The county looks likely to revel in glorious sunshine after Saturday as southerly winds bring warm temperatures to East Anglia.

Although Saturday is set to be a reasonably cooler 21C, Sunday will mark the beginning of the warm spell as temperatures are predicted to rise to 25C.

Zoë Johnson, forecaster for East Anglia-based agency Weatherquest, said: “Sunday is going to be the warmer day of the two – a largely dry day with sunny spells.

“Monday will be the day when temperatures start really climbing with the introduction of southerly winds. Generally it will be a bright and sunny day with a maximum temperature of around 27C.
