield in the next 24 hours.

Heavy showers hit the town this morning, after three days of hot sunshine, and the weather is set to remain changeable.

Today’s dark skies were a marked contrast to the stunning weather of the past three days, which has seen temperatures soar to the mid 70s - well above average.

Today it struggled to reach just 17°C, which is average for the middle of May.

Huddersfield weatherman Paul Stevens admits there is no sign of a prolonged warm spell.

“Another pulse of low pressure from the south is heading our way.

“When it’s all done by Wednesday afternoon, it may well have turned out very wet with up to 30mm of rain a possibility.

“That’s going to be a bit of a shock after the days just past.

“The trend is for cooler and drier weather by the end of the week with a mixture of showers and sunny spells.

“Next week will bring a recovery in temperatures but still rather changeable, with no indications of prolonged heat and dry weather in the next few weeks.”
