Weather thread 2015

Recommended Posts

Obviously you've never been to Glastonbury on a wet year...

Quite. You can go hiking in pouring rain no problem with the right gear on, but add 180,000 people and wanting to sit down occasionally over 5 days to the equation and your raincoat doesn't quite make up for the weather any more.

Long range forecast is predicting a washout again this year with 3 electrical storms to pass over the site on the Sunday.

Best pack my inflatable boat then.

Or a hot air balloon enough hot air in the headliners thread to fill it. :).

Chuffed to f*ck! About time that the most lively, unpredictable and generally amusing thread appeared.

PS All praise the Weather Gods, just in case...

The only time I have been to Glastonbury was in 2013 and the weather was superb for pretty much the whole festival so I will be expecting the same again this year. I think I must be good luck as the two times I have been to T in the Park, the weather has been good also & If I can be good luck to the weather in Scotland then I must be blessed! :beach:

2013 was perfect. The rain on Thursday night stopped the dust. Last year was okay, but the Saturday was a bit of chore. Just remember getting increasingly agitated as it kept coming down and not being able to find shelter. But, like I said it was only the one day that was a bit wrong. The electrical storm on Friday didn't really give me too much bother.

Ah, the weather thread. That time again already. We'll be checking TV schedules for countryfile before you know it.

I always like to look at the met office visual satellite imagery for a few weeks in the run up to the festival. You get a feeling for the movement of the weather patterns and come the week of the festival you have a pretty clear view of what the weather will do. I've happily attended 2 years with no wet weather gear whatsoever on the basis of my belief (2010 and 2013, of which one was dry and the other it only rained Thursday evening with little ill effect) and never been caught without in any others.

If we thought the headliner thread had gone mad wait until 2-3 weeks before the festival in here.

Looking forward to it already.

There's no such thing as bad weather, just bad preparation.

As long as you have wellies and a waterproof packed the rest will take care of itself.

2010 was perfect! If it's anything like that year then we're in for a treat

Yeah you can. Rain and no lineup announcement. Not worth the cash.

Wellies?! God no! Gaiters and Walking Boots (that are water proof obviously :P). 2011 wasn't even that bad for rain but having to walk around in wellies killed me.

I am betting on 2010 style weather this year, we will be hunting for the bits of shade! Glorious!
