Sunny but cool conditions expected at COTA

2019 United States Grand Prix weather

| Written by

Sunny weather is expected for this weekend’s United States Grand Prix but the mercury may not hit as high as 20C across all three days.

Cool conditions will greet the teams on the first day of practice for this weekend’s race, when the air temperatures are only forecast to reach around 17C. It should be sunny throughout, however, with no chance of rain.

Over the following days conditions will warm up very slightly, and occasional cloudy spells are possible, which could have an effect on track temperatures. With little cloud, temperatures on Friday could fall as low as 3C overnight, meaning ground temperatures could still be very cool during the earlier practice sessions.

On qualifying and race day temperatures will head towards 20C but are likely to fall short. Track temperatures are therefore likely to be sub-30C, slightly cooler than last year’s race.

Race day looks like being the best of the three following a warmer night and only light winds.

    1. It is cold, right now in Dallas at 8am it is 28F – might need Pirelli to break out the cold weather tires :)
