Summer 2022


Music festivals and sports events

The outdoor event weather calendar is back on the website for the first time since the COVID pandemic struck.

Unfortunately in the UK snapshot forecasts from computer models often vary a lot when looking more than a few days ahead. Therefore, if you want to dig a little deeper at longer ranges the best thing to do is look at the charts from ensemble models. They are designed to help account for uncertainty and suggest the most probable outcome at a given time.

Using the links below select the nearest location to your venue. Don't worry if it seems quite distant because when forecasting between 7 and 16 days ahead that really doesn't matter too much. The key is to try and identify the likely trends and not worry about the details until the event is a few days away.
