Temperatures got above 23C today and are set to get above 25C tomorrow and Sunday.

After the second wettest August on record, people are gearing up to make the most of some late summer sun.

Staff at Norwich law firm Mills & Reeve had a special treat from their management today.

Bosses organised for an ice cream van to come along to the firm’s offices, in Whitefriars, so that staff could nip out and enjoy some afternoon sun.

And all round the east of England this weekend people are expected to make the most of the weather, by heading to beaches and tourist attractions.

Dan Holley, forecaster at University of East Anglia-based Weatherquest, predicted a cooler breeze on the coast but is still expecting a very warm weekend.

He said: “it is certainly going to be a very decent day on Saturday, maybe with a bit of higher cloud later in the day and some patchy cloud in north Norfolk.

“Inland temperatures could get up to 25 or even 26 degrees on Sunday, when again there will be some higher cloud, which might just get thick enough for some isolated showers.

“From Monday it will then go a little downhill. It shouldn’t be a washout by any means but there will be an increasing chance of showers and more average temperatures.”

  • Very touching that anybody believes those Met Office boffins have any idea about weather on the North Norfolk Coast

  • It's not Met Office making the predictions, it's Weather Quest who are based at UEA.

  • Okay, so this outfit, just like the Met Office, haven't go a clue about the weather around this area. Ask anybody who has lived here for a while. Forecasts are just a joke

  • heatwave dangers are best countered by ice cold larger in the shade.
