Met Office confirms Jubilee WASHOUT with showers to soak Brits during ‘uncertain’ Bank Holiday

THE Met Office has released its official forecast for the Jubilee Bank Holiday – and it looks like Brits are set to be hit by a washout.

The Met Office released the weather forecast for this week and Brits should have their umbrellas at the ready.

The Met Office released the following statement for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee saying: “From Thursday, things look likely to be settling down for most with good spells of dry and fine weather, especially in the south.

“A low-pressure system will introduce some showers, to northwestern areas for a time, most likely affecting Northern Ireland and western Scotland, however there is still some uncertainty around exact locations and timings.  

“Central and northern areas look likely to see some showers on Friday, while areas further south should get the best of any sunshine, with temperatures likely peaking at 22C in the southeast.  

“Although still open to some uncertainty, more settled weather is on the cards for most on Saturday and Sunday with patchy cloud and sunny spells, and only the odd spot of light rain, mainly across the far north.

“However, the far southeast could see some heavier showers for a time, depending on how a plume of warm air develops over the continent.”

Many Brits took to twitter following the announcement to vent their frustration with the dampening forecast.

One Brit said: “It wouldn’t be a Jubilee without some of rain, hail and thunder.”

Another added: “Hope the weather gets better before the bank holiday Jubilee weekend. Fed up of this rain now!!”

A Third said: “Typical, why is it going to rain on the Bank Holiday. British weather at its finest.”

  • Epsom confident that track will be raceable at Derby Festival

    EPSOM are confident that the track will be raceable at the Derby meeting after a spate of abandonments

    Trainers and jockeys have hit out at racecourses after FOUR meetings were abandoned in the last five days.

    Rain showers have caused horses to slip on the bends at Chester, Haydock, Lingfield and Windsor.

    And there are now concerns that the recent wet weather could make the famous bend at Tattenham Corner unsafe this weekend.

    But Epsom clerk of the course Andrew Cooper moved to calm those fears.

  • Edinburgh’s Wednesday to Saturday forecast

    Cloudy start with some showery rain but then brightening up to leave a mainly dry afternoon, still the odd shower however.

    Feeling warmer than of late with maximum temperatures of 17 °C.

    As we look to Thursday and Friday there will be mainly dry and settled days with some spells of warm sunshine.

    Although the southwest may turn cloudy with a few showers on Friday.

    WXCHARTS suggests temperatures in the Welsh capital of Cardiff will likely vary from around 4C to 13C.

    Temperatures in the south east and London could reach as high as 15C. But the central belt of Scotland will rise this morning with mercury at just 2C.

    And over 15mm of rainfall is forecast to fall in Lincolnshire and 21mm is set to fall in the area just below Aberdeen by the end of the day.

    “A few showers in northeast, whilst rain across Northern Ireland moves east into northwest England, Wales and the northwest Midlands.

    “Chilly in the south with a few fog patches.”

    Looking ahead to the remainder of the week, the UK’s national weather service added: “Rain across central areas moving east and turning showery through the morning.

    “Some heavy showers across northern and eastern England. Drier in west and north with sunny spells.

    “Most areas mainly dry on Thursday and Friday, but showers likely in the north and west.

    “Sunny spells Saturday, but risk of some heavy showers across central southern areas.”

    It has already been said that the weather for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee bank holiday looks unclear – and it could be a washout across the country.

  • Driving expert shares tips you need to know before setting off on a rainy day

    DRIVERS need to be careful out on the roads, but that’s especially the case when it’s a wet and miserable day.

    When you’re driving in the rain it’s important that you’ve got good visibility so you can avoid accidents and coming into any trouble on the road.

    Aside from the dangers, you don’t want to face any fines either, as poor visibility might lead you to take wrong turns down no access roads and miss import signage on speed limits and more.

    One TikTok user and driving expert has come to the roadside rescue, as they think they’ve cracked the code to driving in the treacherous conditions:

    1. Turn off the automatic stop start function – If you fail to turn off the stop-start button then you could conk out the engine as it keeps trying to power up.
    2. Defog the windscreen – It’s quicker to match the cold of the A-C with cold from outside on the window to defog that heating up inside would, and once you maintain a steady temperature in the car you’ll be able to see a lot more clearly out.
    3. Turn on the ESP button – The Electronic Stability Programme which is a safety system that’s designed to help you keep control of your car.
      It’s designed to help if you happen to swerve on the road which is likely in wetter conditions when stopping speed is reduced.
  • Long range forecast for Saturday 4 Jun – Monday 13 Jun

    The Met Office have given their predictions for what’s in store early June.

    Forecasters have said there will be, “generally more settled conditions for most initially, with plenty of fine, sunny weather. Cloudiest conditions likely for the far north with the odd spot of light rain, perhaps more persistent across Shetland.

    “Some showers, potentially heavy, may clip the far south or southeast over the weekend, but most areas remaining dry. Unsettled conditions are likely to return into the new week, with rain and strong winds arriving from the west.

    “Temperatures generally close to average, but locally warm mainly in the north and west, and feeling warm in the sunshine, but still cool by night. Settled weather then returns, likely bringing drier conditions to western areas.

    “Cloudier conditions and showers may remain in the east.

    “Temperatures generally above average, but likely to be normal to rather cool in the northeast.”

  • UK weather outlook for Thursday and Friday

    Thursday will be mainly dry and bright with long spells of spring sunshine however some patchy cloud cover will tend to build at times and there is a slim chance of a shower.

    Friday will continue largely dry with lots of sunshine however it will be cloudy with rain outbreaks in Northern Ireland and northwestern England.

  • Today’s forecast

    A mostly dry and bright start to the day with early sunny spells however variable amounts of cloud will build during the day bringing a chance of showers which may merge into longer spells of rain and be locally heavy and thundery.

    Cloud will break and sunny spells will develop during the afternoon from the southwest.

  • ‘Uncertainty for the weekend itself’

    Speaking about the up-coming weather for the Platinum Jubilee, deputy Chief Meteorologist Helen Caughey said: “While it may be an unsettled start for some with showers for northern and western areas, many areas will see generally settled conditions over much of the long Jubilee Weekend, with plenty of dry weather and good spells of sunshine.

    “Temperatures will be widely into the low 20s, feeling warmer in the sunshine, although temperatures will drop off quickly into the evenings. 

    “The main source of any uncertainty for the weekend itself is to do with how far a plume of warm air to the south encroaches over southern areas of the UK.”

  • Met Office predicts sunny 19C for Jubilee on Saturday

    BRITS look set to bask in the sunshine this Saturday as the country celebrates the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

    The Met Office predicts temperatures will soar to 19C, providing the perfect conditions for street parties and other outdoor events.

    And it appears Her Majesty will kick off her Platinum Party at The Palace under clear skies as “sunny spells” brighten the UK.

    Showers will persist over the next few days, before the weather becomes “generally more settled”.

    Although still open to some uncertainty, Saturday will see patchy cloud and sunny spells – with highs of 19C.

    However, revellers have been warned light rain – mainly across the far north – could make an appearance, but it looks unlikely to dampen spirits.

    But the Met did suggest the far southeast could be hit by some heavier showers, depending on how a plume of warm air develops.
