Weather Conditions update
Last Friday and Saturday, like many other parts of the British Isles, the Isle of Man experienced heavy snowfalls. Some parts are still cut off without electricity. Of the parts where the Festival takes place, Peel was the worst affected and there were snowfalls on the hill. The amount of snow in around Port Erin and Douglas Promenade was a lot less and these areas are pretty well clear.
Looking ahead to the weekend, the general weather forecast is that it will continue to be cold over the next few days. At the moment the daytime temperature is around 3-4 degress celcius but there is a windchill making it feel much colder. The thing to emphasise is to bring plenty of warm clothing along with you.
