There is finally some rain on the cards to break the prolonged dry spell in Suffolk.
Today we are once again basking in Mediterranean-style temperatures - and it is expected to get even hotter before the weather breaks.
However forecasters are predicting a change this weekend, with thunderstorms set to sweep the east of England.
According to the Met Office, Friday will be “potentially very hot, with heavy showers and thunderstorms”.
There is up to a 60% chance of rain across the region overnight on Friday, with some showers continuing into Saturday morning.
The showers would bring some long awaited relief for farmers and gardeners across the region, some of whom have suffered seven weeks without rain.
For the time being, forecasters at the Met Office are predicting highs of 30C today, with plenty of hot sunshine.
While it should remain dry and largely sunny, one or two heavy showers cannot be completely ruled out later in the day.
