Sunshine is on the cards for happy campers

FESTIVAL-goers will need their wellies this weekend – but only for a short while.

Temperatures are set to remain at about 24C as the humid weather continues.

Chris Bell, a forecaster at WeatherQuest, said it would be relatively dry for the four-day event.

“Tomorrow is set to be a sunny day with a small chance of a light shower in the early evening,” he said.

“All in all, the weather will be nice for those at Latitude festival – a generally pleasing weekend.
