After today’s sunny bank holiday, a long warm, dry spell looks set to continue - with little rainfall expected for East Anglia during June.

“Winds will be lighter than yesterday, with gentle onshore breezes developing around the coast”.
It also predicted that highest temperatures will be close to 26C (79F).
Weatherquest forecaster Adam Drury said: “Temperatures are likely to be slightly above average over the next week, although they will be a little bit higher on the coast.

Looking further ahead to the next four weeks, Mr Drury said: “It is looking fairly dry, with not any great amounts of rainfall.”

It is difficult for forecasters to say how long the good weather will continue, but the World Health Organisation’s Europe office has said that much of Europe needs to be prepared for a long, hot summer and commented: “Weather services are expecting the coming summer to be warmer and drier than usual in the region.”
