Keith will be posting the ‘official’ F1Fanatic weather forecast on Thursday, but until then:
At the moment the chance of rain is 30% for all three GP days according to meteoblue. Temperatures will exceed 30C every day. However, F1.com has also published their weather predictions: dry on Saturday and Sunday, but an evil looking thundercloud on Sunday.
From recent years: the trend in Malaysia has been that the morning is dry and heavy rain starts falling in the late afternoon, right when FP2, quali and the race will take place.19th March 2013, 8:05 at 8:05 am #228997sato113Participant
No point predicting the weather here really. There are rain storms everyday in the area. Its just how early in the evening do they arrive and whether they pass over the track or miss it by a km or two. Thats something you cant predict im afraid.19th March 2013, 8:06 at 8:06 am #228998Bradley DowntonParticipant
If there’s one weather forecast I’ve stopped getting excited about over the years, it’s Malaysia. There is no points whatsoever trying to predict where and when it will rain there because it just decides what it wants to do on an hourly basis. The only thing we can predict is the amount of rain.
EDIT: @sato113 beat me too it…19th March 2013, 8:15 at 8:15 am #228999Aish HeydrichParticipant

As long as we don’t get a large rain delay, or a short race due to red flags, I’ll be happy. I love back-to-back weekends of racing!19th March 2013, 19:04 at 7:04 pm #229003HKParticipant
Here’s hoping for a dry race. Really wish to see what the teams can do, now that they know more about the tires. That should give a better indications about performance. This time: rather a interesting dry race than an entertaining race in the wet.19th March 2013, 20:23 at 8:23 pm #229004Master fireleeParticipant
The thing about wet races is you mostly don’t get a standing start, I wouldn’t mind rain coming in in the last 10 or so laps but it might get red flagged again and I don’t want that, so i’m hoping for a dry race to have a better understanding of where teams are at the moment.20th March 2013, 9:47 at 9:47 am #229005
