We’re sorry, Glastonbury ticket-holders but there’s no easy way to say it: it looks like this year’s festival is going to be a total washout.
In the run-up to the 2016 event, rain is forecast to fall on the Worthy Farm site, and the Met Office have even issued a ‘yellow’ warning for the coming days. *gulp*
While it’s too early for a specific, daily forecast, the Met Office have issued their predictions - though we’re not sure they’d appreciate them being called that - for the festival weekend.
The forecast warns of “breaks of rain across the northwest will gradually push across all parts through Sunday and into the start of the week”.
It continues: “The remainder of the week will continue unsettled and often windy with bands of rain pushing east, these interspersed with brighter, though showery conditions and the best of any drier weather in the east. Into the weekend and following week it will remain unsettled with the most frequent spells of rain across northwestern parts and generally drier and brighter in the southwest.”
The BBC are in agreement, predicting rain for Wednesday 22 June, when most festival-goers will be arriving, and “sunny intervals” the following day.
Hmmm. Best get those wellies and raincoats out then.
A little rain has never managed to dampen (sorry) spirits at Worthy Farm before though, and with a line-up that includes everyone from Adele to Jeremy Corbyn, there’s something for everyone.
