Saturday weather update - rain and fog 28 Aug 2004
Welcome back to Spa-Francorchamps where the Belgian Grand Prix, 14th round of the 2004 FIA Formula One World Championship, is currently on hold because of the weather.
It began raining immediately after yesterdays afternoon practice session and it hasnt stopped since. This mornings practice sessions will resume once there is sufficient visibility to allow the medical helicopter to land and take off. Its not actually Spa that is holding this up, but the conditions in nearby Liege.
Conditions here are relatively clear but saturated. Real rain, as the locals call it, as opposed to yesterdays light rain, will be a feature of the day, with a temperature high of 16 degrees Celsius.
Tomorrow, however, the locals predict a dry day. Well have to wait and see, but they are usually right.
