A weather warning remains in place with thunderstorms predicted for Norfolk and the rest of the country.
The whole of the UK is under a warning on Tuesday and Wednesday, while it will also remain in place exclusively for England on Thursday.
Temperatures in Norfolk are set to remain in the high 20s today and could hit 30 on Wednesday and Thursday as the heatwave continues.
And while thunderstorms are predicted, the Met Office said there is “significant uncertainty in location and timing”.
Forecasters have said there is a “small chance” that “flooding, lightning strikes and large hail” could follow the scorching temperatures we have experienced over the last week.

Those patches of thunder and lightning are less likely towards the end of the week, though the Met Office says they are “still possible”.
