It might be wise to pack a waterproof if you're planning to watch Le Tour de France come though Huddersfield on Sunday.

Examiner weatherman Paul Stevens says the weather is looking 'mixed' for the weekend of Le Grand Depart.

He has forcast sunshine and showers on Saturday, when the race begins in Leeds, and on Sunday, when it passes through Huddersfield.

He said: "Saturday will see early rain soon clearing and clouds breaking around lunchtime to good afternoon sunny spells.

"Fresher too, with a few showers from the west."

He predicted temperatures of 16 degrees Celcius and a cool Saturday night, with lows of 7 degrees Celcius at around 6am Sunday morning, the day Le Tour comes to Calderdale, Huddersfield and Holmfirth.

 

He added: "On Sunday the Huddersfield part of the race will start dry with sunny spells but showers won't be to far away.

"But with a bit of luck and north west wind by the time the race is passing through Huddersfield the showers will be mostly light and brief and any heavy showers will be through the afternoon."

He said there would be a high of 16 degrees Celcius on Sunday.
