The Canadian Grand Prix events taking place this weekend, will benefit from a decent forecast. Saturday appears perfect at this time, with nothing but sunshine, and temperatures near 26C (80F). Sunday is a little suspect at this time. It will be warm and humid, near 30C (86F), but with a decent chance of afternoon thunderstorms, some of which may put down a quick deluge of rain. Of course the Canadian Grand Prix is no stranger to thunderstorms, with the 2011 race taking place in a flash flood at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. Heading to the track this weekend bring plenty of water, sunscreen and perhaps an umbrella as well. Warm and humid weather is forecast to persist into next week, with numerous showers and thunderstorms and temperatures in the mid to upper 20s.
