After weeks of sunshine and searing heat the skies over Whitby turned sultry and stormy on this afternoon (Friday) with heavy downpours catching out daytrippers who had flocked to the coast to make the most of the hot weather.

The weather forecast for the rest of the day is further showers with a fresh breeze but still warm in the sunshine. Tomorrow there will be a mixture of sunny spells and showers.
