With heavy rain having fallen on Saturday, showers are again expected in Singapore on race day, but any rain may have passed by the time the race starts at 20:00 local time.

Singapore has a tropical climate, with warm and humid conditions all year round. Daily maximum temperatures are between 30 and 34 degrees and at night the mercury rarely dips below 25. Showers and thunderstorms can occur almost every day.

Heavy showers on Sunday

According to our friends at Weeronline.nl, heavy rain and thunderstorms will develop in Singapore and the surrounding area on Sunday.

If the race were held in the afternoon, the chance of it being disrupted by heavy rain would have been very high.

However, the chance of rain decreases in the late afternoon and into the evening, and with the Grand Prix not starting until 20:00 local time, a dry race is very possible.
