The gates of Worthy Farm open are officially open and away from the Glastonbury Festival line-up people's eyes are likely looking at one thing - the weather.

People going to Glastonbury Festival this week can expect to get a little wet as they arrive - but the event is not predicted to be a total washout.

According to ITV News West Country's weather presenter and meteorologist Charlie Powell, the festival is expected to get off to a "shaky start" with showers forecast on the first two days.

But the rain is expected to pass quickly to make way for a dry but humid weekend.

Charlie said: "Well the big day is here. For those of you already on site, congratulations.

"It's looking like a fairly showery start to the festival as we've been talking about for the last few days.

"We've already got some showers developing across parts of Devon and Cornwall, a couple of those creeping further east all the time and there is a thunderstorm warning in place from midday.

"Expect a couple of downpours to work their way across the site as we head through today, but really then from tomorrow it is an improving picture.

"High pressure builds in so a good deal of sunshine working its way through right the way through the weekend.

"A cloudier end to the festival, perhaps a little bit of rain as we head into the evening but you can see temperatures picking up a little bit but it looks pretty decent."
