Consistent late-spring conditions will be present for this weekend's race for the Kyalami 9 Hour. Low temperatures each day are expected in the upper teen's C, low 60's F, with afternoon high temperatures reaching the upper 20's C, low to mid 80's F. Pop up showers and thunderstorms are possible each day, especially in the afternoons, which may lead to cooler afternoon temperatures than predicted, depending on where the rain falls. Mostly clear to partly cloudy skies will be present during the mornings, but will give way to mostly cloudy conditions as storms begin firing off. Surface winds will stay mostly the same through the weekend, coming from the North during the mornings, then shifting to the Northwest during the afternoons.
