Those heading to Cambridge Folk festival today are in for a treat, as temperatures peak at 26 degrees and stay high, with clear skies set to remain throughout the evening.

Friday sees a bright start, with a cloudier aspect throughout the day, and temperatures reaching a high of 23 degrees. The skies will turn cloudier into the afternoon.

Saturday looks like the best day in terms of sunshine, with sunny spells expected throughout the day, although it will feel slightly cooler, with top temperatures of around 21 degrees.

Sunday will turn colder, with highs of 18 degrees, and after a sunny morning, showers will dominate the rest of the day, interspersed with sunny periods.

After a few showers in the early morning, visitors to Camp Bestival in Dorset are in for a fine, sunny day, with highs reaching 25 degrees, followed by a similarly sunny Saturday, with temperatures slightly lower – reaching just 19 degrees.

Sunday’s temperatures will be similar, but unsettled, showery weather is likely to dominate. By the time Sunday headliners Happy Mondays take to the stage however, it’s possible the skies will have cleared.

Global Gathering’s festival attendees and headliners Tinie Tempah and Chase & Status have lucked out, as weather in the Stratford-upon-Avon area is due to be warm and sunny on both days, feeling slightly cooler with a gentle westerly breeze on Saturday.

Heading up to the beautiful Lake District this weekend? The weather for Kendal Calling looks likely to be mixed, with clear skies for most of Friday with temperatures reaching a high of 17 degrees.

After a day of sun and showers, it looks like it will be raining as Dizzee Rascal takes to the stage as Saturday’s headliner, with a west-south-westerly breeze making it feel cooler than the 15 degrees forecast. Sunday sees a bright start, followed by further mixed sunshine and showers for James’ closing headline set.
