BBC Weatherman Ian Fergusson's forecast for BRADLEY STOKE, FRIDAY:

"A generally cloudy but dry start, with temperatures around 10 degrees by 9am. Through the morning, I expect a low risk of showers - most of these will have passed-by further northwards - so it should remain dry into the start of the street party, with an steadily-increasing number of brighter or sunny spells developing towards midday and early afternoon. A moderate NE breeze across the Jubilee Centre grounds; eventually feeling pleasantly warm in the sunnier interludes as temperatures climb to around 17-18C later. Through the rest of the afternoon, we'll be watching for signs of showers developing to the east, some turning heavy and possibly thundery. These will migrate westwards to give an increasing risk of a heavy downpour during the afternoon, but it will be hit-or-miss in terms of how many (if any) actually cross Bradley Stoke. Clearly, any thunderstorms will offer a lightning safety risk to crowds gathered on the open area of the Jubilee Centre, so prudence is required should any nearby thunder become audible. Any showers slowly fading through the evening, but continuing with plesant sunny spells either side of these....in other words, rather a weather lottery!"
