Glastonbury‘s weather forecast is getting more optimistic with every day. Although the festival is still a week away, the latest numbers suggest that the sun will be out, mostly, and the ground may even be dry.
Whereas Thursday’s forecast predicted moderate rainfall in the early part of next week, meteorologists are now calling it as a mixture of sun and cloud. BBC Weather lists daytime temperatures of up to 21C, rising to 24C after the festival kicks off, with barely a lick of showers.
WeatherOutlook is equally optimistic, predicting that Somerset will have a few days to dry out before any concertgoers arrive at Worthy Farm.
Jackone, Netweather’s dedicated Glasto wonk, now suggests people leave their wellies at home. “Hire [them],” he wrote. “You may be able to get your money back on unused goods.” While unsettled weather patterns mean there’s still chance of rain during the Glastonbury weekend, at least the danger of mudslides has waned.
