As the nation awaits King Charles’ coronation on May 6, many in Sheffield may be wondering if the weather will cooperate with their outdoor plans, including whether this will interfere with their coronation party plans, which some have been planning for months.
According to the Met Office, the weekend is set to be a mixed bag of sunny spells interspersed with scattered showers and the possibility of heavy rain. The Met Office said although the first part of this week will remain dry with temperatures reaching 19°C in most parts, Sheffield will experience some heavy rain as it heads towards the weekend.
Met Office deputy chief forecaster, Steven Keates, said: “On Saturday we will see showers developing from late morning in some central, eastern and northern areas, but also with some sunny spells through the day.
“Winds will remain light away from the far north where gusty winds will begin to ease. Highs of 20°C are possible in London in any sunshine, with mid to high teens possible elsewhere. With celebrations continuing through the Bank Holiday, Sunday will see areas of rain breaking up into heavy, possibly thundery showers for many parts of England and Wales.”
