Suffolk is set to see the hottest day of the year so far over the Easter weekend as temperatures break into the mid twenties.

Friday will see the best of the weather, with temperatures potentially hitting 24C, but clear skies are expected throughout the weekend.

Despite a small chance of mist earlier on today, the sun is expected to burn through to bring temperatures in the low twenties.

Phil Garner, forecaster for Weatherquest, said: “It will be fine and dry all through the day.

“It is looking like there will be some patchy mist to start the day but there will be widespread sunshine for most of Suffolk.
