So far, the Spanish Grand Prix weekend in Barcelona has been dry, but rain is lurking ahead of the race.

The end of Sunday morning's Formula 3 race was hit by light rain, with thunderstorms expected in north-eastern Spain. They have been forecast to pass over the city and potentially hit the track.

Fortunately, as the race-start time of 15:00 local approaches, the sun will begin to break through, with the threat of rain reducing, but still a possibility.

In the hilly landscape of Barcelona, the rain could stay put. 

The wind is expected to be blowing at around 10-20kph with gusts of 30-40kph towards the northeast, which roughly corresponds to a headwind on the main pit straight, which should aid overtaking, with temperatures of 22 degrees.
