Not having a storm like last year would be very nice, that said the mud on most of the site wasn't too bad. Just a couple of swallow you whole bits around the entrance to the arena and to Midgard.

I don't mind a light rain overnight but don't want any during the day (unless Triptykon are playing and then its perfect).



If it does end up like that, not looking forward to dealing with a wheelchair user, unless they prepare and put boards down for it

As it stands now, going by a few sites, looks like it's going to be mild, cloudy, with a few showers over the period. All subject to change within the next week though

I'm quite happy with that forecast

No risk of sunstroke no risk of getting trench foot from monsoon conditions!

Just as long as its not pissing it down on Thursday, when the tent goes up. Nothing like a wet tent to start the weekend of badly.
Im expecting a bit of rain, so it'll be what it will be. :yes:

I've read 3 different weather websites and they've varied between chucking it down and not a cloud in the sky.

I'll just wait a bit I think.

Best way. Though apparently it's going to be nice down that way for the next few days. Being in the middle, that could keep continuing, if the fronts stay rather calm

As long as the sun isn't beating down on my rapidly balding head I'll be very happy.

Seriously, you don't want sunburn on your scalp. The only alternative is suncream but then you'll look like Lisa when she got gum in her hair.

I love hats, but sometimes you take it off for a minute or forget to put it on.

Looking like rain from Thursday to Sunday on BBC weather. Investing in a decent raincoat and better sleeping bag this weekend then. Hope my tent pulls through it - won't have time to go and get a new one between this and Summer Breeze. The rain destroyed mine last Bloodstock and I had to abandon it.

Accuweather's showing as cloudy with a few showers all weekend. Still think it's a bit early to know for certain what's going to happen. Trying to stay optimistic, but will find my raincoat out this weekend and pack a towel as well :)

Metcheck showing showers everyday except Sunday. I was actually hopeful about this weather this morning, as it's a really nice day. :/

Yeah it's lovely this morning, which seems to be keeping people from coming in at work, relatively quiet :)

Really nice here as well. The weather can't be as bad as last year's storm though, surely? For the moment I'm just going to believe Accuweather as it's the best forecast I've found

Can't remember what sites I have checked on, but general consensus is showers. But what detailed predictions I have seen says that most of the showers are during the early hours of the morning. I think saturday was the worst. But it's going to be warm, so it isn't that bad
