As the Bank Holiday weekend approaches you might be wondering whether you'll be basking in the sun with a BBQ or facing a total washout.

According to experts from Norwich-based forecaster Weatherquest, the bulk of the long weekend will be filled with warm weather, with only a small chance of showers.

Weatherquest's James Wilby said: 'There's a little uncertainty, but it does looks set to be a warm one across Norfolk.

'Saturday and Sunday should be mostly dry, with a small risk of showers on Sunday evening.

'Temperatures for the weekend should be at around 24C/25C on Saturday, rising to highs of 28C or even 29C on Sunday.
