Drivers had better make the most of today's dry conditions, because the weather forecast for the rest of the Japanese Grand Prix weekend has taken a major turn for the worst prior to critical race in the 2003 World Championships for Drivers and Constructors.

Temperatures will again reach around 24 degrees Celsius (75 Fahrenheit) today, and the partial cloudiness remains, but tomorrow there is now a 70 percent chance of rain as thunderstorms are expected in the Suzuka region. Based on performances in Indianapolis, that could be good news for Bridgestone's runners.
