SUNNY Suffolk was set to bask in a summer heatwave this weekend – and there's more to come.

Weather forecasters are predicting this year's top temperatures will be smashed by Monday.

Thermometers are set to reach more than 30C – into the high 80s Fahrenheit – by Monday.

And Suffolk, along with the rest of the south-east, has been promised the best of the weather.

And the mini-heatwave is then expected to peak on Monday with temperatures soaring still further.

PA WeatherCentre forecaster Nikki Robertson said: " It's going to be a really, really, warm weekend.

"The south could see temperatures hitting 27C today and in the north it'll still be a very pleasant 24-25C."

Experts are confident Monday will break this year's current record of 30.5C, in Shepshed, Leicestershire, on June 22.

The hottest weather will be confined to the south of England, with the possibility of temperatures hitting 31C.

Ms Robertson said: "It's going to be pretty hot everywhere on Monday with warm air coming up from the south and the tropics.

"Central and northern England will probably hit 27C and Scotland could have highs of 24C."

But anyone making plans to take the whole of next week off work in a bid to soak up some sun should beware.

The heatwave is set to come to a typically British sticky end by Tuesday.

Forecasters are predicting mounting humidity topped off with a thunderstorm or two.
