    Dependent or Depending

    Please can someone tell me, which is the more correct, and why?

    1. Depending on the weather, we will have a barbeque on Saturday.

    2. Depending upon the weather, we will have a barbeque on Saturday.

    3. Dependent on the weather, we will have a barbeque on Saturday.

    4. Dependent upon the weather, we will have a barbeque on Saturday.

    Thanks,

    They are all correct, 1 and 2 are more natural, 1 is probably more commonly used.
