The UK is expected to see temperatures remain high, with the average being in the 20s throughout the weekend.
Rachel Ayers is a senior Met Office meteorologist and stated: “A band of rainfall will cross Northern Ireland, Wales, and southwest England throughout the afternoon. It will reach Glastonbury during the middle to late afternoon. It will bring cooler, breezier temperatures.
A band of showers will fall on Saturday but they will continue to break out in the south and west. Ms Ayres indicated that there could be some locally heavy rainfall with the possibility of thundershowers, particularly in the south-west, and therefore some showers to Glastonbury.
Ms Ayres stated that Sunday would be cloudy and showery, with rain falling in the northwestern region. Other areas will see a mix of sun and rain, with scattered showers. Glastonbury may also be affected by some heavy showers.
