The good weather in the region is set to continue, with temperatures nearing to those in Ibiza, Valencia, Barcelona, and warmer than Casablanca.

Today, the warmest weather recorded by East Anglian based forecasters Weatherquest was in the Brecklands, reaching highs of 26 degrees celcius.

It was 25 degrees in Bury St Edmunds and at around 5pm Wattisham the temperature was recorded at 24 degrees.

Dan Holley, a forecaster at Weatherquest said: “The highest temperatures have been in London and south of there, at around 28 and 29 degrees.”

And tomorrow, it’s only going to get warmer. In London temperatures could reach 31 degrees.

Mr Holley added: “Even Ipswich will be getting up to 27, 28 degrees in the afternoon.

“By the coast it will be 21 or 22 degrees.”

Out to the West of the Essex by the M11, temperatures could be as high as 31 or 32 degrees.

The weather for many places in the mediterranean will be close to the temperatures in Essex and Suffolk, according to the Met Office.

In Casablanca, there will be highs of 26 degrees, in Barcelona it will be 28 degrees. It will also be 28 degrees in Valencia, and 29 in Ibiza.

It will also be as warm as Barbados, which is due to reach 28 degrees.

Mr Holley said: “The sun is strongest during the middle of the day.

“By the looks of things pollen levels will be medium today, though locally they may just touch high.

“UV levels are high as well.”

However, on Saturday, the temperature will drop by two or three degrees, with an increased risk of thunderstorms on Saturday evening and Sunday.

However there was a positive note to end on as Mr Holley said: “The temperature will go back up by the middle of next week.”
