Nowton Park, near Bury St Edmunds, looked a picture with a carpet of bright yellow daffodils lining each side of the central avenue of trees.

Although the temperature was far from balmy with a seasonal high of just 10C, dog walkers, families and youngsters took advantage of the clear blue skies and enjoyed taking a stroll among the blooms.

But according to Phil Garner, a forecaster at UEA-based Weatherquest, Thursday’s sunshine is not set to last.

“Life is expected to get a bit cloudy and cool over the next couple of days,” Mr Garner said.
