The Bank Holiday in Monday in Suffolk is expected to be cloudy as forecasters reveal this August has been the chilliest in a decade.

The Met Office is not expecting temperatures to reach higher than 19C today, with only a small chance of sunshine breaking through.

Showers are also possible, but forecasters say the Bank Holiday is likely to remain dry.

Chris Bell, of East Anglian-based forecaster Weatherquest, revealed on Twitter that the region's highest temperature this August has been the lowest since 2012.

The highest August temperature was recorded last year at 36.3C - but that sharply fell to 24.9 this month.
