Weather thread 2011

Recommended Posts

Just had a call from daughter on site. The mud was *BAD* at the gates and around the Main Market areas yesterday. But no real problems where she is camping in Pennards. She also says that what mud there is is drying out fast. But being a typical teen she hasn't ventured far from her tent on Pennards today so this report is strictly local to that area of the site.

Cloudy but quite warm in Park Field now. A few ugly looking clouds about, but still no rain today so far. Is there any chance the Metoffice could be wrong? Please?

Well, those 258 pages were bollox then! Quite chuffed with the weather all in all. Jimmy Cliff singing "bright sunshiny day" day in the grey windy drizzle was priceless! Legend.

Friday nite was grim, I nearly slept in the pussy parlure as I couldn't face trekking home in the lashing rain! BUT overall the weather wasn't that bad, and we were blessed with a seriously glorious Sunday with insanely warm temperatures right thru the night, I was sat on flagtopia in a t shirt at sunrise which seemed very strange but totally made up for the mud

Friday night was indeed very grim, sustained rain, which was heavier through the night.

Will not be following JackOne in 2013.

A real mixed bag this year.

To me it felt like each day encapsulated the conditions of a previous festival:

Wednesday - HEAVY shower at annoying moment = 2005

Thursday - Rain early but generally quite decent = 2008

Friday - Will it ever stop pissing it down? = 2007

Saturday - Thank God it's stopped pissing it down = 2009

Sunday - Scorchio = 2010 (and then some!)

Don't give the forecasters too hard of a time for failing to call it. I'm just pleased the "severe weather warning" (can't remember which day but it was for 12 hours of heavy rain) that out campsite stewards were warning us about never came to pass!

I have epic sunburn right now. Sunday must have been hotter than 2010?! Factor 30 every 20 minutes plus a parasol and a hat and still I am luminous?! :blink:

A comedian at the Cabaret tent summed it up well

'to all you newbies you have experianced every extreme weather condition Glastonbury could throw at you within 3 days'

Friday - Pneumonia

Saturday - Trench Foot

Sunday - Heat Stroke

This year proves what a complete waste of time analysing, debating and trying to predict what the weather will be. BBC had white cloud forecast on Friday morning! NME confirmed a 'rain free Glasto' on Wednesday. You will never accurately predict the weather, best thing to do is forget about it and get on with it.

I remember the weekend that Glastonbury would have been held in the last gap year in 2006 was absolutely superb!
