Britons Braced For Rainy Jubilee Celebrations
Jubilee revellers should prepare for wet weather as the action-packed and fun-filled long weekend of Diamond Jubilee celebrations continues, forecasters have warned.
A soggy start to the weekend failed to dampen spirits as the nation brings out the brollies and raincoats for another of festivities - including the Royal Pageant on the Thames to mark the Queen's 60th year on the throne.
It will be wet for most of England, Northern Ireland and Wales, although some northern English counties may stay dry, while Cornwall stands a good chance of brightening up after a wet start.
The rain will be heavy in places too, so it is not good news for those holding street parties. Scotland will have the best of the weather, staying dry with some brighter spells likely, especially near the east coast.
The rain will not be the only problem - it will cold as well, with temperatures typically in the range of 11C to 14C (52F - 57F) - well below average for the time of year.
A stiff breeze in the South East will make it feel even colder there. Those in London for the Thames River Pageant should be prepared for wet, breezy and chilly conditions.
The forecast is more uncertain that far ahead, but it is set to be another cool, rather cloudy day, with showers for Scotland and fairly light rain for England and Wales, particularly in the southeast of England.
The day will be a little warmer, but it will stay unsettled, with outbreaks of rain spreading from the South West.
