Wednesday, very warm and Fair day
Thursday, Clear skies and hot day
Friday, cloudy and high winds
Saturday, RAIN,RAIN and more RAIN
Sunday, clearing, slightly cool and showery

so if your going to arrivals Wednesday (WAVE) and Thursday (P&V) take some sun cream and a hat, Friday your Windbreak, Saturday your water proof and brollies and finally Sunday duck and cover when needed ;)
The forecast certainly doesn't predict rain, rain and more rain. Probably rain in the morning but looms to clear throughout the day
I did write this after viewing the forecast last night and Saturday was just rain. Seems within 12hrs the classic BBC weather forecast has changed to the rain hitting Friday night into Sat morning... :thumb: Still not the best weather to start.

Does anyone know any rough timings for arrivals tomorrow? Or even if anyone knows whether they will be in the morning or afternoon?

Any info is much appreciated as it will help me decide how early to go into work so I can get to waddo in time for the arrivals :thumb:

Very unlikely and it will not be until 0800 tomorrow at the very earliest and the plan is so changeable it is often hours out - Sorry I could not provide better news. @WaddAirshowInfo on twitter will tweet a plan for tomorrow (if available) around 0830
