Current forecast isn't too bad. Cloudy Thurs-Sat, some showers on Sun. Wonder how long it'll be before it changes again :lol:

Not very long. Currently cloudy/sunny on Thursday. Showers/Sunny Friday. Cloudy Sat, and Sun.

I'd be happy enough with that forecast.

I said I wasn't going to check, but I couldn't resist. Metcheck now showing sunny all weekend. Just stay like that, please. Thanks.

There's the occasional.possibility of showers throughout Friday and Saturday, according to a few sites. Regardless, I am just taking shorts. Looks like it's going to be warm enough, and I've worn cut offs in snow, so this is nothing
I went a way for some time, but I guess I should come back and annoy people due to attending this year

Brave! I'll be wearing shorts in the day, but take trousers for the night time. I'm a full on lizard, though, and when it starts getting really late I'm usually bundled up in about four layers. :lol:

Shorts dry quicker when the rain stops. I don't y to stay dry in the rain as it doesn't work so focus is on doing quickly afterwards. Heavy jeans keep you needlessly wet for hours long after the rain's gone.

Cut off combats for me this coming weekend and old faithful (my sleeveless denim jacket) for over my t-shirt if it gets cold at any point.

True facts. Though I'm taking a pair of cut off bernys if I get the button sorted on them. I'll have spare pairs of shorts to change into though, so it's not a big deal If they get soaked through

At least two storms going to hit the UK around midweek according to the BBC. We should miss the worst of it.

Yeah it's still looking good on Metcheck, minus some showers on Friday night.

BBC not as healthy, with rain Thursday and Friday.

I remember a few years ago ('08 or '09?) some weather forecast said it'd be ~10000℃ with massive storms. :lol:

So long as I can get my tent up without it getting piss wet through, I'm happy.
