Good news Carnival-goers: it's going to be sunny this weekend
David Tett

Carnival officially turns 50 this year and in honour of the milestone, the sun has decided to show its face, with predictions of glorious weather set to last from mid-week until the close of the bank holiday. Hallelujah! 

Blustering winds and heavy rainfall might not be enough to put a damper on the festivities, but Notting Hill sure does look shinier and happier when the sun is out. Here's the evidence.

Just look at those feathers and sequins glistening in the sun at Carnival 2015.
