Rain is expected on Thursday night and Friday as Latitude Festival starts at Henham Park, near Southwold.

The music and arts festival, which opens its gates tomorrow afternoon, will be welcoming thousands to the site as a range of acts perform until Sunday evening

Chris Bell, from Weatherquest, said that the wettest weather was expected in the next two days.

He said: “We are looking at rain spreading across with an increased chance after 6pm.

“The rain showers will then linger around for much of the day on Friday, with on and off rain showers.

“For Saturday there is a suspicion of it being a little better with more sunshine, but there is the potential for sharp showers on Saturday, with things to improve on Sunday and Monday, with maybe the small chance of showers but nothing too significant.”
