As the FIA Formula One World Championship enters its final phase, the 17th round, the Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka, looks set to cause some upsets on the weather front.

It will be partly cloudy with an ambient temperature high of 25 degrees Celsius today, but after that there will be stormy weather for the rest of the weekend. Temperatures will remain around 23 to 25 degrees, but there will be showers on Friday followed by heavy storms on Saturday and scattered storms on Sunday.

Just the weather to spring an unusual result.
