DESPITE two days of glorious sunshine, it will soon be time to put away your shades and sun cream because thundery weather is on its way.

While the region continued to bask in glorious sunshine throughout the day with temperatures similar to yesterday, the rain was on its way.

DESPITE two days of glorious sunshine, it will soon be time to put away your shades and sun cream because thundery weather is on its way.

While the region continued to bask in glorious sunshine throughout the day with temperatures similar to yesterday, the rain was on its way.

The west of the country is already being lashed by thunderstorms and they are sweeping eastwards, heading this way.

Evening Star weatherman Ken Blowers said: "It will be fine during the day but as we move into the evening there will be an area of thundery storms coming up from the south west.

"They will pass overnight and while they will be around here for a time tomorrow it will become dry in the afternoon and evening.

"The outlook is quite good again and it will be bright and sunny although the temperatures, rather than being so high, will be cooler at about 66F.

"It's not looking at all bad except for the period this evening and overnight when there will be thunderstorms or thundery rain."

Mr Blowers said today looked as if it would be warmer than yesterday when temperatures in Ipswich peaked at 70F.

Yesterday morning at 9am the temperature was 59F while today at the same time it had already reached 66F.

"This is the warmest spell since last August," Mr Blowers added.
