British GP weather forecast: Could rain again threaten the weekend?

Rain played a part at last weekend's Austrian GP Sprint.

Although the main event on Sunday was dry, the Austrian weather threw up some surprises for F1 at the Red Bull Ring Sprint weekend. Rain hit the circuit for Sprint Shootout and the 100km race, adding to the intrigue of the sport's alternative format. But could Silverstone see rain for the British Grand Prix? Check out the weather forecast below!

British Grand Prix weather forecast

RacingNews365's weather partners WeerOnline predict first and second practice will be run under summery temperatures, with highs of 27 degrees Celsius. Wind speeds are relatively low, though the airfield layout at Silverstone can lead to a number of troubles across the weekend with large parts of the track exposed. Dry weather is no longer a certainty on Saturday, however. Final practice may escape showers, though the chance of rain during qualifying in the afternoon lies around 60 percent, though temperatures remain in the high 20s. Race day will be much cooler, however, with highs of 22 degrees providing potential for headaches among teams when creating a set-up earlier in the weekend. The chance of rain drops compared to Saturday, though still sits at 35 percent, with wind speeds staying consistent across the weekend. Cooler temperatures mean that should rain arrive, the chance of the track drying will dramatically drop.
