At first glance, the weather yesterday at Cromer seemed to be identical to the weather today. The same dry and bright conditions, the same strong sunshine and the same gentle breeze.
But, for anyone heading to the beach armed with their sunlounger and bathing suit, there's been one important difference.
Yesterday, Cromer was the coldest spot in England with a maximum temperature of just under 11ºC. Today it's one of the warmest with a temperature at 1pm of 18ºC and the potential to reach 20ºC in the next few hours.
The reason for the difference? Yesterday's breeze came off the North Sea - still only 9ºC following the winter. Today's breeze rolls off the warm land to the southwest.
The fine weather won't last - rain arrives later this weekend.
