Suffolk is set for an unsettled weekend following a bright start to March - with bands of rain, cloud and sunny spells over the next few days.

There will be dry sunny spells across Suffolk today but rain could creep in later this afternoon and continue over the weekend.

Phil Garner, a forecaster for Weatherquest, said: “Across the county it will be a fine, bright morning with long sunny spells throughout.

“This afternoon will be particularly cloudy in parts, with light drizzle later on into the evening and top temperatures of 10C.”

He continued: “Friday evening will be a cloudy and possibly damp start, with showers continuing and overnight lows of 3C.”
