Reading & Leeds Festival and Notting Hill Carnival are expected to experience showers.

Both the Reading & Leeds Festival and the Notting Hill Carnival are likely to be impacted by showers during the upcoming weekend. The Met Office has indicated the potential for thunder and lightning at the Reading and Leeds festivals on Saturday, as large crowds gather for these major English events.

According to Jonathan Vautrey, a meteorologist at the Met Office, there is a reasonable likelihood of showers passing over both Leeds and Reading throughout the day. Leeds, in particular, falls within the yellow warning area due to expected light winds in the northeastern part of England. This could result in slower-moving showers that may lead to localized flooding and minor disruptions in Leeds.

While both Leeds and Reading have the potential for lightning and thunder on Saturday, the main concern is rainfall. The chances of lightning decrease in Leeds on Sunday, but heavy downpours are still likely, possibly merging into prolonged periods of rain. On Sunday, Reading is expected to have several sunny intervals in the morning, followed by showers moving in from the West before subsiding in the evening.

The Notting Hill Carnival will experience a situation similar to Reading on Sunday, with showers anticipated from around midday onwards. Despite the showers, sunny spells are expected in between, making it not a complete washout in London over the weekend.
