Montreal weather update: Is rain in store for the Canadian GP?

With both FP3 and Qualifying having been affected by rain showers, is Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix also going to be run in wet conditions?

After rain affected all of Saturday's running in Montreal, teams and drivers can breathe a sigh of relief as Sunday's race is set to be run in dry conditions, according to our friends at WeerOnline.nl . While there may be a considerable amount of cloud cover, there is only a small chance of scattered showers, and any precipitation is expected to be minimal, unlike the downpours that fell towards the end of both FP3 and Qualifying on Saturday. Clouds will persist, but there may be temporary breaks of sunshine, and there may also be some light wind. With temperatures around 19 degrees Celsius, it won't be particularly warm, and drivers will need to work to ensure their tyres stay within their optimal temperature window. This is a far cry from conditions earlier in the week, when Montreal saw temperatures exceeding 30 degrees Celsius until Tuesday.
