The Weather Thread 2019

Recommended Posts

Emergency blankets it is - add to list for friend to buy who doesn’t have to work Monday. 

What a you u-turn? Is this because I bought those ridiculously comfy yet expensive wellies with a hiking boot sole?

I have been lurking on this thread for last few weeks, couldn’t remember my username until I logged onto an old phone I use for festivals which had username stored. 

My last post on efestivals was 19 June 2017 in the Weather Thread 2017, it read,

Part of my Glastonbury build up is watching this thread and enjoying the rollercoaster. Ultimately it doesn't matter as come rain or sun we are all to have a wonderful time. Thanks guys, see you at the front for Radiohead.

Still rings true today, apart from the Radiohead part...

Yep, I sense a quiet crawl down on plastic bottles. At the front of stages and in tents it’s going to be ridiculous - water and a fuck tonne of it will need handing out.

My new favourite saying !!!!!

The only issue with this is how bad the smell of the long drops will be in that heat!

They were bad enough in 2017.  ?

I’m sure we can live with that though for a warm dry Glasto!

Have you guys seen that NFR NFC thread? ???

We notice that The Weather Thread doesn't have it's own customised bin! ;)

Welcome to Glastonbury 20193A26E0F6-A33F-418F-9DC7-BF05F969EBEC.png.cbc93d8c2a7254c24b859cbaa1698cb0.png

This just made mine and my girlfriends bus journey! We're literally going over London Bridge right now and the sun is gloriously reflecting off of the Thames. Crazy to think the weather predictions are so varied.

Still waiting for The Nal to find a way to come and piss on our collective chips

I'm sure the GFS will do that one more time, before finally sticking on perfection on Monday.

This thread is still going to be hyperactive during the actual fest ?

Nah, none of us will give a shit once we are there!

So here's the 12Z. Can we start to go back up the rollercoaster?

Pressure: Building in through the week as we've always seen. But a huge improvement here as we no longer see the low winning out through Thursday. Here's a comparison between runs, and as you can see the right panel (latest run) keeps the UK in the red rather than the lower pressure orange creeping in and beginning to break up the high pressure.

The low pressure does start to make inroads by Friday evening, but it is now just a glancing blow for the south of the UK.

Precipitation: As usual, dry to tomorrow at 3pm rain the rain comes in but and sticks around to Monday lunchtime. None of it is the really heavy stuff we've seen in past runs though. 

This is how it looks when the gates open on Wednesday - the band of heavy rain shown is tracking the channel and doesn't hit the southwest mainland. There could be some morning showers for Somerset but shouldn't amount to much.

After those possible morning showers on Wednesday, there is no rain showing for the whole festival!

The first day of the festival is going to be sweltering (see below)! And it is showing as 25-26 degrees at midnight, and it's back to that again by 9am Saturday...

There is a heavy band of rain on Saturday which is showing as hitting north Wales and north west, so we just need to be wary of that.

Look at the temperature!

image.thumb.png.715783655b0c50efb5fcce149ea31d5a.png

Max Temperature: Sunday 19, Monday 20-21, Tuesday 23-24, Wednesday 23-24, Thursday 24, Friday 27-28, Saturday 29-30, Sunday 19-20


Summary: This is a massively improved run, and at last the GFS is getting back in line with the ECM. It's not quite aligning, as the low pressure does still fight back over the weekend. But now it does not bring the weather fronts in, though it is much cooler (will be a relief!) on the Sunday.

So bar perhaps some Wednesday morning showers, we are currently BACK ON TRACK. Let's hope the pockets of rain that are around, and currently not showing to hit the south west, stay the hell away.

See you back here at 11.20.....

I love you.

Already looking forward to the run after the next one, which will make me feel much better after the next run is horrible.
