Weather for Beautiful Days

Recommended Posts

The weather forecast is looking a bit iffy at the moment. According to Metcheck we'll be getting almost 200 kilometres of rain over the weekend and wind speeds approaching 400 mph.

Wellies and guy ropes not optional :P

Although with temperatures exceeding 500 degrees C it shouldn't be too cold at night.

Weird, that is the weather we actually had whilst packing up our tents at Chagstock!!! Gazebo gave up the fight, but as it was £9.99 and had survived two Glasto's and a number of other events, we were pretty pleased with it :D

I've been to all the Days so far and loved each and every one - despite the weather but I do like it drier have to admit. Metcheck seems to change hourly so look for the forecast from William of W on here?

Here's yer links folks. Prospects on a bit of a knife-edge so far ... possible at this stage that we'll escape an out and out washout though.

Metcheck for South West (later part of general forecast is for the whople of the UK, but that will get more SW specific the nearer to the time we get).

Metcheck for Exeter (this is a more useful forecast than the 'festival specific' one from Metcheck for 'Beautiful Days', linked to above, because with the Exeter one you get more detail, including for preceding days)

BBC general forecast (BEAR IN MIND though that the general monthly-forecast information for the next 4 weeks dates from the Monday just gone (10th) and will not be updated til next Monday, the 17th).

BBC 4-dayer for Exeter (will become more useful next week!)

Keep checking these links for updates, I have cautious hopes right now that prospects will improve a bit over coming days. Because there's currently some talk on the technical weather discussion forums (Model Output Discussion thread) at netweather.tv, that we may see improvements, with High Pressure playing a bit more of a role in the South of England.

But as you all know, anything can happen -- still too early to say yet ..... we're guarenteed nothing at this stage, either washout or scorcher.

I'll be more confident after the coming weekend. Back later!

Having had a quick look here and there, and a bit of messing about, I predict;

A number 7 on the Whetherweatherometer.

Mostly dry, not muddy, but a pretty miserable looking sky for the duration of the festival.

Temperatures by no means stellar, may scrape a 20'C if we're really lucky, but certainly not woolly jumper weather during the day.

Bizarre and unpredictable wind.

Might get a large slice of wet on the Sunday night or Monday morning. Great for packing up in.

So, our clothing summary says;

Need for waterproofs negligible.

Short or long sleeves during the day, nothing too heavy.

No point in a hat, it'll probably only get blown off.

Recommend yellow shaded sunglasses to make it look a bit nicer.

There you go.

Compare this against the crappy BBC forecast, and we'll see who comes out on top.... :P

Ahh! Now I am getting really excited when WoW is weather talking!!

What do you think of Accuweather? I have that and Metcheck loaded permanently on my phone and although they seem to change by the hour I am fairly confident that we wont be having as much moisture as last year.........maybe less than 2007..
