The Miami Grand Prix marks the sixth round of the 2024 Formula 1 season and the third around the Miami International Autodrome.

The Sprint format will also be in play for the second time this year after it made its season debut last time out in China.

The last two events around Miami have been held in hot conditions, with Max Verstappen emerging victorious on both occasions.

So can drivers expect the same for the 2024 edition of the race?

According to our friends at WeerOnline.nl, it will be sunny and dry for most of the Miami race weekend.

However, on Sunday, there is a chance of showers despite an air temperature of 28 degrees Celcius expected.

The temperatures throughout the weekend are not expected to creep beyond 30 degrees Celcius due to the breeze blowing from the Atlantic Ocean.

Both Friday and Saturday are set to be completely dry days with plenty of sunshine beating the track.

However, Sunday's outlook is a little different - during the race, there is a 25 per cent chance of a shower falling and disrupting proceedings at the track.

Spectators are also advised to take caution in the sunshine with a UV index of 11 expected, which can burn unprotected skin in less than 10 minutes.
