IT'S HOT .. AND THEN IT'S NOT.

HUDDERSFIELD'S topsy-turvy weather looks set to continue.
We're likely to be enjoying temperatures around the 20degC mark later today and into Thursday.
But next week could well see a return to cooler, wetter weather - and there's even a chance of a wintry shower of sleet or snow on the moors.
The forecast came from Huddersfield weather expert Paul Stevens who said the town is not expected to hit the temperature heights of other parts of the UK, where it will be a real scorcher this week.
"Some parts of the south could see temperatures of 25deg in the sun, which is well above average for the time of year.
"We reached 19degC yesterday and should get a degree or two higher today and into Thursday but then things start to change.
"At the moment we are getting the high pressure coming to us from the Azores and the west of Spain, bringing warm air across much of the UK.
"But we are on the edge of that and as we head into next week, we are likely to see it overtaken by a cold blast of air from the Arctic. "Don't be surprised if there are some sleet or snow showers on the moors and hills and the chance of a little bit of frost.
"We are enjoying a warm and dry spell this week and temperatures are well above average, but the weather continues to change as it has done for months."
Across the country the warmest day is still likely to be tomorrow over the SE with the London area likely to see the highest temperatures, but the capital may struggle to lift much above 24C and 25C looking less likely now.
The south from Hampshire to Dorset and Devon may still reach 20 to 21C on Thursday.
A lot of sea fog will linger around the SW of the UK for the next couple of days so it will remain a lot cooler near coasts.
The weekend will be dry for most of the UK with the best of the sunshine on Saturday.
