The Annual Le Mans Weather Thread

I have just been looking at the long range weather forcast and the news is not good, there is a chance we might get some rain.

Here is what I have found - http://wwwa.accuweather.com/world-fo...MANS|&metric=1 and http://www.weather.com/outlook/trave...ended/FRXX0048

I once read that the phrase "tomorrow's weather will be the same as Today's" stood more chance of being accurate than any calculated forecast.

Also check http://www.weather.com and http://www.metcheck.com both of which seem to change their minds everyday. So pack brollies and suncream as usual.

weather forecasts beyond 48 hours do not have my minimum trust. I will check Thursday night before departing.

Rain and Thunderstorms now looking possible:

I can't remember ever seeing lightning at Le Mans (except driving down on Friday night in 1998 - that was spooky at 3am!)

I agree because today was very hot so in this time when it's so hot we can wait for storms but we have to be optimistic.
We'll have a little rain....................

Ayse, check my link again. On pain of a ban, I got the powers that be to change the weather to 'Partly Cloudy'. Humblest apologies, but they couldn't manage blazing sunshine - it was all used up last year

Sadly I missed that year. My mates didn't and ran out of dry clothes very quickly.

If it is anything like the weekend - yes. Lots of sun screen and lots and lots of water - you'll be wanting to find some shade too....

obviously, it's going to be very hot, thus bringing risks for thunderstorms (doesn't mean it will actually rain at Le Mans)


sorry, boss ...

Bernard's referring to the Village at the circuit near the pits (shops/bars/food outlets etc.) where we've got the 10 Tenths meet on Sat/Sun. The old Village has been demolished (along with most of the beautiful big old shady trees) and replaced with a new modern Village which appears to be devoid of shade since the old trees have been replaced with saplings!
