Here's the 00Z run through!

Pressure: Building to a high through the week before beginning to fall after in the early hours of Saturday. This again remains really consistent, with low pressure NOT winning.

Precipitation: We're now CLEAR OF RAIN THROUGH THE WHOLE FESTIVAL. Any sign of rain for today would be nothing more than a bit of drizzle even if it arrives. Brilliant for drying the overnight rain. Same on Sunday, even if it were around it would be drizzle.

This is what it looks like when the gates open:

Max Temperature (BBC app, Accuweather temp in brackets): Tuesday 19-20 (21, 21), Wednesday 20 (21, 21), Thursday 21-22 (24, 24), Friday 23 (26, 26), Saturday 25-26 (26, 22), Sunday 19-20 (21, 20)

Summary: GFS has dropped two degrees to 23 on Friday. But then GFS has flipped to agree with the BBC on Sat at 26 degrees, while Accuweather has tracked right down to be in agreement with the old GFS at 22 degrees.

Reminder that there will be a very good breeze all weekend - especially Wednesday to Friday. This might well be a bonus, but do be cautious as a breeze can lull you into a false sense of security vis a vis the sun and sun burn! Also, we don't really want that dust kicked up too much!

We've only gone and won it.

One more in-full update left for me!

Sterling work!! 

See you all in the fields 🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞

Always worth having in the car if you can - it's still Britain, five days is a long time for a forecast to hold. But at worst it's a bit of a wet out not a mudfest

Looks like we’re in for one of those rarest of things – a completely dry Glasto!   Seen only  two of those – 1995 and 2010.   Now we have a third in 24 years.

Not bothering with wellies now then. Walking shoes and scruffy trainers the order of the day. Thanks all, what a ride it's been. Have a great Glasto everyone, have a feeling this could be the best yet!!
