Glastonbury Festival could see its ever higher temperature on Friday as revellers enjoy another day of glorious sunshine.

The current record temperature at the event is 31.2C and forecasters have not ruled out that happening again.

"There's a small chance on Friday that temperatures could... reach the current Glastonbury record," a Met Office spokeswoman said.

"At the minute, 30C is more likely but we're not ruling out 31.2C."

The record heat was set in 2017.

The forecaster added: "It's going to be very warm in the South West over the next couple of days. Temperatures could be pretty hot.

"Today (Thursday) the maximum temperature in the South West will be about 28C (82.4F).

"On Friday, it will be a little bit warmer at 29C (84.2F), possibly 30C (86F), felt across parts of the South West."

The warmest night is expected to be Friday night and the Met Office spokeswoman quipped: "I wouldn't want to be in a tent... because tents are pretty good at warming up and keeping in the heat."

She added: "Saturday will still be very warm while Sunday slightly less so."

Due to the stifling heat, festival-goers are being warned to take care of themselves.

"There is a bit of a breeze around today and tomorrow, so people might not think it's as warm as it is and might not be taking the right precautions," the spokeswoman said.

"UV levels are going to be very high, so sun cream, staying hydrated and wearing sunglasses are all really important."

Glastonbury experienced its wettest day - when 16.1 mm of rain fell - in 2007.

Fans have begun arriving and some are out sunbathing at the world-famous Somerset festival.

Aerial photos show a tent city basking in sunlight at the event, which is usually associated with mud.

The music, which includes acts such as Stormzy and Kylie Minogue, does not officially begin until Friday.

The high temperatures at Glastonbury come as a heatwave sweeps across Europe. ... 77471.html
