The sunshine has continued in East Anglia this weekend, with highs of 24-25C forecast for Monday.
And the mercury is likely to rise even higher at the start of next week.
Norwich-based forecaster Weatherquest said sunshine could be expected across the region throughout Sunday, with highs of 21C.
It might even be worth getting the barbeque back out as, despite Hurricane Ophelia approaching the UK with gusts of up to 80mph forecasted, some areas of Norfolk and Waveney could enjoy a balmy 25C (77F) early next week.
Sunday night is forecast to be warm and dry, with Monday morning predicted to be bright and sunny, with highs of 24-25C by midday.

The forecaster added that Monday 'should stay dry, with a bit of increasing cloud'.

Met Office forecaster, Alex Burkhill, said that cold sea temperatures mean Storm Ophelia will not be strong enough to be categorised as a hurricane when it hits Britain, and the west country will see the worst of the storm.
The storm will be close to southern Ireland on Monday morning, with winds picking up to speeds of 70-80mph.
And severe winds in the west of the country are likely to cause damage to roads and disruption to travel.
