Deputy Chief Forecaster Daniel Rudman spoke on the weather forecast for the weekend and suggested that fans may need their wellies for Sam’s performance: “From Friday onward the weather will become more unsettled.”
“There is a risk of heavy showers and thunderstorms in the Glastonbury area on both Friday and Saturday, although these should be quick moving, some surface water might accumulate at times from the heaviest showers.
“Temperatures will start to dip as we go through the end of the week returning to near normal for the time of year, with highs likely around 18-20C.”
