Punters heading to Reading And Leeds Festivals this weekend should prepare themselves for a mixed weekend of weather, with both sites also almost certain to get some rain.

According to Metcheck, the festival's Reading site will be mostly dry throughout the weekend, with rain only predicted to fall tomorrow evening (August 24), meaning Paramore and The Cure may well end up playing to a damp crowd.

Saturday (August 25) and Sunday (August 26) are set to be dry and modestly warm, with temperatures of up to 17 degrees.

However, up in Leeds, it's a different story with rain predicted to fall on each day of the festival. According to the forecast, tomorrow will be dry up until early evening when rain is predicted to come down and may well give Foo Fighters a soggy crowd.

It is then predicted to rain all day Saturday and for most of Sunday, but is set to stop in the evening, so Kasabian should be able to close the festival with a rain-free set.

If you're at Reading or Leeds this weekend, be sure to Tweet or Instagram your pictures to #NMEreading and #NMEleeds and the best will make next week's issue.
