The gates have opened at the T in the Park campsite and the festival is definitely going ahead, but what can you expect when you arrive – is it a mudfest? Will you need your wellies? What about the sunscreen?
Well, pack everything – be prepared for all occasions, that is the message coming from STV weather wonder Sean Batty.
Sean has been monitoring the forecast over Balado for the past few days and the latest update is that while it will be wet, there will also be glimmers of sunshine to brighten up your day. We’re not quite talking ‘taps aff’ here, but it’s not quite the monsoon weather that we witnessed last night either, so that’s something, right?
Sean said that Friday will see outbreaks of light rain, but it should brighten up in the afternoon with highs of 19 degrees Celsius. Why, it’s practically tropical! Not really, but you’ll still need the Factor 50 to avoid any unsightly red noses.
The rain will become more frequent on Friday night, with showers and the possibility of a few heavier outbursts on Saturday. You will definitely need to dig out the old pac-a-mac, but it will be muggy so our advice is to layer.
You could even treat yourself to a handy festival shirt, complete with hood, like our very own Mr Batty.
Again, it looks like the rain will become a little heavier on Saturday night but on Sunday, it will be showers with the odd glimpse of the sun.
Sunday may also be the day you can justify buying one of those ridiculous fluffy animal hats as Sean says it is likely to be ‘fresher’.
Our advice? Pack for all occasions, stay safe and have a ball and follow @SeanBattySTV for all your latest weather updates.
The STV team will be bringing you the latest news and reviews from T throughout the weekend so remember to check stv.tv/tinthepark for all the goss. See you there.
