There will be sunny intervals today and it will be pleasantly warm in the sunshine with temperatures topping 21 degrees.

Thickening cloud tonight will bring outbreaks of rain from the west with rain locally heavy in places.

A quiet start on the roads with minimal disruption, but traffic is slow on the M62 eastbound between J26, M606 (Chain Bar) and J27, M621 (Gildersome).

There are no reported problems with public transport.
