I did indeed, it is surreal seeing the local academy on a national advertising campaign!

Looks like it will rain all day tomorrow. Probably make the setting up a nightmare.
I see the bad moon arising.

Pretty happy with the current forecasts. Mainly cloudy with a bit of sun and possible showers, temperature won't go above 19 degrees which is nice. Might get a bit cold on the nights though so taking an extra blanket!

Yes, it's looking mostly quite nice. The wind might be a bit blowy on Friday though.

One night last year was cold, and the morning was positively autumnal. Taking sunscreen though- it's deceptive especially if it's windy

So we are now a day away and that forecast looks pretty decent imo. Friday we might see some rain 4pm-10pm but nothing too heavy.

I'm gonna take a risk and leave the wellies in the car....anyone else?

Would be nice if someone @ BOA could confirm how things are currently looking on the social sites. I'm only up in Derby and it's stopped raining here. Oh well, wellies at the ready for setup at the very least......

Yeah, I remember last year there were a few walk around site videos in the last couple of days before the festival showing what the conditions on the ground were like.

Well in London it's pissing down like there's no tomorrow atm, but currently forecast for DE12 8LN is only 10% chance of rain each day and cloudy with a bit of sun for each day. That'd do.

Not on the BBC website. That has it pissing down on Friday.

Pissing down? The BBC weather site I'm looking at just says a small amount of rain around 1pm and 5pm.

Google - cloudy with a bit of sun all weekend.
Been - okay all weekend with a bit of light rain on Friday
Metcheck - small amount of rain on Friday and Sat afternoon, otherwise fine.
TheWeatherOutlook - fine all weekend.

Looks like it won't be as warm as last year, but I don't know where people are getting the idea there's going to be a tropical monsoon from.

Pissing down = rain. A common phase.

Nobody mentioned a tropical monsoon.

Pissing down = heavy rain, not just any rain.

A couple of light scattered showers that are predicted to be about 0.1mm on a couple of the days, do not equate to "pissing down".
