Glastonbury 2022 takes place this weekend - and this is what the weather's looking like at the moment.

While some of the UK has enjoyed a spell of very hot weather, let's look to the weekend and what the forecast for Glastonbury festival is looking like...

According to the Met Office's forecast, here's what they're predicting:

  • Saturday 25 June will be sunny in the morning, changing to thunder in the afternoon, which could return later in the evening. There's a high of 18C.
  • Sunday 26 June will be sunny intervals changing to cloudy by the afternoon, with a high of 19C and a low of 12C. There's less than a 5% chance of rain for most of the day.

Glastonbury 2022 runs until Sunday 26 June, with headliners including Billie Eilish, Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar.

The festival - which first started in 1970 - has seen its fair share of washouts, with the 1997 event being one of the muddiest of all-time. The following year was also hit with horrendous weather, with many festival-goers bailing on the Saturday.

In 2005 and 2007, Worthy Farm was completely flooded.

The last time Glastonbury was held, in 2019, was one of the hottest editions of the festival on record, with a high of 31C recorded on the Saturday.
