I think the waterproof-trousers-in-a-bag might also be seeing some Indietracks action...

I just looked at the weather! Indietracks isn't meant to be wet. How did this happen? Quick, let's move the whole kit and caboodle to the Nordic countries, I am bouncing through Sweden on my way from Finland and I can personally attest that it is lovely in both countries. Sunday isn't looking great, but Friday and Saturday should be fine in Helsinki. Does that work for everyone?

There's talk of 'showers, occasional' over the weekend...

We'd settle for that, wouldn't we?

After last year's deluge then yes, definitely.

Bear in mind they can't currently state with certainty what the weather will be this weekend.

That's about perfect as far as I'm concerned.

Met Office still saying it'll be nice, if not especially warm:

Brighter and cooler through the weekend, with scattered showers affecting western and northwestern parts and southeastern parts remaining generally dry. Later in the weekend and start of the week, it may turn a little windier with cloud and rain pushing into western parts.

It's true. I only remember sunshine when you're around.

Right now the Met Office prediction is, while not as warm as it could be (max 17 on Sunday), all white clouds with a good amount of sun and no more than 10% chance of rain at any time between gates opening and midnight Sunday. Though it's rained relatively heavily here today and there's a possibility of morning showers, so the ground could be a touch sodden tomorrow.

The weather permission thread is very nice. Everyday the weather is change.

It begins:
The Met Office wrote:UK Outlook for Sunday 23 Jul 2017 to Sunday 6 Aug 2017:

Prolonged dry and warm spells may become more prevalent across much of the UK, perhaps continuing through early August, although north-western areas are still particularly likely to remain more changeable. Temperatures may be around average in the northwest, in contrast to some warmer spells elsewhere, particularly in the south and east.
I'm camping this year so expect much fretting and fussing over the weather forecasts. This looks cautiously optimistic.

Current reports suggest a biblical deluge in the early hours of Saturday morning. Why oh why am I camping again this year?

Otherwise maybe a few showers during Sunday.

Don't worry, our tent will keep you dry! Anyway the deluge has now moved to Friday evening - just in time for all the bands on the main stage!
