Although it unlikely to be as warm as we have seen over previous weeks, there isn't a drop of rain in the Met Office's forecast, meaning that waterproofs should be able to stay in the car.

There are high of 18C predicted for Harrogate today, which is set to be hit throughout the majority of the afternoon.

And although there will be a covering of cloud for most of the day, the sun will still make appearances throughout the day.

UV levels are still going to be high, so make sure you wear protection if you're planning on being out in the sun for large periods, and covering up bare skin is recommended.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "It will be a dry day with sunny spells developing. Feeling warm in the sunshine inland, but cooler on the coast with a light to moderate onshore breeze."
