article imageRoyal Wedding: Strong possibility of rain on Will & Kate's parade

London - Following more than a week of bright, warm sunshine and well above average temperatures, London could be hit by heavy showers on Friday, just in time for the royal wedding, according to forecasters.
In central London's Regent Street on Easter Monday, Union Jack flags and bunting adorn every establishment, fluttering under a gentle breeze, royal blue skies and unbroken sunshine. Temperatures have been well above normal for over a week now across southern England and Wales. At Wisley, a Surrey town 20 miles south of London, the temperature peaked at 27.8C (82F) on Easter Saturday. The Easter weekend has been confirmed as the warmest on record and April, the warmest month on record, according to the Guardian.
However, Friday could see the wedding hit by heavy showers both in central London and Kate's hometown of Bucklebury in the regal county of Berkshire.
Temperatures are expected to reach highs of around 16C (61F) on Friday, around normal for the time of year. Tom Morgan, a spokesman for the Met Office, told the Daily Mail, that the Royal Wedding day would feel much cooler in England and Wales following the recent heatwave.
