Cool weather and chance of rain in China

Posted on Author Keith Collantine

We could see our third consecutive rain-affected F1 event this weekend.

Weather forecasts for the Shanghai region this weekend indicate Friday and Saturday will stay dry but there’s a chance of light rain on Sunday which could affect the Grand Prix.

It’s expected to stay cool in Shanghai with temperatures below 20C. Friday could be as cool as 12C.

Rain has affected three of the last four Chinese Grands Prix. Last year was the first time the race was held early in the season, in April rather than October.

The Japan Meterological Agency has a weather satellite which covers the Shanghai area which we can use to keep an eye on the weather in the build-up to Sunday’s race: find it here.
