Suffolk and Essex are set for the warmest weekend of the year with temperatures expected to reach a balmy 21C (70F) on Sunday.
Forecasters are predicting summer temperatures normally seen in June and July so its time to grab a hat and enjoy the sunshine.
There’s plenty of family fun to be had with a host of Easter holiday events in the region and the popular Framlingham Country Show set to attract more than 10,000 visitors.
Phil Garner, forecaster at Weatherquest said: “In general terms, Sunday will be the best day of the weekend.
“Today, Saturday and Sunday are all looking to be warm.
“We are expecting temperatures of 16C-17C (61-63F) today with a fair amount of sunshine.
“On Saturday we can expect temperatures of 18C and on Sunday it will reach 21C (70F).
“For Saturday we will have pretty fair conditions with broken cloud and sunny spells.
“We will see less sunshine on Sunday though.
“Normal temperatures are usually around 12-13C (54-55F) so this is the type of temperature you would expecting June and late July.
Unfortunately, the hot weather is not expected to last, with normal April temperatures set to return on Monday.
Phil said: “It will be a complete contrast on Monday though with temperatures of 11C (52F).
“There will be a change in wind direction from south to north which will bring in the colder temperatures.
“My advice would be to enjoy the weekend while the sunshine is out.”
