Miami Grand Prix 2022

Florida weather: What's in store for the Miami GP?

The upcoming, inaugural Miami Grand Prix weekend could hold some surprises on the weather front.

This weekend sees Formula 1 head to Miami for the first time, as the coastal metropolis plays host to the fifth round of the 2022 World Championship.

Despite being quite tropical and warm, the race could be set for some extra drama in terms of conditions, with the latest weather forecasts suggesting that heavy rain may hit over the course of the weekend.

While the Miami International Autodrome will bake under the sun for most of the event, the extreme heat and humidity also means rain is forecast on all three days of the Grand Prix.

Friday will see temperatures of around 33 or 34 degrees Celsius, with track temperatures set to be even higher.

According to WeerOnline.nl, spectators heading to the track should be aware of the sun's strength and cover up – unprotected skin can burn within 10 minutes of exposure.

Heavy rain could hit during Friday afternoon, which would affect the second practice session. These showers, if they happen, are likely on Saturday and Sunday afternoon, too, meaning a rain-affected qualifying and Grand Prix.

However, the rain is far from certain at this point, although the most likely day to be affected by heavy downpours is race day on Sunday.

The uncertainty regarding the weather is related to the tropical climate, with rain showers occurring suddenly and with extreme localisation.
