We may have passed the summer solstice but Norfolk has seen a cooler start to the week.

A Norfolk weather forecaster says it should be a dry week overall with a mixture of cloud, wind and sunny intervals

Temperatures could rise to around 20 to 21C inland, from Thursday June 24 into the weekend - but it will cooler on the coast. 

Speaking on Monday, Adam Dury, a forecaster at Weatherquest based at the University of East Anglia, said: “Tomorrow should be pretty much dry across the region but with quite a bit of cloud in the morning.  

“During the day clouds slowly start to thin and more sunny spells into the afternoon. There will still be a bit of a north-easterly breeze.  

“Temperatures will still struggle a little bit with highs of 15-16C. The air temperature will be quite chilly in the breeze, but warm if you have the sun on you.  

“On Wednesday it will be another dry day but with longer spells of sunshine. There will still be a bit of a north-easterly breeze, but the winds should be a lot lighter.
