DOWNLOAD 2016: Weather Watch

Whatever kind of mood Mother Nature is in during Download week there is no doubt all who descend on Donington Park will have the time of their lives.
The bands, the music, the atmospere, the company - all combine for the best weekend of the year.
But at the same time there is no denying that it'd be nice if the weather was as warm as the welcome the fmaous rock turf offers all who enter.
I've attended every ten Download Festivals since 2006 and it while my first two (06 and 07) were drenched in baking temepratures and searing heat, it has rained every single year since 2010.
It'd be hard for any of Mother Nature's moodswings to top 2012 which saw the festival gates locked up for two hours longer than planned after heavy rain which turned the site into Brownload.
At the moment the early weather forecast don't promise a fully dry weekend but on the whole it doesn't look too bad.
The Download Festival Weather page on Facebook leads with the headline: Mainly Dry (odd shower) Wed, Thu and Fri with temps into 20's, heavy showers Sat and Dodgy Sunday.
Let's hope it the showers are odd and few but regardless ... see you in the pit.
