This is far hotter than we’ve seen at most recent British Grands Prix, and although the coming days are expected to be cooler it should still be a very pleasant weekend for the spectators – a far cry from the persistent rain of 2012.
Cooler air from the west has brought temperatures down on Thursday, but by Friday they will be rising again. A sunny start to practice should see temperatures reaching the 25C mark. There is a good chance of overnight rain on Friday, after which Saturday will bring similar conditions.
At this stage race day looks like being a shade cooler and possibly cloudy. There is also a slight risk of a light rain shower on Sunday, but the likelihood of that happening will depend on how the weather systems shift over the next 72 hours.
