“Both days over the weekend in Suffolk and north Essex it is looking dry, with sunny spells and milder temperatures around 12 to 14C.

“Saturday will be breezy, with gusts up to 30 miles per hour which may bring patchy cloud cover.

“Sunday with be a bit calmer, with an oncoming cold front from the west stalling over the Midlands, keeping Suffolk mostly dry.”

He added: “If you are heading to a fireworks display, tonight will likely be the best night for visibility. People should be ready for the sudden temperature drop however, as it will be getting close to freezing on Friday evening.”
