More heavy rain hit parts of North Yorkshire as the recent heatwave turned into more familiar weather.

Paul Knightley, a senior forecaster with MeteoGroup, the weather division of the Press Association, said slow moving and thundery showers were expected to develop bringing the risk of some torrential downpours, particularly across northern areas with the potential for localised flooding, with standing water and spray on roads also possible.

Mr Knightley said: "Some areas will see heavy rain today with temperatures a shade below what you would expect, but they will begin to rise on Wednesday, when it may reach 23 to 24C. We can expect Thursday to be very warm or hot, with temperatures up to 25 to 27 in the north. Friday should still be very warm with a growing risk of showers and thunderstorms at the weekend.”
