We awoke this morning to heavy rain, in contrast to the summer-like feel of recent days.

This is already drying up and we can even expect some sunshine this afternoon, with temperatures as high as 17C.

In a tweet from regional forecasters Weatherquest, they said their team expect a cloudy start with some rain, clearing to the north later this morning and light south or southeasterly winds.

A dry Thursday night and southerly winds will be followed by a colder front from the north on Friday night and Saturday. Large patches of heavier showers will hit most of Suffolk on Saturday, reaching north Essex by Saturday night.
