Glastonbury weather watch – two days to go

It looks like you better pack your wellies

Weather forecasts predict Glastonbury will be very wet this weekend (June 22-24).

BBC Weather‘s forecast suggests that it will rain for the duration of the weekend, with particularly heavy rainfall on Friday (June 22).

Met Office forecaster Stewart Wortley said: “It will be cloudy with rain turning showery later in the day. Some of the showers could be heavy.

“Sunday might start with a little bit of sun but with showers developing, and then more general rain at the end of the day. So typical Glastonbury I think.”

Festival goers will be given the option of leaving their tents behind so they can be dried out and reused in impoverished countries.

The Give Me Shelter project, launched by the charity Global Hand, hopes more than 1,000 people will leave their camping equipment for countries such as Botswana and Sri Lanka, reports BBC News.
