Queue to see Queen lying in state now has weather forecast – Metro.co.uk

Two of the country’s favourite pastimes have now been amalgamated into one – the weather and forming orderly queues.
Folks looking to brace the chilly weather and form an orderly queue to see the Queen’s coffin will be relieved to know it now has its very own weather forecast.
BBC Weather tweeted this morning at 6.53am: ‘Good morning! It’s a chilly start out there… even a bit of frost around for some of you.’
The tweet shows some very cold spots across the UK including Shap, Cumbria, which was -1°C and Benson, Oxfordshire which was 1°C – and then the Queue, which was 7°C.
The amusing addition of a new location to the weather forecast has not gone unnoticed by weather watchers on Twitter.
One person pointed out how ‘the queue has become its own entity’.
Good morning!

It’s a chilly start out there …even a bit of frost around for some of you

Thousands of mourners have joined a nearly four-mile long queue to reach the Queen’s coffin.
The line is currently close to full capacity and has reached Southwark Park, with the current estimated queuing time currently standing at 16 hours.
Temperatures plummeted to 7°C overnight, and similar temperatures are expected this evening with queue waiting times expected to exceed 24 hours again.
In the line many people have made friends, spending hours talking about the reasons they have decided to visit the Queen’s coffin and places they have travelled from.

Paramedics have already treated 435 people along the route of ‘The Queue’ and its surrounding areas over the past two days.
As the weekend hits, more people are expected to pay their respects by visiting the Queen lying in state while they are off work.
Her state funeral will be held on Monday.
