It will change at least five times between now and next month. I'm just hoping for no ridiculous lightning this year or massive hailstones.

Weather is not something you can predict one month up front. A few days max. So this threat is rather useless for the next 28 days. Sorry to be a killjoy and a spoilsport.

For years now the weather and the R word come up in different threads. Everybody likes to speculate about the weather, mostly complaining. THIS is the SUNNY side, and yes even tomorrows weather is always hard to predict.

I wouldn't leave my umbrella at home. And a raincoat will be in my bag as well.

We all know that bringing r-gear is the best way to ensure sun.
If you count on r... there will be sun (I'm sure Ayse will disagree )

Wellies are basically the only type of shoes I hate. I'd rather change socks dozen times than use wellies.

If it rains wear sandals without socks, solves problems completely, then just wash feet

Nokia was quite recently sold to Microsoft so...I'm not satisfied with the current Microsoft Wellies catalog.

But actually I developed my aversion against wellies many years ago in the military. Whether it was +30 or -20, dress code outside the barracks was always wellies instead of combat boots.

See your point about the army.

Not sure Wellies 8 is going to be any better than Windows 8 either though!

My friend once told me how during his service they had one guy in the winter camp whose wellies literally froze to his feets and they couldn't get them off...

Ahh the joys on conscription. Should've chosen civilian service as I did, no wellie issues (or any of that crap) sure everybody makes fun of you but doing just standard 36,15 office hours & living full time in your own home is rather nice

As for the question - wet weather for say morning warm-up and Group C race would be enough rain for this year, the rest can be totally dry (partly because I don't wanna see them pussying behind SC for no reason when it rains a little more - which is the current trend... and especially now with Webber there)

I'd take some of this weather they are having right now at Le Mans for the MotoGP.

Looks like it's cracking the flags.

When we are talking about weeks... It isn't just hard to predict, but almost impossible because it just becomes a crapshoot. It's kind of funny that all these weather sites make these long predictions because they are useless in terms of "sunny or rain". Rain can be predicted accurately for 0.5-2 days. If you see rain in rain radar, then believe it.
