Scarborough Hospital says it will be fully open by this evening after three wards were affected by a winter vomiting virus.
This morning (7th December) one ward still remained closed to new admissions because of an outbreak of the highly contagious Norovirus but managers are confident the hospital will be clear of the bug by the end of today.
They are still asking people showing symptoms to stay away if at all possible, until they are feeling better.
Rather windy with a little rain possible at times, however it will remain very mild and many should also see some sunny spells, particularly in the south and east.
Maximum Temperature 14 °C.
