Temperatures are expected to soar this week as Norfolk looks set for a brief summer heatwave.
Phil Garner, meteorologist at Norwich-based Weatherquest, said temperatures could reach 30C in the west of the region on Wednesday afternoon.
Hot and humid conditions are expected to continue into Thursday with predictions of 30C inland and 24C on the coast.
Temperatures could reach 28C inland on Tuesday.
Peak temperatures this week will make the UK hotter than Ibiza or even the Bahamas - with the Met Office issuing a level-two heat warning, urging those spending time outside to make sure they protect themselves from the sun.
