The Italian Grand Prix could see a wet start when practice begins tomorrow and more rain later in the race weekend.
The weather is expected to take a turn this evening as temperatures fall and rain clouds arrive. The circuit should be well doused long before the start of the first practice session at 11am local time, and the rain is currently expected to linger well beyond that. Second practice, which begins at 3pm, is therefore likely to be wet too.
Saturday will bring a complete change. The skies are expected to clear up and Monza should be bathed in golden September sunlight, bringing the ambient temperatures up to 23-25C for the crucial hour of qualifying.
A bit of both is expected on Sunday: The day will begin wet, then the sun will return in the afternoon. Whether conditions are likely to dry out in time for the race is not clear at the moment and could change between now and then, but if nothing else the return of the rain will reset the track conditions.
