Glastonbury 25th - 29th June

Thursday: Make the most of the fine, bright morning as thicker cloud starts to roll in throughout the afternoon with a chance of heavy showers cropping up from lunchtime. Highs again around 19/20C but feeling cooler in the showers.

Friday: Likely to be our most unsettled and meteorologically lively day of the festival - heavy, perhaps thundery showers and occasional bright spells. Highs of 19C but again cooler in the showers.

Saturday: A cool night for camping and then a chilly start to the weekend. Showers and some brightness again for Saturday but the showers, whilst still heavy and slow moving at times, are less likely to be thundery. With a touch more brightness around, highs could reach 20C.

Sunday: Looking significantly better for the second half of the weekend - drier and brighter weather on the cards. The odd shower can't be ruled out however and it will feel cooler despite the more cheerful weather. Highs around 17/18C.
