WITH the Isle of Wight Festival kick-starting tomorrow (Thursday), we've taken a look at the weather forecast to help you plan what to pack and what to wear.

By Isle of Wight Festival Thursday, the sun is due to rear its lovely head with mostly clear skies, according to Island weather website the IW Met Service.

That's great news for campers, as Scouting for Girls and Sophie Ellis-Bextor lead the action in the Big Top.

Temperatures as high as 21C are forecast from Thursday through to Sunday.

Friday will be partly cloudy during the day, with a chance of rain during the night.

Bring a mac for the likes of Liam Gallagher, Tom Jones, James, Becky Hill and Primal Scream, due to take to the Seaclose Park stage.

Isle of Wight County Press:

On Saturday, there is the potential for fog in the morning, and like Sunday, it is expected to be partly cloudy during the day.

It won't stop Snow Patrol, David Guetta, Sam Fender, James Arthur and the Kaiser Chiefs from bringing the entertainment.

Temperatures are expected to be marginally colder on Sunday than the previous three days.

Maybe pack the (sequined?) fleece to see Duran Duran, The Script, Supergrass and Razorlight.

"The latest data suggests the festival will see reasonable conditions throughout, with occasional sunny spells, mostly light winds and reasonable temperatures," said forecaster Jamie Russell.

"There is a hint that we could see a few thundery showers later on Friday evening and overnight, however these will be well scattered.
