It may be a pretty chilly start to Monday with clear skies and temperatures around the 6-7C mark but things are looking up later.

The weather is going to be pretty quiet with dry weather across the county for the rest of the day.

Rays of sunshine will be coming through fairly regularly but some patches of cloud can still be seen in north Suffolk.

The cloud won’t be bringing the temperature down thankfully, as it will get as high as 19C.

With the average temperature being just 15C for this time of year, we are doing pretty well.
