2024 IndyCar Series - Detroit Grand Prix weather forecast

The 2024 IndyCar series returns this weekend (Friday May 31st to Sunday June 2nd) for the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix.

The sixth race of the season comes hot on the heels of the Indy 500, which saw Team Penske's Josef Newgarden win the iconic race for the second year in a row last Sunday.

However, after the delayed start in Indianapolis last weekend, the big question is: what is the forecast looking like for this weekend's Detroit Grand Prix?

Here's everything you need to know.

What will the weather be like for the 2024 Detroit Grand Prix?

Unlike last weekend for the Indy 500, the rain is expected to stay away in Detroit on June 2nd.

According to BBC Weather, there is a 6-8% chance of rain on Sunday morning, which drops to 3% by the time of the race start (12:30pm ET).

It's also set to be a hot one on Sunday, with temperatures slated to reach an afternoon high of 82.4F by the late afternoon, although it will likely be around 75F for the race start. Cloud cover is expected throughout the day, however.

Friday and Saturday are expected to remain dry for the practice and qualifying sessions respectively, with showers only becoming a strong possibility on Saturday evening long after qualifying has finished (barring any major delays).
