The Spanish Grand Prix could become the first wet race in the 2008 Formula 1 season. Forecasts in Spain predict rain on Saturday and Sunday while it should remain dry all day on Friday.

Formula 1 teams are used to brilliant weather in Spain, but this year's Spanish Grand Prix will not be as sunny as usual. Temperatures are expected to stay as low as 19 degrees Celsius on Friday and even a bit lower on Saturday and Sunday

was there any gp this year without rain predictions?

There was no rain prediction for Melbourne for the Saturday and the Sunday (it was predicted to be >35 degrees celcius and it was).

Bahrain didn't have any rain predictions for the entire GP.

Malaysia rained heavily across the whole GP weekend, none of which affected any F1 sessions.

Rain would be especially good at Catalunya because all the teams have tested their way into perfect setups and subsequently they've tested themselves out of interesting dry racing there. But as always, no weather predictions matter until it actually precipitates.

Cloudy according to autosport. And I saw a glimpse of a report saying that Spain was in a draught. Which is unfortunate.

Well I know its raining in Wales at the weekend cause it always does, it'll be rainging in England cause it always does, It'll be raingin in Scotland, cause it always does......

The Northern Territories are looking hot and dry for the weekend, appart from that, I don't think we can ever rely on the weather anywhere after last year.

Shame I love good wet race..........can't be it when it's damp.....oh baby!!!!!

They should shut the door, then.

I mean, a drought would be a problem, but a small flow of air in a corridor shouldn't be a national disaster.

I would hope there is rain, as like Hungary '06 it is the only variable that could make racing at the track even remotely interesting. And we all remember what a barn burner of a Grand Prix that was... probably more overtaking then there has been as all the previous Spanish snoozing siestas in Barcelona combined!

I think we need rain, wet race at least one or two in a season. If not GP Spain it should happens elsewhere thereafter.

Weather seems to be uneasily predictable, as the result of global warming probably :)

We would all love the rain for different reasons and in Barcelona they'd love it especially since they are facing a very bad summer with water restrictions due to a very long drought, it is true that it has raines recently but not as much as needed.

For the common good, race fans included, I hope it rains a lot.
