Met Office forecast for Somerset Platinum Jubilee weekend

It's a mixed bag weather-wise in Somerset over the Platinum Jubilee weekend.

Thursday, Friday and Saturday should benefit from sunny intervals before it turns more overcast on Sunday.

It's expected to feel pretty warm though with highs of 18C/19C.

There's not much rain predicted either, other than a risk of showers on Saturday morning, the rest of the bank holiday is looking fine throughout - perfect for any street parties and garden parties planned.

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.

"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."
