Temperatures in Britain to reach as high as 24C in run-up to Kings Coronation

King Charles III's coronation weekend could herald some fine weather with highs of 24C, following a cool spring that has seen Brits endure colder temperatures.

According to forecasters, May will spark the return of a warmer period for many, with the monarch's historic event providing some pleasant weather for those camping out on the streets of London or celebrating outside with friends and neighbours at street parties.

WXCharts' weather maps show a chance of some warmer European air pushing up to the south-east of England at least, with temperatures set to peak in counties such as Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk on May 3.

In central London, thermometers will only shave off one degree, with humid 22C conditions expected to last until May 4, a couple of days before Charles is crowned when the weather is expected to remain dry, at least in the capital.

However, outlooks for this Bank Holiday weekend are not certain just yet, with the big event more than a fortnight away, with long-range forecasts suggesting a mixed outlook.

It leaves Britons unsure of having to break out the shorts or keep the thermals on hand as the weather decides what to do.
