Warm and dry weather is set to descend on Suffolk this week, bringing an end to a miserable and rain-soaked winter.

Temperatures could hit the mid teens throughout this week and next while the mercury is expected to reach as high as 16C (60F) on Sunday.

Chris Bell, a forecaster with Weatherquest, said: “We are going to get into some high pressure unlike what we have seen for quite a while so we are going to end up with dry conditions for the most part for the rest of this week and into next week as well.”

Despite the bright forecast, there could still be a few drops of rain on Friday and Mr Bell added that it could become quite cloudy at times.

Temperatures throughout the week are expected to be between 10-14C.

The prediction will come as a relief to people across Suffolk and north Essex who have endured an extremely wet winter, with the St Jude’s Storm and the tidal surge just before Christmas causing havoc.
