Glastonbury 2019 is now upon us, and the final weather forecast is as good as you could hope it to be.
Taking place June 26 – 30 at Worthy Farm at Pilton in Somerset, Glastonbury will see Stormzy, The Cure and The Killers head up a huge lineup that also includes the likes of Liam Gallagher, Janet Jackson, George Ezra, Miley Cyrus and Tame Impala, to name but a few.
Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern previously said that this could be the hottest Glastonbury on record, with hot and humid air drawn north from Europe predicted to push Pilton’s temperature past the festival’s previous record of 31.2°C. That record was set at the last Glastonbury in 2017. However, things look set to be slightly milder than that – but still very promising
Temperatures are expected to hit 24°C on today for early arrivals, and 25°C on Thursday with sunny skies. Temperatures will peak at 27°C for a sunny Friday when all of the major performances begin, before a slightly cooler weekend with temperatures dropping to 25°C on Saturday and 19°C on Sunday as a cold front pushes the hot air away; while still remaining dry throughout.
Meanwhile, The BBC reports that today will see mild conditions and sunny intervals with temperatures reaching a high of 22°, before Thursday will be a day of sunshine at 23°and Friday will be sunny throughout with temperatures peaking at 26°.

The Beeb say that it looks set to stay dry, warm and with periods of sunshine throughout the rest of the weekend, with temperatures at 25° on Saturday and 20° on the closing Sunday.
Accuweather‘s outlook is promising too. They report that Wednesday will see periods of sunshine and temperatures around 21° – staying like that but with more humid conditions and clearer skies on Thursday. They also claim that temperatures rise to around 26° on Friday while remaining mostly sunny, before hitting 22° on Saturday (with a chance of rain and thunderstorms) and 20° with sunshine on Sunday.
