Updated Weather Report For Le Mans Broadcast
We use rainviewer.com as our partner for the radar images. And they just did us a big favour and updated their rain and cloud cover overlay. This will give both teams and fans a much more detailed impression of when and where it will rain.
We have also updated to the faster animation speed, which should make it easier to predict and imagine where the clouds and precipitation are moving after the end of the animation.
But that is not all. Through our partnership with weather data provider DarkSky, we are overlaying a new 24-hour forecast. The forecast includes iconized information about the sky conditions, air temperature, risk of rain, and a predicted measure of the number of millimetres of rain per hour. Cloud cover and air temperature should be especially important to the teams, now that dynamic track temperatures have been introduced.
The new report graphics will go into the live broadcast in our hourly weather update and it will be available to teams and fans through https://weather.gtr24h.org
