Has spring finally arrived?

SUFFOLK sun-seekers were finally rewarded yesterday as East Anglia experienced one of the hottest days of the year.

After a damp and miserable start to the Bank Holiday weekend, there was warm sunshine yesterday – leaving many hoping that Spring had finally sprung.

Temperatures reached a maximum of 16C across Suffolk, with the prospect that the rest of the week would remain mostly dry.

WeatherQuest forecaster John Law said: “We have definitely experienced one of the hottest and nicest days of the year so far.

“Temperatures got up to 16C and that is up there with the highest temperatures we’ve had so far.

Mr Law added that he expected the weather for the week ahead to be settled and mainly dry.
