After yesterday’s bank holiday washout there was good news for all those returning to work today – we’ll be able to look out of our windows to finer weather!

Forecaster Phil Garner from Norwich-based Weatherquest said today and tomorrow should be better days before showers return tomorrow night and carry on through to the weekend.

He said: “It will be better once the rain has eased. The good news is that looking ahead temperatures will recover a bit – up to 21C or 22C.

“And there are some indications things will settle down a bit next week if our current projections are right.”
