This is 2007 all over again.

Awww 😀

You should have kept some powder dry, rather than going through the starting gates blustering about carnage, game over and blood baths.

Now it's all gone a bit weak.

A quick reminder of what the U.K. Met Office model midnight run predicts. 
Friday - rain coming in during late afternoon/evening …

Intensifying somewhat overnight and finally getting out of the way by Saturday lunchtime…

then by Sunday we’re back to sunshine and showers…

and as ever with showers, we might get a complete maelstrom or we might get nothing at all, just a case of crossing fingers and hoping for the best…

Just out of curiosity how did the weather go on the last 2 delay festivals

2020 looked perfectly sunny, then forecast changed last minute to on and off showers and lower temps (just like this year).

For most of Southern England Sat and Sun were pretty blustery, cold, and showery, but people living in Pilton reported that it missed the worst and would have been a pretty good weekend. 

2021 was nice bar some major rain on Sunday pm / night. 

But generally both pretty good.

There’s only one @The Nal . Everyone else is a pale imitation

Now I’m trying to decide how many warm layers to take. Even bringing beanie and gloves. 
 

Figure if I pack it all, I won’t need it. 
 

please send extra good vibes for Saturday weather- it’s my birthday!

I’m pretty sure they are just fucking with the readers Of this thread. Giving with one hand and taking away with the other until we are totally under their control 

You're probably right, they've changed back again now.

Ugh the fucking teases! Still doesn't look that bad in fairness, some showers hitting us at some point on both days but it's hardly torrential rain they're predicting.

Tokens?

Yes, @waynewdk back in the day, the Brother's Bar would do a thing where they gave away tokens to get free pints prior to the festival.  Some years they were like poker chips, another they were bracelet things.  Sadly they stopped doing that quite a way back now.

Thursday afternoon 2007 was when the rain started.  We were sitting near the Brothers Bar, two of us had gone to get a round in, and had some tokens, and ended up walking away with more than we could carry, so we started chatting to people in the vicinity and sharing our good fortune out.  That turned into a couple of hours of yacking (And leaving our friends thirsty) but it was lovely, but it was by then that the skies had turned dark, and soon after we took shelter as it began...

And then the coats came on, to be taken off maybe three times a day...to be put back on 6 mins later...

2007 makes 2016 look like Club Tropicana 🤣

Quite, 2007 was either huge lakes of liquid mud you had to wade through or horrendous thick sticky mud that was tough to walk through. On the Monday morning we got back to car at 10:30am and only got out of the car park (pushed by a tractor) at 10pm. 2016 was an absolute stroll in the park compared.

Yep, 6.5 mm is around 65% of 1 cm. Definitely less.

Thanks for the confirmation… Relieved to have it confirmed that 65% is, indeed, less than 100%.

The two setup days weds and thurs are fine by all accounts with no rain to be had and the rest just showers......but who cares when youve got the music to distract you fri-sun anyway....as long as weds/thurs are fine then all good

And half a truck-load of booze 🤣

Come on then weather boffins, let’s hear your predictions.

In percentage terms, will there….

A. Be any rain at all

and

B. Will we have a deluge which renders the site a mud bath

The midday run of the German ICON is now out.   It agrees with many of the models and brings showers and thunderstorms up from France on the Thursday night. These will be very hit and miss, we may get loads, we might get nothing.

as with every other model now, it brings the rain in on Friday, but a little earlier than some models…so it might have actually moved through in time for Billie…

it then gives us a showery day on Saturday, with a significant lump of rain heading up over SE England - one to keep an eye on…

then it leaves the low sitting over the U.K. on Sunday, so another day of sunshine and showers, though more organised bands of rain can not be ruled out.

What is certain, is that it won’t be a dry Glastonbury…

GFS 12Z rolling out. Nothing over Pilton directly but more rain spreading from the South on Thursday evening. 

Friday has a band of rain but most missing the site, but there's stuff going over Wales that's fairly fruity and very near.
