Warm temperatures and blue skies are set to continue in Norfolk, after the county saw its warmest day of the year.
Forecaster Dan Holley said on Twitter that with Marham having recorded temperatures of 16.5C on Friday, February 22, it was the warmest day of the year so far.
But he said the warmth wasn't felt everywhere, with a sea breeze on the north Norfolk coast seeing temperatures drop briefly to 9C at lunchtime.
The coming days are likely to remain mild, with plenty of sunshine predicted for Saturday afternoon, and a light, southerly wind.
Maximum temperatures will reach 13C on the coast, and 15C or 16C further inland.
