ACROSS Suffolk people have been seeing glorious weather from their offices, classrooms, or workshops all week - but today there was good news.
The sunshine is here to stay!
Many could not believe their luck when the May Day holiday weekend turned out so well and feared that the good weather could not last.
But now it looks as if the warm sunny weather will be a feature well into next week . . . and possibly for much of the rest of the month!
Workers in the area are no doubt desperate to leave their offices this week as the Celsius surge over the Bank holiday has driven weekday temperatures into the mid-20s.
This weekend, the town can expect highs of at least 23C during the day and 11C at night, with wind speeds around 10mph.

If you travel to the coast, the temperature is still expected to hit 20C - very pleasant for a stroll along Felixstowe prom or to build sandcastles at Southwold.
The sustained sunburst is down to high pressure over the North Sea and the warming continent which is trapping heat over the UK, said Star weatherman Ken Blowers.
“We're enjoying the best spell of weather since last September, and it seems certain to go on for a few more days and into the weekend.
“Once the continent warms up we can get these anticyclones hanging around and that seems to be happening now,” he added.
A ridge of high pressure will push down and across the British Isles from Scandinavia, giving mainly dry weather with some warm, easterly winds.
According to experts at the Met Office, the fine weather is set to stay for much of the rest of the month. Rainfall totals are expected to be below average, especially across East Anglia and the south east of England.
