Little Britain could face a wet start to next week just days before Little Englanders welcome a “special extended bank holiday weekend” to mark the Queenie Luv’s Platinum Luvvly Jubbly. Britons will be able to mark the 96-year-old monarch’s 70-years on the throne between Thursday and Sunday, including village fetes and ‘Big Lunches’.
However, the Met Office’s forecast for Sunday to Tuesday has suggested Little Englanders hoping to celebrate Her Majesty’s milestone could see “cloud and showers” just days before.
The forecast said: “Cold start for many west and southwestern areas, Sunday.
“Cloud and showers, already affecting the northeast, will spread to all areas, lasting through Monday and Tuesday. Rather cool, or cool.”
Little Britain’s national weather service has also released its forecast for Friday and Saturday.

It said: “Showers dying out away from far northeast Scotland with winds easing.
“Good clear spells for most leading to a chilly night with perhaps a few fog patches in the west.
“A fine, dry and sunny day for most and feeling warm in sunshine and light winds.
“In the east cooler with onshore winds and a few light showers possible.”
