Suffolk: Spring sun set to shine on Suffolk during Easter break

SUFFOLK: Spring has well and truly sprung and the sunshine is here to stay – at least for the bank holiday weekend.

With temperatures predicted to remain high for the time of year, rain isn’t expected until towards the end of the month, according to forecasters.

Steve Western, of Weatherquest, said: “We are in for quite a spell of settled weather.

“We are not expecting any rain. We are excepting temperatures to remain well above average for the time of year. Ipswich would usually expect temperatures of about 12C at the time of year but they will be up to 19C or 20C on most days over the bank holiday weekend.”

It is hoped the good weather will boost the county’s tourist trade over the Easter weekend.

Tim Passmore, chief executive of Choose Suffolk said: “With good weather there is a huge amount of things to go and do. Why not visit one of Suffolk’s historic properties or go and sit in the sunshine at one of the county’s pubs or hotels?”

Mr Western said the Suffolk sunshine is expected to last throughout the long weekend.

He added: “It will be very warm for the time of year with long spells of sunshine which may turn a little hazy at times particularly at the coast.”

The settled spell will last right through the bank holiday and into the start of next week. Mr Western said: “We are not expecting any rain until towards the end of the month.”

Though excitement is mounting for the Royal Wedding on April 29, Mr Western said it is too early to predict if William and Kate and the thousands expected to join in the celebrations will enjoy blue skies and sunshine on the big day.
