The region basked in unseasonably warm temperatures on Easter Saturday as the mercury soared to 24C.
Santon Downham saw the warmest temperature in Norfolk and Suffolk, hitting 24.3C, considerably above the average temperature for this time of year, 14C.
But while inland areas basked, it was chillier at the coast, with temperatures as low as 12C near Sheringham.
Dan Holley, a forecaster for Weatherquest, said the record temperature for Easter Saturday was 29.4C.
Most of the rest of the country saw temperatures a few degrees lower than Santon Downham, although Londoners enjoyed 25C.
