Park gig gets gale warning.

WEATHER experts are warning T in the Park campers to drive tent pegs deep to stand up to gale force weekend winds.

Despite much of Scotland basking in scorching sun yesterday, strong gusts and heavy rain are forecast for tomorrow as thousands of revellers pitch up for the party at Balado, near Kinross, Perthshire.

Temperatures like the year's record 27C for Aberdeen and Edinburgh are set to plummet - so crowds cheering on bands including the Red Hot Chilli Peppers will be lucky to stay warm.

With cooler western areas already hit by downpours, the Met Office said: "We're expecting strong winds accompanied by rain to hit the concert area on Saturday night.

"Drive your tent pegs deep as it won't improve until Sunday afternoon."
