Festival-goers may need to dig out the macs and the wellies for Glastonbury this year, as the weather forecast suggests rain is on the way.
Glastonbury is one of the musical highlights of the year - bringing us world-class performances from some of the biggest names in the industry.
The Somerset festival, which takes place at Worthy Farm, was first founded by Michael Eavis in 1970, and has continued to attract thousands of fans each year it's on.
But one thing that can put a dampener on the event - quite literally - is the weather.
So what's the forecast for this year and is it going to rain? Here's the latest information from the Met Office...
