We’re coming to the end of Singapore’s second annual rainy season, which makes predicting exactly what the weather is going to do at a particularly time tricky.
There’s a good chance of rain on any day during the race weekend, but whether it will interfere with the F1 action is a different matter.
Thunderstorms are abundant in the area but the experience of the past two Grands Prix shows they tend to peter out before the action starts on the track.
You can see this pattern of thunderstorm activity today on the Singapore National Environment Agency rain radar.
The earliest session of the weekend is first practice on Friday, which starts at 6pm local time. The race starts at 8pm on Sunday.
Hot temperatures (in the mid-to-high twenties even at night time) mean that after rain has fallen it dries up quickly.
We haven’t had any wet running at Singapore before so it remains to be seen what would happen to the drivers’ visibility if water spray was added to the floodlit conditions of the night race.
If you’re in the area and can update us on the weather please let us know in the comments.
