With weather app forecasts changing more than an influencer's festival wardrobe plans over the last few days, those heading to All Together Now are unsure if they should pack for sunny spells or sudden downpours.
Now that the festival is at last upon us, forecasters are finally in agreement as to what revellers can expect in the coming days - and it's better than expected!
The long weekend will be a mixed bag but Sunday is looking a lot better now with even some nice sunny spells! Saturday dull and damp with patchy rain and risk of heavy showers Monday. pic.twitter.com/abPFOAEfH0

Friday is set to be the best day of the weekend with prolonged sunny spells and highs of 22°C. Heavy overnight cloud cover will ensure the mercury doesn't dip too low with overnight temperatures of 17°C expected.
A muggy start to Saturday with heavy cloud cover continuing. The odd sunny spell might break through as the afternoon progress. There's a slight chance of isolated drizzle, but nothing much to worry about!
Latest forecast for @ATNfestival in Portlaw over the next few days. A risk of some showers especially at night but generally dry and cloudy. Mild and humid too with mild nights so need for the extra sleeping bag😁 pic.twitter.com/V1MBUncPGT

Things will deteriorate in the early hours of Sunday morning with a heavy band of rain forecast to hit All Together Now from around 2 am. This band of rain is set to clear from around 7 am leaving behind it sunny spells and the warmest temperatures of the weekend with highs of 23°C possible in the afternoon - that humidity should dry up the soaked ground pretty quickly.
Tired heads might be better off getting up that little bit earlier on Monday morning to tidy up their camping gear as overcast conditions are set to make way for drizzle from 11 am until around lunchtime. Having said that, Monday is still a little too far to forecast accurately so keep an eye on your weather app for further updates.
