Le Mans Test Day next Sunday looks like it will have good weather. There will be a cold front approaching northern France from the northwest, but it appears that precipitation with the front will hold off until Sunday night and Monday. The trend of the latest model runs is toward a slower approach of the front, so this lends confidence toward the rain holding off until after the test. It does appear that clouds will be increasing through the day, with partly cloudy skies in the morning becoming mostly cloudy in the afternoon. Winds will be shifting from south in the morning to southwest in the afternoon. Temperatures will be comfortable, with highs in the lower 70s.
