For those heading to #EP22 the good news is Friday looks pretty good and the breaks in the rain look to be around evening time over the weekend but tents will be tested with heavy rain at times and also possibly some windy conditions on Sunday. Still hard to nail the rainfall. pic.twitter.com/z3c02VzML2
