Despite reports that thunderstorms and showers were expected for next weekend's Glastonbury festival, forecasters now predict that the event's weather will be sunny and dry.

The Guardian reports that most weather forecasting services have said that Somerset will be sunny, dry and warm over the weekend of June 28-30, with average day time temperatures of 19C. However, rain is expected to hit the Worthy Farm site over the coming week, meaning that ground conditions still might be muddy come next weekend. There also might be slight rain on Thursday 27 and possibly on the afternoon of Sunday 30, however the previously predicted thunderstorms are now unlikely.

Last week Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis clarified the festival's alcohol policy after an email was sent out to ticket holders causing confusion as to whether festival-goers would be allowed to transport alcohol onto the festival site using wheelbarrows or trolleys.

"In reference to the email about alcohol that went out to Glastonbury 2013 ticket holders this morning, my personal preference is for people that come to our festival to drink much less!" Eavis wrote on the festival's website. "However, Glastonbury remains the only major festival that allows people to bring their own alcohol in, and you are still OK to bring your own alcohol through the gates, providing it's just for your own use (whether it's on a trolley or not)."
