Formula One World Championship, Rd5, Spanish Grand Prix, Circuit de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain., 28 April 2002

Welcome to the start of the Spanish Grand Prix at the Circuit de Catalunya, fifth round of the 2004 FIA Formula One World Championship. Today’s weather will reach a high of 16 degrees Celsius, and the skies will be partly cloudy.

That seems to be the forecast for most of the weekend. It will be 17 degrees tomorrow, 16 again on Saturday, and 18 on Sunday, each day having some cloud. There is also a reasonable chance of rain showers on both Friday and Saturday afternoon, possibly towards the evening. It remains to be seen whether this disrupts Formula One practice and qualifying, or the Formula 3000 qualifying and race.
