As East Anglia wakes up to another day of unseasonably warm weather, can we expect temperatures to reach record heights?
It is set to be another pleasant day across Suffolk and north Essex, with temperatures more closely resembling August than mid-October.
Forecasters predict that the mercury will hit 21C in some areas, while a few spots of light rain may pepper western parts of the region.
Storm Callum, which is expected to cause disruption across much of the UK, will merely graze the East of England – with no cause for concern.
While it is set to be cloudy for much of the day, bright spells will develop as time goes on – with conditions feeling humid and warm.
