Showers will develop across Suffolk this afternoon and continue over the weekend following sunny spells this morning, forecasters say.

Temperatures are not expected to rise much above 14 degrees today (October 9) as showery weather sets in for the next few days.

Phil Garner, a meteorologist at East Anglian forecaster Weatherquest, said: “There’s a showery band of rain developing in the afternoon.

“This morning is fine – I think we’ll see some reasonable sunny spells all the way through to lunchtime – but it’s certainly looking more unsettled this afternoon.
