It is going to be another sunny day here in Spielberg today, but the forecast is less cheerful for race day.

The ambient temperature is currently 14 degrees Celsius and is expected to rise as high as 22 later on. Visibility is unlimited, humidity 55 percent, and there is a 24 km/h south-easterly wind, which is maintaining the morning's crispness.

Forecasters are now predicting a 50 percent chance of rain showers tomorrow, up from a 40 percent forecast yesterday, and the high will be around 21 degrees. This could create some problems with car set-up as the A1-Ring's surface is notoriously smooth and slippery even in the dry.
