Sunny weekend forecast for Canadian Grand Prix

2018 Canadian Grand Prix weather

Consistently warm and sunny conditions are forecast throughout the three days of the Canadian Grand Prix weekend.

Sunny skies will greet the first practice session and air temperatures will climb throughout the opening day of action. By second practice some cloud cover is likely but air temperatures should rise to around 22C by then.

Wind gusts of up to 20mph could catch drivers out on Friday and conditions could be even windier on the Isle Notre Dame on Saturday. However the clear skies will remain and air temperatures will again get into the 20s. Track temperatures of more than 40C are therefore possible, as we saw last year.

Sunday will be the coolest of the three days. But while air temperatures may not break the 20C mark the wind should drop in time for the grand prix.

There is a slight chance of a shower on Friday evening but other than that the Canadian Grand Prix looks set to be a dry event.

    Heat supposedly favours Ferrari, right? Bit disappointed not to see some rain, but the Grand Prix should be a cracker

  2. How far is Montreal from the G7 festivities? @robbie

  3. This is the BEST place to view a GP in person. Stay in a nice downtown hotel, modern subway to the track, massive nightlife.
    If you are looking for a GP to attend, please consider this one. I’m glad I made it my first flyaway race. LOTS of memories today as practice gets underway.
