After the cancellation of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix due to flooding in the region, the 2023 Formula 1 season resumes this weekend with the Monaco Grand Prix.

The iconic Circuit de Monaco is famed for the challenge that it poses to drivers, with the narrow streets leaving little room for error. Should inclement weather also be thrown into the mix, the stakes become even higher...

With thanks to our friends at WeerOnline.nl, here's the current weather forecast for the 2023 F1 Monaco Grand Prix.

Mixed conditions predicted for Monaco

Friday looks set to be a sunny and dry day in Monte Carlo, with a maximum temperature of 24 degrees Celsius.

The sunshine is expected to continue into Saturday and similar temperatures are forecast. However, as the afternoon progresses, clouds are likely to appear which will then develop into heavy thunderstorms, particularly north of Monaco.

There is a possibility of this resulting in a wet track during qualifying, but the chances are estimated at only 10 percent.

On Sunday, conditions look to be dry, sunny and warm for much of the day. Clouds could emerge in the afternoon, though, which again could result in thunderstorms north of Monaco. These are likely to be heavier than those on Saturday.

The chances of a shower reaching the circuit during Sunday's race – which begins at 15:00 local time – are estimated at around 25 percent.
