Formula 1 heads to Montreal this weekend for the Canadian Grand Prix. The race is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, June 18 while airing on ABC. There will be two practice sessions on Friday followed by another practice and then qualifying on Saturday.

Max Verstappen won this event at the famous Circuit Gilles Villeneuve last year, and he did so in favorable weather conditions. That might not be the case this time around, as there’s a chance of precipitation in Montreal over the weekend. It might not be enough to delay the events, but it will be something to track, particularly heading into practice and qualifying.

Below we’ll take a look at those weather projections for the Canadian Grand Prix this weekend in Montreal, Canada, with info courtesy of AccuWeather. As always with the weather, forecasts are all tentative.
