Weather Forecast: Rain set for Download festival
Pack your wellies and waterproofs if you're heading to Donington
Rain is almost certain to hit this weekend's Download Festival, with the latest forecast predicting showers for each day of the festival.
According to the latest Met Office forecast, it is set to rain heavily tonight as people are arriving to set up camp, but will be dry throughout Friday (June 10) daytime.
Unfortunately the weather is then set to take a turn for the worst, with The Darkness' live comeback and Def Leppard's headline set likely to feature continual showers.
This will continue throughout Saturday (June 11) with added winds of up to 20 miles per hour expected to hit the site. Things will improve in the evening, with no rain forecast for System Of A Down's headline slot.
Sunday (June 12) will be better, with no rain or strong wins predicted for the daytime. But, once again, things will turn nasty in the evening, with light rain scheduled to hit Linkin Park's closing set.
