It’s been a remarkably fine and dry summer across our region, but many of us are longing for some typical English showers. Will today be the day?

It is set to be another very warm day across East Anglia, with highs of 28C and plenty of sunny spells pleasing many who are heading to Jimmy’s Festival this morning.

However not everybody is enjoying the dry spell – and for some, the day may well be improved by a scattering of isolated showers.

According to forecasters at the Met Office, Saturday will start off dry for a time with variable amounts of cloud, before sharp showers develop into the afternoon.

While most parts of the East will bake in the Mediterranean-style heat once again, things will be cooler along the coast – with sea-breezes developing.

As we move into the evening, any isolated showers will fade away and patchy mist and fog could begin to develop overnight.

We are less likely to see rain tomorrow, as things are looking to be even warmer, with highs of 28C. And while forecasters warn it will feel “increasingly humid”, it is not until Wednesday next week that we may see some heavy and thundery showers develop.
