Reading and Leeds Festivals 2013: weather update
Temperatures will peak on the Friday but should stay warm and pleasant throughout the three-day event
The Berkshire bash, held at Little John's Farm in central Reading, should remain dry for all of Friday (August 23) before being hit by drizzle in the early hours of Saturday morning (August 24). Further showers are expected midway through Saturday afternoon but the rest of the day should then stay dry.
Some rain is also due in the early hours of Sunday (August 25) morning and then again towards the end of Sunday night, when Biffy Clyro will be headlining on the Main Stage. Temperatures will peak at a very warm 26C on Friday, but are unlikely to rise above 21 or 22C during Saturday and Sunday.
The Leeds event, held at Bramham Park near Wetherby, is unlikely to remain totally dry on any of its three days. Rain is expected at the beginning of Friday evening and then again in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Much of Saturday afternoon is likely to be marred by showers, too, though Sunday should be much drier with only one brief burst of rain expected midway through the afternoon. Temperatures should peak at 24C on Friday and then at a slightly cooler 21 orr 22C on the next two days.
