FESTIVAL goers are in for a SCORCHING start to Glastonbury, but experts have reported that this heatwave may end in thunderstorms.
Just a week after Brits experienced sweltering 34C temperatures, the weather is once again heating up, with temperatures reaching 28C.
For those attending Glastonbury, it will be slightly cooler but still pleasant.
Met Office Deputy Meteorologist Helen Caughey said: “You should plan for both sunhats and raincoats for this year’s festival.
“There will be plenty of sunshine on Wednesday across the South West, although there could be a bit more cloud later in the day, and temperatures will reach 26C or 27C. The dry, sunny and warm theme will continue through Thursday.
“However, from Friday onwards the weather will become more unsettled. There is a risk of heavy showers and thunderstorms in the Glastonbury area on both Friday and Saturday, although these should be quick moving, some surface water might accumulate at times. Temperatures will start to dip as we go through the end of the week returning to near normal for the time of year, with highs likely around 18-20C.
“Sunday is expected to be mostly dry and bright at first but with showers once again developing through the morning, some of which could be heavy, and possibly thundery. The unsettled pattern is expected to continue to dominate into the start of next week.”
This comes as experts predict Brits could be in four AT LEAST four more heatwaves before the end of summer.
