The Official 2012 Le Mans Weather Thread

Well, with just a week to go until the test day, time to open The Official 2012 Le Mans Weather Thread.


As always, there are links below to various sites, all of which will undoubtdely be predicting wall to wall sunshine and barmy summer highs!

You know the rules - you can either agree with Ayse, or you can be wrong - you've been warned!

Accuweather

Metcheck

Agate France

La Chaine Meteo

You are welcome to post links to other meteorological websites elsewhere on the thread.


Yep, no doubt about it, we're in for an absolute scorcher this year!

Careful what you wish for.......

fog = safety car period
full wet very often = safety car period

Both are a complete waste of what is ONLY 24 hours. Me, I prefer to watch the cars racing!

Well I don't necessarily want 2001-esque madness on Sunday, but a mix between 2007 and 2008 would be ideal

At least the ACO still allows them to race if it rains in tolerable amounts, unlike that "other" world championship which immediately red flags it if someone sees a drop of moisture...
