Norfolk and Suffolk has been basking in warm sunshine over the weekend with temperatures reaching 14-15C in some areas.
Temperatures today (Sunday) have reached 14C in Norwich and Marham and, with a light wind coming from the south west rather than the north, it has been busy on the region’s beaches with temperatures along the coast around 12C.
Chris Bell, a forecaster with UEA-based Weatherquest, said the warm, dry weather looks set to continue and could reach up to 20C on Wednesday before cooling off on Friday when it will be cloudier.
People heading out are being reminded of the risk of sunburn and hayfever.
“We’re getting to that time of year where, if you are of a paler complexion and you’re out in the sun for more than half an hour, you are at risk of being burnt so we need to think about sunscreen,” said Mr Bell.
“The pollen count is at medium as well with the trees starting to bud now we’ve got the warmer weather.”
