Brits are in for a hot Platinum Jubilee with highs of 23C and plenty of sunshine, but there’s always a risk of a shower.

Heavier rain is expected to ease from the start of the week through Thursday and temperatures are also expected to rise later in the day, but forecasters still say the outlook is unpredictable.

The UK will enjoy a four day Bank Holiday weekend from Thursday 2 June to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s 70th year on the throne.

Events are being planned across the country to mark this historic occasion.

BBC weather forecaster Nick Miller said: “It’s going to be drier than at the moment but if you have outdoor plans and street parties there’s still a chance of showers, first Thursday, Friday in northern areas, then more towards the south of the country into the weekend United Kingdom.”

The outlook remains uncertain and there is a possibility of rain

In the run-up to the holiday, there is a lot of rain and cool temperatures.

“Lots of cloud, lots of showers and it’s really quite chilly for the time of year with a depression across the UK,” Mr Miller said.

“Not the strongest low pressure area we’ve had and in fact the winds are quite light which means the rain will hold up when we get it. And there will be plenty of places to avoid a shower or two as we drive through Tuesday.

It will gradually get warmer as the week progresses

“The heaviest will be in the east of Scotland and the east side of England, some with hailstorms letting more sun through.”

It’s a similar outlook for Wednesday with showers but it will start to warm up before Thursday’s outlook improves even further.

The prospects for the weekend are that there will be less rain in the north than in the south

Mr Miller continued: “For many places it’s looking drier, less showers, more sunny spells but you can’t rule out the possibility of this disruption although that particular outlook for Thursday doesn’t look that way but there is a possibility that in the Showers and rain showers rolling in from the northwest later in the day.”

He pointed out that the “sunshine or shower question mark” will continue on Friday and into the weekend, but sunshine means temperatures will hover in the low 20C and peak at 23C.
