People flocked to the beaches and parks of Suffolk in their droves this weekend as the county enjoyed the hottest day of the year so far – and the scorching weather is not over yet.

The mercury hit highs of 28C in parts of Suffolk yesterday with people in Cavendish, near Long Melford, enjoying the best of the weather with a top temperature of 28.1C on Sunday .

On Saturday, temperatures hit highs of nearly 26C.

Forecasters are now predicting the fine and dry conditions we have enjoyed over the last few days will continue this week and into the weekend.

Despite a slight dip in the middle of this week, Met office forecaster, Michael Lawrence, said there will still be plenty of sunshine for people to enjoy

He added: “We are expecting a bit more of a breeze on Monday which might blunt the temperatures slightly, but really there’s still a lot of sunshine around.

“We got a lot of fine and dry weather at the weekend and that is likely to continue going into Monday itself.
