Several major international sporting events are ongoing, and another began this weekend as the Tour de France is underway in England.
The first stage took place Saturday in Leeds before ending 190.5 km (118.4 mi) later in Harrogate. On Sunday, stage 2 runs from York and will end in Sheffield, 201 km (124.9 mi) later.
As always, weather will be an important factor in the race, with a general west wind throughout the second stage along with a brief shower or two.
The west wind will force the competitors to deal with head, cross and tail winds varying from 4-10 kph (3-6 mph).
There will be a mixture of clouds and sunshine with no heavy rainfall is expected, but roadways could be wet at points throughout the stage.
The final stage in England unfolds on Monday, taking competitors from Cambridge to London. The weather pattern should not change much with clouds and sun, a shower or two and a light south or southwest wind.
The Tour de France will shift back to France on Tuesday.
