Heads It Rains, Tails It's Sunny...



"What on Earth is this?"

At the moment it's a lovely looking, but fairly empty site. However, over the next few months it's going to become the definitive guide (we hope) to what the weather's going be like at 2007's Glastonbury festival. It'll be updated alongside the weather boffins' predictions, as they happen, to ensure you get the very latest festival forecasts. The idea came from the brilliant Glasto Weather Watch, written by a very funny man named Bruce, who's getting married this year and will be too busy having lots of sex in foreign climes to keep an eye on the weather for the sake of some crusties.

"Hooray. So what are the weather folk saying so far then?"

Metcheck are first off the blocks this year with their camply-titled 'Super Long Range Weather Forecast' that predicts a 50% chance of rain and an average temperature of 23 degrees. Inspired work from Metcheck, presumably involving a coin toss and educated guesswork based on the fact it's usually fairly hot in June.
They're either keeping their cards close to their chest (which would be a bit pointless) or they clearly don't have a clue yet but can't say so just in case Sian Lloyd and other famous weathergirls laugh at them.

"Any chance you could sum up the latest weather predictions (6th April) with a fancy graphic?"

Yup, course. To demonstrate the latest leanings from the professional weather folk, we'll be using The Slideometer. See where the red bar sits? That's what they're currently expecting the weather to be like. For each new varying weather prediction, we'll update The Slideometer to reflect it and then whoop and high-five or sulk and whinge, depending on what it foretells.

    I wouldn't use my hard fought for tickets if there was not an excellent website giving up-to-the-minute, state-of-the-art weather predictions.

    Good work, Glasto Festival Forecast!

    I'm definitely going to buy some tickets to Glastonbury now that this site is here to tell me what the weather will be like.

    Sorry, sold out? Already?

    Oh :(

    Honk!

    The Weather Geese say it will be sunny.

    Well done weather-nuts. Great to know that we have someone filling in this year with some wildly inaccurate estimations ;)

    If it helps any I have noticed a trend of consistent weather (of some sort or other) during this part of June for over 6 years, possibly thousands. I'm going to stick my neck out and predict further weather again this year!

    Well done weathergits, we NEED a super dooper Glasto weather forecaster this year now that Bruce has left us because sex is more important to him.
    I also believe we will have weather of some sort this year.
    I hope this helps your weather forecast.
    Yours, with much love.
    Ulrika Johnson.

    The other people commenting above have no idea. There is not going to be any weather at all this year. So put that in your pipe and smoke it Ulrika or do I have to get Stan Collymore to come and explain it???

    The weather on the last weekend in June 07 will be very sunny. I know this because I have foolishly agreed to stand about for 8 hours at a time in whatever the weather may be and if it is very sunny I will have to wear a stupid hat, and this seems like something the universe would enjoy making me do.

    It's taken me days to find how to comment. That's long enough for me to have forgotten what I was going to say many times over. But, so chuffed am I to have found the button I'm just going to have to say something. It'll be weather related, I'll ask me uncle chaac.

    Weather. Don't worry about it. It'll be there, I've seen it in my crystal, innit!?

    Will it be moist in the morning?

    Love, Sian.

    Hello chums,

    We felt a bit bad after reading Mystically Megally Me's comment and discovering she'd had a bit of a frustrating search to find how to add a comment. Not that bad mind, but just about guilty enough to add a 'Leave A Comment' link under every weather update we do.

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Love Glasto Festival Forecast.

    Ps. Bet nobody can write their very own weather-themed Limerick...

    There was a young man called Rich,
    He's a ginge and a bit of a titch.

    He's predicting the weather,
    Whilst chomping on heather,
    But remember he is just a bitch.

    Not sure I've got the hang of this properly...

    Will they be showing the football?

    There definitely won't be a hurricane this year.
