Glastonbury festival-goers could enjoy five days of sunshine, according to the latest weather forecast. Revelers might be lucky enough to be able to ditch the wellies and grab the sunscreen at Worthy Farm, with warm temperatures expected.
The BBC predicts five days of sunshine with a moderate breeze from Wednesday June 22 to Sunday June 26. And temperatures are expected to stay warm, with the first two days expected to be the hottest.
Wednesday could see highs of 22C, followed by 21C heat on Thursday. The rest of the weekend will still be warm, although temperatures will drop to 19°C on Friday and 17°C on Saturday and Sunday.
The Met Office posts a similar forecast from Wednesday to Friday, although its forecast does not reach the weekend. But its long-term forecast for the whole of the UK is also promising – although there are warnings of rain.
Its forecast for the first day of the festival from June 22 to July 1 reads: “To start the period it is likely to be cool and mostly cloudy in northern parts of the UK with some scattered rain or showers. Further south it is likely to be dry with temperatures closer to normal, feeling hot during sunny spells.
“Winds should generally be light, although stronger winds may affect the far north. Over the weekend, the most likely scenario is for clear sunny spells with occasional showers.”
