New Years Eve 2011
December 31, 2010 by staff
As warmer temperatures tempt the crowds in the streets, most regions of the United Kingdom should have a blanket of clouds with drizzle, although the evening is expected to stay dry.
And with the mercury reaching 4C (39.2F) after weeks of heavy snow and subzero temperatures, organizers expect hundreds of thousands of people to join New Year festivities in London.
Tony Conlan, forecaster for MeteoGroup, the weather division of the Press Association, said: “It will remain cloudy and misty drizzle on most unequal country, but it will be largely dry.
“Temperatures will not be too bad, usually 2C to 4C (35.6F to 39.2F) above freezing into midnight.”
Final preparations for the show in the capital are under way with a British company pyrotechnics used for the first time in the fireworks.
Cambridgeshire Kimbolton Fireworks Company will be behind the show at the London Eye, which will also be music for the first time with BBC Radio 1 DJ Nihal providing the soundtrack.
London Mayor Boris Johnson said the “dazzling” display would include the “dynamism, color and energy” of the city in front of 250,000 people expected along the Thames.
The celebrations continue with a parade on January 1st of the 25th year through New London. Cloudy and hazy is expected that half a million people are expected to pack the streets of Westminster to the free event.
More than 8,500 musicians, cheerleaders and performers, including those of the 20 London boroughs will take part in the parade with a 2.2 mile special message from the queen to start reading the proceedings.
