Welcome to the 'New Somerset and Dorset Railway'

Here's the problem. The main event over the weekend is the disco and barbecue on the catering coach patio. Both need good weather to work. Being conscientious we've been trying to find out what the weather's going to be like. Problem is nowhere is saying the same thing - we've had everything from dry and sunny through light rain to heavy rain - and Torro have a convective discussion with a threat of light tornadoes. So which is it to be?
We've had some weather this week - the shot above is of Bristol on Tuesday evening. This was the tail end of a storm that hit Portishead flooding the High Street. It missed us but just minutes later a separate storm lashed south Bristol, drenching us in about 2 inches of rain in 15 minutes with constant lightning.
Good news is that the Meteorological Office site shows it as being sunny at 18.00 hours tomorrow, just as the disco begins.
