There are lots of weddings this time of the year, and the most noteworthy one (besides yours if it’s happening this weekend), is the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle over in England on Saturday. Of course nobody wants bad weather for their wedding, but what if it rains this weekend at Windsor Castle?
The good news is that it doesn’t appear that there will be any rain; as a matter of fact, the Brits’ weather looks infinitely better than ours does in Boston this weekend.
Since weather generally moves from west to east or from the south to the North in the northern hemisphere, England is often the focal point of storm systems coming off the Atlantic. But they’re currently in a pattern in which high pressure is remaining in control, not only keeping rain out of the forecast but bringing quite a bit of sunshine and certainly no London Fog.
While the ceremony takes place at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor, there will be An opportunity for the public to see the royal couple on the steps similar to what Harry’s brother and his wife did back when they got married.
Temperatures this weekend will around 20 degrees Celsius or in the upper 60s. Londoners can expect a blend of clouds and sunshine with the sun likely the dominating feature in the sky. I’m sure for those of you watching this wedding on television they will be talking about the perfect weather.
The royal couple may even step into the sun on the steps of St. George’s Chapel, as Harry’s brother and wife did at their own wedding.
No sun here in the Colonies
I wish I could say our weather was going to be equally as nice on Saturday, but unfortunately the frontal system which has been moving back and forth the past few days will still be a player. As a matter of fact, a low-pressure area will develop to our south Friday night and move through or to the west of New England during the day on Saturday, bringing steady rain.
I’m expecting anywhere from half an inch of rain to an inch and a half of rain Saturday. The track of the storm may be far enough west to allow a few dry hours, but overall it won’t be a nice day and many outdoor activities will be postponed. The morning looks like the wettest period, and if you have an early tee time, it looks like you’ll have to just sit by the television and watch two people you’ve never met get married in all that sunshine.
