Round eight of the 2024 Formula 1 campaign sees the paddock descend on Monaco for one of the most famous events in world motorsport.

Max Verstappen enters the round in the lead of the championship, with Charles Leclerc 48 points behind.

Verstappen won last year's grand prix at Monaco, taking a hard-fought pole position before dominating the race.

But what weather conditions are expected for the event this weekend?

Rain on the way?

Practice will take place on Friday, with F1 moving away from the Thursday outings that were a long-time tradition at the event.

According to Weeronline.nl, highest temperatures of 21 degrees Celcius are expected on Friday and Saturday - however there is a chance of showers hitting the track.

The most likely time for the rain to fall on both days is in the afternoon, meaning it could impact second practice on Friday and qualifying on Saturday.

However, the possibility remains low for now, with current chances of a rain-hit qualifying session resting at 10 per cent.

For the grand prix, no rain is expected - so there's no need to anticipate a wash-out that we saw in 2022 or the late-race downpour that occurred last year.

Temperatures will rise to a maximum of 22 degrees Celcius with a UV index of seven.
