Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes, Monte-Carlo, 2014Weather forecasts for the Monaco Grand Prix indicate wet conditions for the first track action tomorrow with more potentially to follow.

Warm sunny conditions today will give way to clouds and rainfall overnight. Periodic rain and sunny spells are expected throughout the first day of practice, which uniquely is held on Thursday. Conditions in the morning could be quite unpleasant, with strong winds expected, though this should pass before second practice.

The forecast for the rest of the weekend is more uncertain at this early stage, but the possibility of further showers which could interfere with qualifying on Saturday or the race on Sunday remains. Modest temperatures are expected, rising little above 20C, with Thursday several degrees cooler.

  1. Looking forward to the weekend. Saturday that is, GP2 and qualifying.

  2. Wow a wet race will be supreme considering Monaco’s usual boredom in the dry.

  3. It feels like ages since we have had a wet race weekend. Only some atrocious weather and surprise results could liven up this weekend

  4. Can’t wait then, if it happens. It’s been ages since a wet race in Monaco (2008 I think).

  5. I hope it rains on race day. Monaco 2008 was a good race in my opinion.

    1. Hamilton certainly thought so.

      Although I doubt he was thinking that when he broke his tires around lap 5… :)

  6. To be sure the forecast is uncertain and not specifically for rain. This morning it is just spitting rain. I suspect that it will be in and all weekend with some sun and light rain.

  7. I really hope it rains for the race which will get quite interesting. I don’t want the rain to be light but moderate to heavy
