Would make ticket day 2016 less stressful.....

True.

On the law of averages, are we due a good year this year or a shite year? 5 years since 2010, but 5 years before that was 05.......

My hairy ballbag it can't. Unless Worthy Farm have a portal to the centre of the earth they can open up at will.

The few nice bits of sun we've had this spring means June will be 2007 all over again. An unmitigated disaster.

How could I forget the one and only trusted and respected weather forecaster in the universe.

BIG DOG

Really need to buy some Bonios as a apology.

That would ensure plenty of slobbery kisses and regular updates for the thread.

Cor blimey what a scorcher, BBC says we are in for a heatwave!!!!

http://m.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-32534488

Unfortunately it doesn't say what month, August knowing our luck!

I have been checking the weather all week for this Saturday, first BBQ of the year, and it's said rain all week then today I've checked and it says it's going to be dry! I think we'll only really know how it's going to be for Glastonbury on the Tuesday, and it will still probably change towards the end of the week like it did last year as none of the weather geeks predicted bloody hailstones!

Forget the countryfile forecast.

9.55pm every day on the BBC news channel they have a long range forecast - so you can see what it suggested from 10 days before and get updates right up to Tuesday night.

In the 9 years I've been going to the festival I swear the weather is normally always dry on the Wednesday.

It has been since 2007 except one Wed morning when it chucked it down for a bit around 09:00.

I remember getting a right old soaking putting the tent up in 2011 on the Wednesday morning...

I remember that well, I put the last peg in and the heavens opened, we quickly dived in the tent and thumbed through the magazine for an hour or so until it cleared, then put the other 2 tents up.

4-5 days before the festival. Any weather report before then isn't within an asses roar of being accurate.

We weren't so lucky. We were just coming through Gate B when the heavens opened! Got drenched walking down Muddy Lane. Having been up most of the night and in a queue for the previous 4 hours it was a right miserable start to the weekend and usually the weather doesn't overly bother me.

Anyone got any decent footage of the storm from last year? All I remember is being cooked at De La Soul and then not much later these amazing dark clouds rolled in and swept across the valley. Might have made life difficult for a bit but it was a pretty impressive show of nature!

2011 wasn't I remember having to get help in Disabled camping due to really strong wind and rain.

Btw it was not me having the strong wind :)

Normally dry most days tbh, but it only takes a couple of hours of rain at the wrong time to ruin everything for a couple of days. 2011 is the ideal example with it pissing it down while everyone was queueing to get in - the queues descended into muddy hell, the routes out from them got hammered very quickly and it took most of the festival to recover. There have been other times we've had a couple of hours first thing in the morning and it's all been soaked up and gone before the crowds hit and barely been noticed

From this far out it's all to play for - statistically 'above average' is good but says very little sadly. Could still be hail and storms that weekend. I remain hopeful - the trend remains for a good start to summer.
