After months of speculation as to whether rain would dampen the royal wedding, sun cream will be needed over brollies for the big day on Saturday.
Dry and seasonably warm weather is expected throughout the United Kingdom on Saturday as high pressure shields the area from any approaching storm systems.
A seasonably cool start to the day will greet thousands of spectators that arrive early for a good viewing spot near Windsor Castle as temperatures fall to around 7 C (45 F).
Anyone heading out early will want to be prepared with a jacket or other warm clothing.
Temperatures will climb quickly from the morning into the early afternoon before peaking around 20 C (68 F) by the middle of the afternoon.
A high near 17 C (63 F) is more common this time of year.
Light winds will prevail throughout the day, making it feel even warmer in the sunshine.
Instead of brollies, sun cream will be a necessity for spectators. After any patchy fog early, the strong sun will be out in full force on Saturday.
Warm and dry weather also graced the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in April 2011 as the high temperature was near 20 C (68 F).
