Miami GP 2024 Weather: Latest forecast for F1 race in Florida

With some of the toughest weather conditions on the F1 calendar, find out the latest forecast for the 2024 Miami Grand Prix in Florida, USA


As Formula 1 returns to the vibrant streets of Miami for its second sprint weekend of the season, the spotlight is on the weather forecast for the 2024 Miami Grand Prix, which could play a crucial role in shaping race strategies.

With a mix of sunshine, potential light rain, and gusty winds, teams and fans are gearing up for an unpredictable and exciting weekend at the Miami International Autodrome. Beyond the racing lines, the Miami GP is a complete entertainment package, promising thrills both on and off the track.

The 2024 Miami GP is a Sprint weekend, so will feature just one practice session followed by Sprint Qualifying and the Sprint Race, before Qualifying and the grand finale on Sunday, which ensures the excitement levels remain high throughout the weekend.

Here’s a detailed look at what the Miami weather has in store, promising a blend of challenges and opportunities for drivers and F1 teams alike.

Friday, May 3 – Practice and Sprint Qualifying

The weekend kicks off under sunny skies on Friday, with a dry day anticipated. However, the weather at the Miami street circuit will be far from calm, with strong easterly winds reaching speeds of up to 40 km/h, accompanied by possible gusts. Temperatures are expected to hover around 27-28°C during the first free practice and sprint qualifying sessions, with the probability of rain remaining below 20%.

Saturday, May 4 – Sprint Race and Qualifying

Saturday continues the trend of sunshine, though clouds will gather occasionally, possibly leading to some light afternoon rain. Despite the increased chance of precipitation—still a modest 30%—conditions for the sprint race should remain predominantly dry with the mercury again around 27°C. Similar weather is expected for the qualifying rounds, keeping teams on their toes with variable conditions.

Sunday, May 5 – Main Race

Partly cloudy skies on Sunday morning may offer a brief shower, but any wet weather is predicted to clear as the day progresses, there’s a 25% chance of showers during the race. The FIA weather forecast expects sunshine by the time the race starts, and a dry run to the chequered flag. Wind conditions will mirror those of the previous days, and with steady temperatures around 27°C, drivers will likely face few weather-related challenges.
