Hot, dry weather expected for Monza

Posted on Author Keith Collantine

The forecast is there should be no repeat of last year’s unusually wet weather at Monza for the Italian Grand Prix this weekend.

Three days of hot, dry weather with temperatures reaching the 30s are expected.

Only a few sites are predicting any chance of rain – AccuWeather gives a low chance of light rain on Saturday evening and WeatherBug says something similar for Friday.

On the whole, expect the usual summer sunshine at Monza. Last year’s weather was exceptionally unusual – until then the Italian Grand Prix had only seen occasional splashes of rain in 1981 and 2004.

The entire weekend last year was drenched, with rain so heavy that one practice session was stopped early. Sebastian Vettel scored his maiden win from pole position.
