It's quite chilly in London, rainy too. So a rain coat, an umbrella, and clothing that can be layered.

For the rest, you should check 10 day forecasts on the web.

Since you won't be able to exactly determine the weather, and certainly it will change from city to city - taking clothes you can "layer" works best. A mix of pants or skirts, tops of various weights and sleeve lengths, light weight jacket or cardigan, 2-3 pairs of comfortable walking shoes, sandals, or sneakers (1 will be on your feet at any time). A small folding travel umbrella or rainproof windbreaker w/ hood is probably a good idea.

"It's quite chilly in London, rainy too" -- or not. It could be anything in London from cool to warm to hot, rainy to glorious - and all on the same day

But then you simply cannot guess what the weather will be in any of those cities (except Rome/Florence should be warm to hot).

You are going to be moving really fast and will seldom have a chance to change clothing during the day. So definitely take things you can layer. You will not need any winter type clothing and really don't need an actual rain coat. Even if it is rainy in any of those cities - a small folding umbrella or a light weight rain jacket/poncho is the most you'd need. If it is cool & rainy - just wear an extra layer under the poncho.

I mentioned chilly/rainy because it is actually quite miserable weather here at the moment. Wind and rain, with some sunny intervals and they are saying it is likely to stay that way over the next few days. But yes, the need is for something waterproof, and also depends on what you will be doing in London on the tour.
