What is the weather forecast during the Notting Hill Carnival?

Notting Hill Carnival will take place on Sunday 26 August and Monday 27 August in West London.
The latest forecast for the area suggests that revellers will luckily manage to avoid any spells of heavy or persistent rain.

The general picture across all three days looks set to be a typically late-summer mix of sunshine, cloud and a change of a light shower.

Temperatures will also be about average for this time of year, with highs around 18C-20C.

And light winds and light cloud cover will also help with festivities.

There is the chance on Sunday evening of more rain — but that should hold off until after the parades have wrapped up.


The Met Office website says: “Saturday bright and drier, perhaps with some showers.

“Sunday starting dry, bright and chilly, but turning wet and windy later.”

“For Monday, the Bank Holiday will probably become brighter with a few blustery showers around and a brisk breeze”.
