There’s going to be a mixed day today as far as the weather’s concerned. If the rain holds off, then there shouldn’t be too many surprises. If it starts coming down during racing then things could get interesting, and Sam Hill will probably win by about 10 seconds. The women’s event kicks off at 12:15pm and the men’s 1pm English time. Here’s a little weather forecast courtesy of Google.
And here’s a shot of Michael Fish who famously said, in 1987, “…don’t worry, there isn’t a storm coming”, about six hours before the biggest storm to hit Britain since 1703 rocked up, killing 19 people and rendering weather forecasts completely pointless.
