THE Met Office has forecast what the weather is going to be like for the coronation bank holiday as street parties are planned all over the UK.
Brits can look forward to “dry and mild weather” over the long weekend, the forecaster has said.
King Charles’ coronation is less than two weeks away, with street parties planned across the nation.
For those looking to be outside over the long weekend, Met Office press officer Grahame Madge said that they can expect “fairly settled conditions”.
“The remaining period, which is really the period I think that we’re focusing on, brings fairly settled conditions, pushing in from the southwest with plenty of dry and mildacross the UK,” he said.
“Temperatures (will be) generally near or slightly above average, with maximums expected in the high teens in the south of.”
However, he warned that it was difficult to give a precise forecast this far in advance.
“That is a very generic forecast for the UK,” he said.
He added that some areas of the UK will be cooler than others.
“Above average temperatures is a reference to UK as a whole,” he said.
“That doesn’t exclude the possibility of some areas being warmer or cooler, because obviously there are many parts that make up the average.”
Before the festivities get underway though, Brits will have to put up with some light rain and showers over thefew days, according to the Met Office.
Tonight, wintry shower will continue across north-east Scotland while elsewhere it will remain dry in most parts with broken cloud and some clear spells, especially in the north.

As Wednesday gets underway for most, it will be dull and damp in the south-west.
