Temperatures could top 30C this weekend as summer truly arrives in Suffolk.
It's a cloudy start to Friday but forecasters are predicting a warm weekend across the region with Saturday set to see the best of the weather.
Conditions should brighten as the day goes on, on Friday with sunny spells arriving at lunchtime along with temperatures of 19C.
However, it is Saturday where things look set to hot up.
"It is still looking like it should stay dry right the way through the weekend," said Weatherquest forecaster Fred Best.

Inland we could see temperatures of 31, 32 or 33C, meaning that Saturday could be one of the hottest days so far this year.
In coastal areas this temperature is likely to drop, however, to around 23 or 24C.
Sunday will see temperatures drop to between 20 - 23C.
Looking ahead to next week temperatures will cool off a little bit more but will still be reasonably warm.
On Monday temperatures are expected to reach 21 or 22C and will remain in the high teens or low 20s for the rest of the week.
