Weather experts say tonight is likely to be the best time to see fireworks with clear skies expected this evening.

While temperatures are expected to be low tonight, there is the potential for clouds and windy conditions over the weekend which could make it difficult to see the explosions.

There is a full list of all the organised fireworks celebrations in East Anglia here.

A Weatherquest spokesman said: “As the sun sets, temperatures are going to drop very quickly to around 2 or 3C, but we are forecasting clear skies and low wind speeds.

“Both days over the weekend in Suffolk and north Essex it is looking dry, with sunny spells and milder temperatures around 12 to 14C.

“Saturday will be breezy, with gusts up to 30 miles per hour which may bring patchy cloud cover.

“Sunday with be a bit calmer, with an oncoming cold front from the west stalling over the Midlands, keeping Suffolk mostly dry.”

He added: “If you are heading to a fireworks display, tonight will likely be the best night for visibility. People should be ready for the sudden temperature drop however, as it will be getting close to freezing on Friday evening.”

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.
