Don’t put away your sun hats just yet, it’s going to be another hot day with high temperatures of 33C (91F) predicted across parts of Suffolk and north Essex.
After the record-breaking bank holiday weather, the region will see another dry and sunny day although there is a risk of some thundery showers later.
A high of 33.2C (91.6F) at Heathrow Airport yesterday made it the hottest August Bank Holiday Monday on record.
Met Office meteorologist Craig Snell said: "The heatwave is going to continue for some of us for another day with temperatures reaching around 33C, but also across the UK we are also starting to see a transition with some places seeing cloud and fresher air."
Crowds of people flocked to Felixstowe yesterday to enjoy the warm weather on the seafront.
