Glasto rain index

Does God not like rock music? Why did he see fit to dump so much rain on one tiny part of Somerset?

It has been truly awful at Pilton overnight between Thursday and Friday. Tent washed away; fields flooded; the stages struck by lightning.

We were expecting some thundery rain but nothing as bad as that!

If you are still yet to make your journey to Glastonbury, or if you are reading this after returning home - yes, some people have left the site - then take heart.

The weather is going to improve. The weekend weather should be OK.

Heavy thunderstorms may return to the site around 2pm on Friday afternoon, but these will clear within an hour to give a dry evening.

It is obviously a lot cooler than Thursday with temperatures of around 21 degrees Celsius.

Overnight we are expecting fairly cloudy skies with the chance of an occasional spot of light rain later - but nothing worse.

Saturday will be a mainly cloudy day. Some patchy light rain is likely during the afternoon but amounts of rain will be very small.

It will be a cool-ish day with temperatures only around 20 degrees.

Saturday night could be a little chilly, but the weather prospects for Sunday are much better. It will be a dry with some sunshine (at last!) and light winds.

Afternoon temperatures will be around 21 degrees and it will help to dry the site out.

The dry weather is expected to continue on into Monday - a dry, bright day to make your journey home.
