Postby i0th » Fri Jul 03, 2015 8:42 am

Bloodstock now falls within long term weather forecasts. Currently heading for:

Thursday - partly sunny
Friday - mostly sunny
Saturday - rather cloudy, showers around
Sunday - clouds and a sun with a shower

This may change.

This may change? Surely not, the weather god's are always so accurate - especially 6 weeks in advance!

That would be pretty good weather but I fear that forecast could change a bit before BOA!

I'd take it as is, just hopefully it's not as windy as last year, wind's worse than rain.

If it can just be as nice as recently, but not so hot as that ridiculous 35+ degrees the other day, I'll be happy.

As long as it doesn't rain all weekend and my tent ends up floating away I will be happy.

You're from Scotland, surely you'd be used to it if it lashes it down?

Aye but this is my holidays and I've been informed the sun always shines in Englandshire!

Never been to Manchester then? :lol:

As long as it doesn't go above 20 degrees then I'll be happy. If it rains then I'll be even happier. :D

Can't be any worse than the Ozzfest 2002 when we had a mix of blinding sunshine, pissing rain and high force winds all in the same hour and continued all day.

I managed to get both sunburned and get a cold as the water was running out me . I still thank the powers of Jack Daniels for getting me through the day! :ugh:

Thursday - Sun and clouds
Friday - Overcast
Saturday - Overcast with a shower
Sunday - Some sun with a shower

Looks good, though showers Monday morning so packing up would be wet.

As long as we don't have another hurricane to contend with, I don't think the tent will survive a second one�
I'd quite like it not to be too warm, and a little rain shower in the early hours to keep the dust down is acceptable. Sunday night and Monday morning have to be fine though with not too much dew, just so our tents can all be packed away dry ☺️
