Sun seekers were out in Suffolk’s parks and coastal areas yesterday taking advantage of the unusually high temperatures and sunshine.
Visitors to Nowton Park, near Bury St Edmunds, took a stroll under blue skies among the daffodils and enjoyed afternoon tea at the park cafe.
By lunchtime yesterday, temperatures had already hit 18.3C (65F) at Cavendish in the west of the county, while parts of north Essex had seen the mercury climb to nearly 20C (68F).
Dan Holley, a forecaster at UEA-based Weatherquest, was expecting temperatures to reach 22C (71.6F) later in the day. He said: “For Wednesday, we can’t rule out highs of 24C (75F) but there will be a bit of sea breeze from lunchtime that will start to cool eastern parts of Suffolk.” By the weekend, we can expect temperatures to drop to around 13C (55F) which is average for the time of year.
