Sunday weather - dry race forecast 07 Mar 2004
Welcome to the first race day of the 2004 FIA Formula One World Championship, at the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne.
As has been the case all weekend it's cloudy with a noticeable south-westerly wind, but warm, with a current temperature of 13 degrees C, which is expected to rise to 21C as the day progresses.
The good news is that the chances of rain have receded, to no more than 10 percent, so the first race of the year should be a dry one at Albert Park.
