Brits to bask in 22C for Platinum Jubilee as Queen marks major milestone

Sunny skies and spells of dry weather are likely for parts of England, just in time for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

The Queen is set to celebrate 70 years on the throne, and Royal Family fans will be hoping for warm temperatures so that celebrations aren't squandered.

From Thursday, it would appear that the weather will settle into spells of dry and fine weather, primarily in the south of England.

But for those celebrating further up the country, in Scotland and Northern Ireland, some showers can be expected intermittently, with the Met Office issuing a warning over "unsettled showers" this weekend.

Central and northern areas of England are likely to see showers on Friday also, but southern areas can expect 22C heat and a nice chance of sunshine.

Met Office 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."

Caughey continued: "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.

"At present it’s looking like it could glance the far southeast on Saturday and Sunday, which would bring with it the risk of some showers, although the heaviest showers look likely to be contained over the continent."

There is still some uncertainty for Saturday and Sunday's weather, when the peak of the Jubilee celebrations are planned, but spots of light rain could affect the north and heavier showers could affect the south.
