RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2018, warm and hopefully dry
There are still some day tickets left for Thursday and Friday. Saturday is all sold out. The Queen visited on Wednesday along with a whole host of celebrities. Monty Don is there. He said on Twitter "It makes me homesick for my garden, weather and the smell of wet dogs." as showers passed by on Wednesday. Overall the rest of this week looks fine and warm, with heat to end the week as temperatures reach the mid-twenties Celsius, into the 80s Fahrenheit.

The red dot is Chelsea. By this evening the main threat from these showers, which will be thundery by then will be for SW Britain not London. So forecast apps will be showing the potential for rain showers, but it doesn't mean they are definitely for that location.
It will continue to be warm today and bright with hazy sunshine at times. The winds are light and it will feel close and humid as temperatures reach the high teens. If any proper breaks appear in the clouds, then the temperatures will leap up into the twenties. There is a risk of showers. Hopefully, most will miss Chelsea today.
Warm, sunny and dry. Heavy thundery showers are forecast to move across England to the north of London, so it should be a dry day with sunny spells and light winds. Top temperatures around 24C.
Another warm, bright and hopefully dry day but it will be blustery. A fresh NE wind is forecast which sometimes rustles the displays and plant stalls. Again there will be heavy thundery showers lurking but the risk looks to be away to the west and south so not for Kensington & Chelsea. It may feel a bit oppressive and close at times. Up a notch to 25C.
There will be moderate Pollen count levels as the grass season begins to take off. Worth taking a hat and putting on the sunscreen as we have moderate UV levels even through the cloud cover. Whether you are visiting in person or just watching the coverage on the BBC, it's always a truly beautiful, inspirational show.
