Suffolk will bask in a late burst of summer warmth with sunshine and blue skies predicted by forecasters.

Temperatures are expected to rise to the mid 20s across the county – with the mercury hitting 26C on Thursday.

But the weather is expected to turn more unsettled towards the end of the week with showers likely to fall on Friday and Saturday.

Phil Garner, a forecaster at Weatherquest, said: “It certainly looks fine for today and Wednesday, it’s going to be a nice spell of weather up until Thursday, but it is looking quite unsettled for Friday and Saturday.”

Mr Garner said a slow moving front from the west and humid air coming from Europe could also bring about some thundery weather towards the end of the week, going into the weekend.

But despite the threat of showers, temperatures will not fall drastically.

Mr Garner said: “It is looking more unsettled with some rain but temperatures will still be in the low 20s so it is looking quite mild. I think we could still see some warm temperatures towards the end of next week.”
