UK weather: Cloud and rain forecast for King’s coronation
London’s weather has been typically British during King Charles’s Coronation with a continuous band of downpours persisting over the city. The overcast skies and rain have kept temperatures cooler than usual, hovering around 13C, which is a few degrees below the expected range for this time of year. Now forecasters have warned that the gloomy weather is set to persist for the upcoming days.
Today is set to be the mildest day for a while as although there may be some isolated showers in parts of eastern England and Scotland’s higher ground, many regions will remain dry.
Western areas will experience a cloudy afternoon, but the Midlands, East Anglia, and southern England will continue to bask in sunshine until the evening.
Meanwhile, Northern Ireland will experience a shift in weather conditions, as another rain band moves in from the west, resulting in a wet afternoon and evening.
Inland areas of the South-East will enjoy relatively warmer temperatures, reaching around 20C, compared to the previous day.
However, the mild weather will not last long as on Monday, the majority of the country can expect a “washout”.
Netweather’s forecaster Ian Simpson said: “Monday looks set to be a washout for much of the country with the rain belt continuing to progress eastwards, producing a cloudy day with frequent outbreaks of rain.”
Northern Ireland will experience a wet and cloudy start, but it will brighten up later in the day with some scattered showers.
Meanwhile, parts of East Anglia will start the day dry with some sunshine, but rain is expected to arrive from the west in the afternoon.
Overall, Monday will be a washout for much of the country, except for some scattered showers in Northern Ireland.

As for the temperatures, Northern Ireland is expected to have the highest temperatures on Monday, with most places reaching around 18C.
However, for the rest of the country, temperatures will range between 13 and 15C.
In eastern areas temperatures may reach 18C before the rain arrives, Netweather revealed.
Looking ahead to the rest of next week, unsettled weather is expected to continue, but there is a chance that it will be bright and showery rather than cloudy and wet.
While there is some uncertainty, there is potential for the rain to clear slowly from the southeast on Tuesday, Netweather predicted.
Meanwhile, the Met Office was not so optimistic.
Looking ahead in the Met Office’s long range forecast, the weather service predicted continued downpours and thundery weather to continue during the week of May 11 to May 20.
The Met Office said: “A mixture of sunny spells and showers for most areas on Thursday and Friday.
“Showers heavy in places with a risk of hail and thunder. Likely turning cloudier with some more persistent rain into the far northwest. Into the weekend a northwest/southeast spilt is likely to develop.
“This will see a good deal of fine weather in the south and east with cloudier and sometimes wet weather across the north and west. Spells of rain may sink further south and east with time, but many southeastern areas remaining dry.
“The north/south split is likely to remain, with drier and sunnier weather in the south, and more unsettled conditions to the north.
“Possible strong winds at times in the north. Temperatures generally at or above normal for the time of year.”
