Hottest day of the year but thunder showers on the horizon

The UK’s mini heat wave is set to continue today with temperatures reaching up to 26 °C

Many have been basking in the warm weather including these horses which Linda Waddington from Greetland took a picture of.

With the hot and humid weather to stay in many parts of the West Yorkshire, there will be the chance later of scattered heavy, thundery showers.

The outlook for the rest of the week will see sunny spells, with more showers expected. Thursday onwards will become more unsettled with often cloudy conditions and showers or longer spells of rain, sometimes heavy and perhaps thundery.
