THE LM SUNNY WEATHER THREAD

It's time to talk about the weather, and remember, the R word is not permitted.
And it looks good, in fact it never looked better (at least today).

Well if it's going to be wall to wall sun, does anyone have a good solar powered power pack type thing they'd recommend? No power on our campsite this year - same situation for many.

May be you could consider renting a generator? Anker products are out of stock and generally speaking you'll have to invest c 100 € to produce 3 Amps. Not really cost effective but if you're lost in the jungle…

Weather maps are beginning to look encouraging... The few I've looked at seem to highlight only Sunday morning of the race as having potential for minor weather disappointment.....

I think its too far to get an accurate forecast, confidence index is 2/5 ATM. The sites you can use as far as F is concerned are either Meteo France or accuweather.

Today: https://meteofrance.com/previsions-m.../le-mans/72000
https://www.accuweather.com/fr/fr/le.../135975?page=1
As you say, slight disappointment on Sunday could happen (early hours). C'est bon pour les tomates et les salades as they say in Essex!

They take the MeteoGroup data, but make it a more intuitive and clear display. FWIW, I’ve found it pretty good. Of course if you are looking many many days ahead then you factor that into the context of any forecast.

They had to drop the Met Office a few years ago as they were forced to go for the cheapest option after a tender.

Indeed. Plus now we have many temperatures differences, cold this morning when we had 26° yesterday, and they cant know for sure what will be the influence of the thunderstorms.

The works teams use a very sophisticated and accurate system, may be you saw it from RB screens at Monaco. In France, the free version from Meteo France is good but mainly we use accuweather. ATM forecast for the race is sunny and 28° C. Very hot.

So generally try to ignore long range predictions on weather

But now we're nearly there it's impossible not to take a peak.
Always favoured Meteo France as I figure they should know right?
So this morning was mildly depressing , have to be honest, not great.
BBC MUCH better - lets hope they're right, not the Frenchies

In another thread I read that you Beeb is no more accurate in this matter. Yes, I saw that on Thursday Andrew could be spoiled… He will be dried before the race! As PascaLM said, you must respect History. C'est bon pour les patates et le Ricard!

Looking around -

Accuweather - showing no sign of any non-sun at all from Monday to Sunday - temps between 25-28.

BBC - Monday to Thursday - sunny. Friday sunny/nonsun showers. No other non-sun predicted until Monday. Temps also 25-28.

Meteoblue - Completely different - predicting thunderstorms in the first part of the week and a sun/non-sun mix for the rest of it. Also predicting lower temps of 21-24.

Metcheck - Predicting no non-sun at all all week. Temps between 23-26 (notably hotter in afternoons/evenings)

Remember, there are two main systems for forecast : GFS (American) and CEP (European). It's better to wait the convergence of their forecasts.
And it looks better than what Meteo France and BBC showed some days ago.

We do this every year don't we Pascal? And the weather normally turns out different to all of the forecasts. I've been several times when wall to wall non-sun was predicted only to encounter dry weather almost throughout. And, occasionally the other way around. From my recent memory, it has generally been at scrutineering that we've had the worst weather....
