An autumnal feel will be on the way soon so families have been making the most of the sunshine while they can.
With forecasters predicting no spells of hot weather coming along until the end of September, any hopes for an Indian summer look to be blown away for another year.
Phil Garner, of the Norwich-based Weatherquest forecasting company, said: "We have had occasional hotter spells but there has been no prolonged heatwave this summer. It has been mixed."
There should be a cooler feel to the weather on Wednesday after Tuesday's early sunshine, but Mr Garner said there are hopes for highs of 21 to 22 degrees Celsius over the weekend.
Some patchy mist and fog has also been predicted overnight with the risk of some showery light rain or drizzle at times.
Mr Garner said: "I think for the next eight to 10 days the weather is generally quite settled with no heavy rainfall but there will be an easterly wind turning north-easterly.
"It is getting to the time of year when it is to be expected to have a more autumnal feel to the weather and there is no sign of spells of extended periods of hot weather coming along."

This is not to say the end of September may not see spells of sunshine with Weatherquest's charts not extending that far at this point.
The Met Office is predicting plenty of overcast skies in Norwich over the next week with highs of 19 and 17 degrees Celsius on Wednesday and Thursday respectively.
But people were out enjoying the sunshine on Tuesday morning soaking up the last rays of summer while they can.
Children were enjoying cycling with friends in city parks, while others could be seen reading on benches, as well as relaxing on the grass.
People were also enjoying the sunshine in other parts of the county with Salhouse Broad and Sea Palling beach among the places seeing an influx of people with some having fun in the water.
A spokesperson for the Met Office said the weather has been dry this week with some warm sunshine thanks to high pressure.
On Wednesday August 25 we could see highs of up to 19C in Norwich.
The Met Office reports a cloudy start to the day in the East of England which should lift and make way for some bright and sunny spells. But then turning cloudy again later on.
Thursday should be a similar day, cloudy but dry with highs of 17C, with a fresh north-easterly breeze.
On Friday it should be slightly warmer as temperatures go back up to around 19C - sunny changing to partly cloudy by the night time.
Going into the bank holiday weekend it’s looking largely dry and bright on Saturday, with the risk of a few showers. Highs of 19C.
Temperatures should stay the same on Sunday, with sunny spells changing to cloud by lunchtime.
Sunday could also see a cloudy start to the day but changing to sunny intervals late morning also with highs of around 19C.
