Despite the arrival of meteorological summer, the stereotypical sunny weather has been put on hold.

As it moves on, Norfolk is to remain largely dry with occasional showers during the rest of the week.

However, those summer temperatures could return the week after with the second half of the month being much warmer.

A senior meteorologist at the British Weather Services, Jim Dale said the UK is heading "in the right direction" for a heatwave with temperatures "well into the 30s".

The Met Office agreed that a period of high pressure is set to bring warmer weather although challenged the idea that there are signs of a heatwave.

Its long range forecast for June 19 until the start of July says that "all areas can expect to see some spells of drier, sunnier weather".

The forecast added: "Temperatures are most likely to be close to normal or slightly above."
