    BBC Weather

    Today will see a mild start with thunderstorms possible across parts of North Yorkshire through the first part of the morning.

    Brightening up with warm sunshine with the risk of scattered thunderstorms developing across the whole of Yorkshire this afternoon.

    Feeling very warm and humid with a top temperature of about 28C (82 F).

  3. Sheffield tower blocks to get fire sprinkler systems

    A reminder of a story which broke yesterday evening in South Yorkshire:

    All 24 council tower blocks in Sheffield are to be fitted with sprinkler systems following the Grenfell Tower fire in London.

    The city council said it was installing the safety equipment "to provide extra reassurance to residents."

    Tenants will be consulted about the work later this year.

    The authority also said exterior cladding used on the flats was "fireproof and complies with building and planning regulations".

  4. Good morning: Join us for today's live coverage across Yorkshire

    BBC Local Live, Yorkshire

    Hello and welcome to BBC Local Live in Yorkshire on Wednesday 21 June 2017.

    We'll be with you throughout the day with all the latest news, sport, travel and weather updates.

    It's another beautiful morning. The summer weather is creating some dramatic skylines, so I thought I'd start today with this wonderful BBC Weather Watcher pic from Hawes.


    Weather Watcher Brian wrote a nicely detailed description to go with it too.

    He says: "Light cloud spreads down from the North to the Yorkshire Dales, as the last of the evening sun lights up the trail of a plane bound for Canada."

    Very poetic. I don't know how he knows where the plane is heading, but I'll take his word for it. Perhaps there's an app?
