Met Office weather forecast

Day one of the festival was sunny, temperatures reaching almost 27C in nearby Yeovilton, but it’s now becoming more unsettled.

Met Office Chief Forecaster Paul Gundersen said: “Our advice would be to have raincoats at the ready for the rest of the festival. After a warm and, at times, sunny start to Thursday it will turn cloudier and there will be an increasing risk of thunderstorms through the afternoon and evening bringing a risk of torrential downpours”.

For Friday and the weekend, the weather will become cooler and more unsettled. The risk of heavy showers and thunderstorms continues in the Glastonbury area, and although these should be quick moving, some surface water might accumulate at times from the heaviest showers. Temperatures will return to near normal for the time of year, with highs likely around 18-20C by the weekend. It will become breezier over the weekend.

The unsettled pattern is expected to continue to dominate into the start of next week.
