The first weather predictions have been made for Glastonbury 2011 - and it looks unsettled.

Despite a reputation for rain, Glastonbury has been remarkably dry of late. The Somerset event recorded one of its warmest ever weekends in 2010, with not a single drop of rain dropping on Worthy Farm.

Yet this summer could be different. Fans are already making their way to the enormous event, with work beginning on the site over the weekend.

Light rain fell on Glastonbury as the stages were assembled, with the first weather predictions now being made. The BBC reports that the weather will remain unsettled throughout the weekend, with a large chance of rain.

"The outlook for next week remains unsettled with a mix of sunshine and showers unfortunately," said Sarah Holland, Met Office forecaster. Continuing, the forecaster explained that Somerset would get temperatures of 18 degrees Celsius but due to wind and showers the site would feel colder.

"The south-west looks to have the best of the weather of the UK with a better chance of sunny spells."

UK Weather are offering a full Glastonbury breakdown across ten days. The site will remain predominantly sunny, although there is a distinct chance of rain. Scattered showers could affect the site on Wednesday and Thursday, with cloudy conditions set to remain through the duration of the festival.

Long since sold out, this year's Glastonbury looks to be an epic. Sure, U2 and Beyonce are performing but looking beyond this the Somerset event boasts one of the summer season's most varied line ups.

Glastonbury runs between June 22nd - 26th.
