The long May Bank Holiday weekend will see and interesting mix of weather, with humid conditions, heavy rain and a risk of thunderstorms.

According to experts from Norwich-based Weatherquest, Saturday will set the weekend off nicely as a dry day, with temperatures between 22C and 24C at their highest.

Forecaster Adam Drury added that it would feel “fresher” on the coast, with temperatures cooler at around 13C to 14C.

“Sunday will start off dry at first, with a risk of heavy showers and thunderstorms increasing throughout the day. Temperatures however, will rise to between 24C and 25C, with the Norfolk coast experiencing highs of 15C to 16C,” he said.

“Bank Holiday Monday will see a risk of thunderstorms for most of the day, it will be rather cloudy, with temperatures again between 24C to 25C which will probably feel a little uncomfortable as the atmosphere is going to be quite humid and moist.”
