gLastonbury is at risk of being hit by ‘damaging’ showers with thunderstorms set to hit southern England on Thursday.
The Met Office has issued a yellow thunderstorm warning for Thursday, stretching from Sheffield in the north, across the south-east and to Bath in the south-west.
Thursday is also expected to see more rail strikes, with bad weather likely to add to travel problems.
Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkill said: “The one thing we need to be aware of is that there is a risk, albeit small but not miniscule, of intense thunderstorms, particularly tomorrow. The chances that Glastonbury itself is actually hit by one is very small.
“So I hope they’re okay.
“The warning talks about the risk of 40 to 60 millimeters of rain falling in a few hours, large hail, frequent lightning, that sort of thing.
“So it could be quite damaging. But the risk is very low that it actually hits the Glastonbury site.”
