Forecasters are predicting 'torrential downpours' for this weekend's T In The Park festival, with another festival under threat from the British weather.
Isle Of Wight festival was thrown into chaos last month, when extreme weather threatened the event and Paul Weller was forced to cancel his Jodrell Bank gig due to poor conditions. Now, T In The Park is set to become a mudbath, with bad weather predicted across the weekend. Certain parts of England and Wales are also predicted to experience a month's rainfall over the next two days.
"Friday will probably be the best day weather-wise, but rain will always be close by. It will get more unsettled into the evening with rain pushing up from northern England and settling over Scotland," says Aisling Creevey, a weather forecaster with MeteoGroup. "Saturday will be much the same and there could be some torrential downpours in central Scotland.
"Sunday isn't looking greater either but there will be a few dry spells. It will also turn a bit cooler with northern winds making the area unseasonably cool."
Over 85,000 people per day are expected to descend upon Balado, Kinross, to see performances from the likes of New Order, David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Nicki Minaj and Jessie J.
