All eyes are set to be looking into the sky for the annual Cowes Week firework finale tomorrow night (Friday), but local weather forecasts IW Met Service are warning of strong winds and rain.
Organisers of the world-famous regatta say ‘the weather won’t stop the display’, despite anticipated strong winds and rain that is set to sweep across the Isle of Wight tomorrow evening.
IW Met Service say that around the time of the fireworks the wind will be gusting at up to 45mph. Throughout Friday it is set to be a fairly unpleasant day with consistent rain becoming patchy as the day goes on.
It is currently planned for a RAF Typhoon to display to the crowds at 19:30, with the first firework timed to shoot into the night sky at 21:30.
The fireworks are best viewed from Cowes or East Cowes esplanade.
UPDATE FRIDAY @ 10:13 – Cowes Week organisers have confirmed that the RAF Typhoon display scheduled for this evening has been CANCELLED.
However, the fireworks display at 21:30 will go ahead ‘whatever the weather’.
