Suzuka weather forecast

Discussion in 'Presto GP' started by Daniel Hansson, Oct 6, 2010.

  1. Hello everyone :)

    Here is the first forecast of two for the next race at Suzuka:

    The most probable weather in Suzuka is dry, with 25-30 % chance of rain at some point during the (24 hour) day. When it comes it often stays for a number of hours or a day, but showers are also possible. Medium rain intensity in the long rains, and up to heavy in the showers.


    The second forecast will come on tuesday the 12:th of October, at 18:00 UTC (19 UK summer time).


    For the second forecast I have put together a virtual shedule for the event:

    Day 1:
    11:00 - Practice
    14:00 - Qualifying

    Day 2:
    11:30 - Warmup
    14:00 - Race

    This is to be able to link the weather forecast for the days with the sessions.


    The second forecast:

    Day 1: Moderate rain will pass over, but it is likely to end sometime during the morning, so the sessions should be dry.

    Day 2: The day starts out dry, but showers are possible in the afternoon and evening. Usual duration is 30-50 mins and heavy in intensity.

    Perfect Daniel! Then I can use my rain setup with wing 12/65. It goes steady in dry condition as well:)

    The second fore cast is great. It gives you a good imagination of what can happen, without telling too much. The virtual deviding into days and giving the sessions time marks is a great idea in combination with discribing slightly how the weather on this days will be!

    thx mate!
     
  14. It sort of means you have to prepare presets for just about every kind of tyre.
     
  15. This strategy is good!
    but,
    I'm not really cope with it
    I come now to still stumble :-(
