Last month was confirmed as the driest and sunniest May on record in East Anglia with only 9% of its average rainfall.

But the weather has taken a turn for the worse in the last few days, with weeks of unbroken sunshine interrupted by heavy showers.

Adam Dury, meteorologist at East Anglian-based forecasters Weatherquest, said: “Saturday will be quite blustery to start, with rain then coming southward.

“It could be quite thundery later in the day.

“On Sunday, there might be the odd shower at the start of the day, but nothing too heavy.

“Wind speeds are also expected to be lower.”
