Suffolk is set for a misty morning, with the chance of a rumble of thunder in the west of the county this afternoon.

Chris Bell, forecaster at Weatherquest, said it will be a generally cloudy day, with a chance of thunderstorms later in the day.

He said: “We have got some fog around at the moment but that should gradually clear through the morning.

“Coastal areas and northern parts of Suffolk will become brighter and should be mostly dry today.

“The further west you are in the county there is a risk of a few showers developing and possibly the rumble of thunder.

“Temperatures will vary across the region but will probably be around 16-17C.

“It will be warmer than it has in the last few days. “We will still see those easterly winds so if you are heading to the coast or the beach today you are talking about temperatures of around 11-12C.
