With the schools set to break up next week, the question many people will be asking is: what will the weather be like during the summer break?
Although the weather in the past few weeks has been unusually warm and bright, with record-breaking temperatures across the country, the past few days has seen a slight dip in temperatures and some rainfall.
So, will the weather over the next few weeks be sunny and warm or bleak and grey?
Here’s the outlook for the school summer holidays
The beginning of next week in Sheffield is set to see peak temperatures of around 27C with a mixture of sunny intervals and pure bursts of sunshine, with very little cloud.
Tuesday July 24 is then expected to be similar, with sunny intervals, a gentle breeze and the peak temperature of around 25C.
Wednesday July 25 will then be similar to the day before, with peaks of around 23C, sunny intervals and a gentle breeze.
Thursday will also be similar, but after that Friday, Saturday and Sunday are expected to become cloudier, with less sunshine and again, a gentle breeze.
Monday July 30 is then set to bring rain, with light showers expected throughout the day and a peak temperature of around 22C.
According to the Met Office, the run up to the end of July will bring a good deal of dry and often sunny weather, though there may also be the odd thundery shower.
Most places throughout the UK are expected to be warm and increasingly humid, including Yorkshire, but the south and parts of the east and northeast will become very warm.
Throughout the rest of July the north and west of the country can expect more changeable and breezy conditions with some outbreaks of rain or showers.
However, temperatures will generally still be warm or very warm, coinciding with the start of the summer holidays.
The weather pattern for the first two weeks of August is then forecast to be very slow moving, with the potential for breezier, cloudier conditions with some rain or showers at times.
Temperatures in general will remain above average, with the potential for further spells of very warm or hot conditions.
