While we may have seen a wet start to the bank holiday weekend with flooding in some areas experts say it is set to improve.
Chris Bell, weather forecaster at Norwich-based Weatherquest, says that the county can look forward to a sunny bank holiday Monday despite the dreary start to the weekend.
He said: “Today was probably the worst day of the weekend so that’s the good news.
“It has started to brighten up and should continue to do so throughout the weekend.
“It may be a bit cloudy to star the day tomorrow but temperatures will get up to around 22 degrees.
“Into bank holiday Monday will be sunny with temperatures around 22 to 24 degrees.
“After a pessimistic start with all the rain and cloud people can look forward to the rest of the weekend.”
Mr Bell added that the atmosphere should feel less humid due to a North Easterly breeze.
Although the weather is set to improve the rain has already made its mark with a number of roads flooded across the county.
Silfield Road, near Wymondham Train Station, has been blocked by flooding as has the B1153 at Gayton Thorpe between Common Lane and the Wilson’s Drove junction.
