This afternoon, the Singapore Grand Prix will be held again for the first time since 2019. During the day on race day, it was sunny. The shower chance decreases in the evening. The race starts Sunday at 13:00 UK time. It will be 8pm in Singapore at that time.

Singapore has a tropical climate. It is hot and humid all year round. Temperatures range between 30 and 34 degrees daily and at night it almost never gets colder than 25 degrees. Showers develop almost every day, and these can include severe thunderstorms. Rain tyres also came out on Saturday for most of the third free practice and qualifying session.

11 per cent chance of rain

If the race had been Sunday afternoon (local time), the chances of a shower were very slim as the sun showed well. Late in the afternoon and especially in the evening around 7pm, the shower chance decreases again to around 11 per cent according to Weather.com. So there is definitely a chance of a dry race as well.

Yet a shower during the race is also quite possible as the weather turns quickly in Singapore. Thus, it is also not out of the question that a big shower may still pass over the track just before the race start. This means the track will be wet at the start, but will dry very slowly during the race, given the humid climate. It also cannot be ruled out that the shower, possibly with thunderstorms, will lead to an interruption or a later start of the Singapore Grand Prix.
