Norfolk continues to bask in the heat wave as forecasters warn the dry spell is set to continue into next week.

Gardeners praying for rain had their hopes raised this afternoon when an isolated shower appeared to form on weather charts near North Walsham. But those hopes where quickly dashed as forecasters warned that due to a combination of hot and dry surface air, little, if any rain would reach the ground.

Now, the Norwich based forecaster Weatherquest is warning that for the majority of the county the dry spell is set to continue into next week.

Forecaster Dan Holley said: “There is a chance of one or two isolated showers but not a great deal of rain and it could stay that way for much of the week. Showers will be hit and miss and many places will stay completely dry.”

When asked what the forecast held in store for the coming days Mr Holley added: “We’re just not seeing any rain on the charts. We keep looking but it’s just not there. There will be days where we see the odd shower but right now the dry weather could continue until next Wednesday.”

There will be some relief from the heat though as forecasters predict the next few days will feel fresher with temperatures in the low twenties before returning to the high twenties again at the beginning of next week.
