Norfolk could be one of the hottest places in the country tomorrow with temperatures reaching up to 24C, a weather forecaster has predicted. 

Summer is finally on the horizon and many are hoping the sunshine is here to stay.  

Despite the possibility of a few isolated showers and cloud later this week, Adam Dury, a forecaster at Weatherquest based at the University of East Anglia, said temperatures should hover around 20 to 23C into the weekend and early next week.  

He said: “It’s going to be pretty warm today with temperatures, going up to 24 to 25C in the far west of the region.  

“It will be a humid night in some places tonight, temperatures might not drop below 15 to 16C. But in most places, it will be 12-13C overnight.  

“Tomorrow, because the wind switches to the West, Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex could be the hottest places in the country, 23 to 24C as a high.  

“It will be pretty similar to Wednesday but the warmer weather with travel further east tomorrow. More likely nearer the coast.
