EAST Anglia is basking in the same heat as parts of Spain with temperatures reaching the highest this year, it has been revealed.
Weather experts are predicting more of the same this week, as the region continues to benefit from the effects of an anti cyclone over the continent.
Temperatures in East Anglia were recorded at 17C (62F) yesterday - the same as Madrid and Barcelona – while the Greek capital Athens saw temperatures of only 8C (47F).
The average temperature for the region in March is 9C (48F) and EADT weatherman Ken Blowers said temperatures of 17C in the month were unusual.
"We've had 14 days of dry weather because of a large anti-cyclone centred over the continent," he said.
"The outlook is that it will become slightly cooler but will remain chiefly dry until the end of this week.
