Thousands hit the seaside resorts this weekend to bask in the hot weather, but sadly the blue skies are not here to stay just yet.

Today looks set to be a wet day with temperatures dropping to a maximum of 18C, with the air feeling much cooler than recent days.

Fred Best, a weather forecaster at Weatherquest predicts a dry start to the day, but by mid-morning showers will creep in from the south of the county.

He said: “By 10am we are predicting it to be much cloudier and even the heavy odd rumble of thunder in the west of the county.

“The showers should clear off in the afternoon and Suffolk will be drier, but there is still a chance of the odd heavy shower further west.”

By the end of the afternoon it will feel much cooler as the showers will pass and temperatures will be a maximum of 13C to 14C.
