Saturday, May 6 2023 saw the coronation of King Charles III, with many gathered huddled under brollies outside Buckingham Palace to pay respects to the new king. Rain continued throughout much of the coronation ceremony, and even led to a scaled-back flypast over Buckingham Palace.
It is starting to become a tradition that whenever a royal event occurs, those in London are subjecting to standing out in the rain.
The cloudy and damp conditions again led to people in coats and umbrellas outside Buckingham Palace. However, data shows that the Queen’s coronation didn’t bring quite as much rainfall, with 2.6mm recorded at Kew.
Temperature data was not as rigorously recorded in 1953 as now, but there has been a warming trend in 30-year climate average temperatures and for the period of 1961-1990 the climate average was 14.61C for Kew Gardens in London. In comparison, the 30-year average for 1991-2020 for Kew is 15.74C, about a degree warmer.
Going through the remainder of the week, the rather damp trend looks to continue across the Aylesbury Vale with further heavy showers likely in places today and tomorrow. A potentially drier interlude will be possible on Friday before more unsettled conditions return for the weekend.
