Suffolk: Sunny weather to stay for the weekend
SUNNY weather will make a cracking start to the Easter holidays as warm sunshine is expected to last all weekend.
The first touch of summer is in the air as Suffolk basked in dry, warm weather today, with temperatures hitting 20C in some parts of the county.
Joe Osborne, a forecaster with Weatherquest, said: “It has been generally warm everywhere.
“It has been one of the finest days you could imagine across the UK.
“The whole of Britain has been sunny, warm and dry.”

As well as perfect barbecue weather, Mr Osborne said Suffolk should enjoy a high of 18C tomorrow, which will continue into Sunday.
“It’s a cracking weekend,” he said. “The weather really should be fine.
“There may be a little cloud around at times but there should be plenty of sunshine and it should stay dry.” But Mr Osborne said those heading to Suffolk’s coast to soak up the sun could find slightly cooler weather.
“I expect those on the first day of the Easter holidays might flock to the coast but just a word of warning,” he said.
“There might be a bit of a breeze but the weekend really does look sunny.”
