Forecasters say that hail,wind and rain are on their way to East Anglia tomorrow after an earlier weather system missed our region.

After a number of weather warnings for thunderstorms in the past week forecaster believe that this evening will see a break in the warm weather.

Tomorrow will start off warm and dry with temperatures reaching around 33 or 34C.

For some areas of the county this will be welcome news: Brooms Barn near Bury St Edmunds has gone 51 days without receiving any rain, making it the driest area in the country.

Forecasters from Norwich based Weatherquest believe that where the storms do hit they will be strong with large hail,frequent lightening and gusty winds.

Despite this drop the figures are still slightly above average for this time of year.

There’s a chance of a shower on both Saturday and Sunday during the day but most places will stay dry.

Looking ahead to next week forecasters are unsure whether the temperatures will return to the highs we have seen this week.
