Weather Forecast for the Leeds Festival

The Leeds Festival is looming so that means rain right? Right! (but hopefully not too much).

Thursday will see a drop of rain in the form of light showers, but they won't amount to very much.

Thursday night is expected to be chilly, especially for camping.

Friday will see sunshine and mainly dry weather but a few showers are possible late afternoon/evening. Another chilly night will follow.

On Saturday expect a sunny morning but a few heavy, possibly thundery showers late afternoon/evening.

Saturday night will be really chilly due to clearing skies but that means a nice day on Sunday with long sunny spells.

Then it all goes pear shaped as rain edges in Sunday night to give a wet and windy day Monday.

Have a great time and stay up to date with the latest forecast here.
