There is no sign of the scorching weather coming to an end any time soon – and the mercury could even top 30C this week.
Temperatures hit highs of 28C (82F) across Suffolk and north Essex yesterday with people in Cavendish enjoying some of the best of the weather.
East Anglia is basking in one of the longest sustained periods of dry and sunny weather in several years and that is set to continue in the coming days.
Chris Bell, a forecaster at Norwich-based Weatherquest, said: “This high pressure that is with us at the moment is set to bring us dry weather for the rest of the week and it will remain quite hot.
“On Tuesday and Wednesday you are looking at temperatures close to 30C (86F) in western areas of Suffolk and north Essex.
You may also want to watch:
“It could be slightly cloudier and slightly cooler towards the end of the week but it will still be in the mid-20s.”
Despite a small chance of a thunderstorm tomorrow, it is predicted the rest of the week will be bright and day, with Friday due to be the coolest day with highs of 23C (73F).

Mr Bell added: “There is no real sign of an end to this weather yet. It could be a little cloudier and cooler but there are no major signs of rain at the moment.
“It could be sunnier at the weekend and it is looking like it will be very warm and dry.”
