It's still expected to rain at Glastonbury 2011, with the worst expected on Wednesday and Thursday, with the ground already very wet, according to today's reports (21 June).

The Met Office website currently says that there should be sunny intervals every day, but also light rain, with a risk of heavy showers on Wednesday and Thursday, with temperatures over the weekend ranging from 16 – 21C.

Metcheck, meanwhile, predicts a cloudy site with occasional showers for much of the festival, though Sunday should be sunny with the temperature reaching 23C.

An Oxfam worker already at the site, Anna Smith, told us: “Yesterday rained all day so the ground is a mess already, but it’s warm and a little windy today so its drying out well. Won’t take much for it to become a swamp though.”

The official Glastonbury Twitter gave its own update a couple of hours ago, saying: “It’s not currently raining at the farm, but it is wet underfoot (do bring wellies).”
