Norfolk could be as hot as Ibiza this week, with temperatures predicted to reach up to 28C in parts of the county. 

It may have been a cloudy start to the day [Monday September 6] but once that has cleared Norfolk is set for sunny spells and the warmest temperatures we have seen for some weeks. 

Most inland areas can expect temperatures of 25 to 27C today, but it will be cooler on the coast.  

The Great Yarmouth area should see highs of 21C to 22C. 

Predicting the conditions for Tuesday, Weatherquest forecaster Adam Dury said: “It will be similar on Tuesday, but more in the way of sunshine and less cloud around during the morning. Overall, it will be a sunnier day. 

“Tomorrow it will also be slightly warmer. The region as a whole will see temperatures of around 27C to 28C for most inland areas. The warmest temperatures will be in the west of Norfolk, into Cambridge.

“But highs of only 21C to 22C along the coast.”
