Sonisphere weather forecast latest – clear skies predicted for weekend
Sonisphere Festival is still set for a mostly dry weekend, with Saturday (July 9) and Sunday (July 10) predicted to be rain-free.

According to Metcheck, the Knebworth festival is still set to see rain throughout Thursday (July 7) and Friday (July 8), meaning Metallica, Slayer and Megadeth may have to contend with soggy moshpits.

But by Saturday (July 9) the sun is expected to shine on Bad Religion and Biffy Clyro with temperatures set to hold out at around 17° Celsius.

By the time Slipknot's headline set on Sunday (July 10) rolls around, punters may well have enjoyed temperatures of over 20° during the course of the day.

Sonisphere Festival takes place this weekend (July 8 - 10), and will be headlined by Metallica, Biffy Clyro and Slipknot.
