People heading to beer gardens, al fresco restaurants or street cafes on Super Saturday can expect a mixture of weather with rain set to dominate in the morning but the afternoon likely to be brighter.

So-called ‘Super Saturday’ will see a number of restrictions eased across the country, with play areas, pubs, libraries and cafes all among the places allowed to reopen.

Weddings will also be permitted as we return to some sense of normality, although guest numbers will be capped at a maximum of 30.

Phil Garner, meteorologist at Norfolk-based Weatherquest, said the region is set for a wet and dreary start to the day – but the afternoon will bring sunshine and warm temperatures across the region.

Mr Garner said: “It is going to be a bit mixed on Saturday.

You may also want to watch:

“It is going to be a fairly cloudy start and throughout the morning, with chances of light rain across the region before lunchtime.

“Thankfully though it is going to become much drier and brighter in the afternoon, with temperatures expected to rise to 21C.”
