    Glastonbury weather forecast: Rain set to ruin weekend at the famous festival

    Glastonbury's weather forecast for the five-day event is in and it looks set to be a mixed bag with rain trying to ruin fun at the weekend.

    The huge globally-famous event – which has been cancelled for the past two years due to the coronavirus pandemic – kicks off on Wednesday.

    The sun is due to shine on the Somerset-based festival with highs of around 24C-25C for the first few days.

    But by Friday the temperature drops and the showers begin for the rest of the weekend.

    The Met Office forecast for Wednesday to Friday reads: "Remaining dry with plenty of warm sunshine on Wednesday and Thursday, and turning warmer.
