Forecasters say high pressure is one of the main reasons behind the glorious weather, which is expected to reach its peak on Sunday.

Dan Holley, a forecaster at Weatherquest, said the mercury is expected to hit the low to mid teens on Saturday, but it will be largely cloudy.

However on Sunday, the cloud will give way to blue skies and temperatures of between 16-18C.

Mr Holley added: “All in all it is fairly pleasant weather really.”

Temperatures next week are expected to be between the low to mid teens.

Friday’s top temperature is expected to be around 13C while on Monday, the mercury could rise to as high as 16C.

Don't believe the message that Jeremy Corbyn is unelectable

There’s something about Jez (as we hip young things on social media call Jeremy Corbyn) that thoroughly warms my cockles. Perhaps it’s his air of humility, his open-necked honesty or simply his dogged under-dogness?

Providing care for those in extreme old age, and with serious long-term health problems, is one of the major challenges facing society – especially for an area like East Anglia which has a disproportionately high number of older people.
