T In The Park 2011 - Weather Forecast

Looks like a wash out

T In The Park could be set for a wash out after forecasters began predicting heavy rain for the weekend event.

Scotland's biggest music festival, T In The Park draws more than 80,000 people to the Balado site. An enormous undertaking, this year's stellar attractions include Foo Fighters, The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, Pulp, Beyonce and more.

However much will depend on the weather. Scotland is famed for its ability to throw up four seasons in one day, and previous instalments of T In The Park have owed their success to a dose of sunshine.

So how will 2011 fare? According to the latest forecasts from Metcheck, T In The Park is heading for a wash out. The ClashMusic office is located in Dundee, just a few miles from the site and currently we are experiencing torrential rain and high winds.

Fans are set to arrive to heavy rain when the site opens tomorrow (July 7th). The traditional Thursday night party for campers could be dampened, with heavy rain set to fall for the duration.

The music opens on Friday (July 8th) with sets from Plan B and Scottish favourites The View. The Dundonian band may well be on fire, but the ferocious weather conditions could turn their indie spark into a damp squib.

The weather is set to remain furiously grey, with Saturday opening to heavy showers and even thunder. Set to settle down by the weekend, sets from unlikely pairing The Strokes and Beyonce should be rain free.

After getting slightly better fans will be forced to reach for their umbrellas once more on Sunday (July 10th) when the weather returns. During the day the Balado site will remain dry, but when the evening draws in the rain is predicted to make a return.

Foo Fighters are set to bring the weekend to a close, with Dave Grohl & Co. making a triumphant return to Scotland. However the group had best bring their plastic ponchos as the rain is set to make a final appearance as the fireworks begin to fall.

T In The Park runs between July 8th - 10th. Expect coverage from the ClashMusic team live onsite.
