Once again, an updated calendar for the World Solar Challenge (probably the last one). Weather (from www.accuweather.com) is for Darwin up until the 18th, and then for the places indicated. The long-range forecast for the last days of the race has been different every time I have checked, so it should be taken with a grain of salt.

Long-range forecasts ALWAYS should be taken with a grain of salt!
Indeed. After about 10 days or so, most predictions border on the fictional, I think.
Of course, for Darwin during the Wet Season, “hot and rainy” is a fairly safe forecast even at very long range.
bom.gov.au is what i’m looking at, and only 7 days ahead
I wanted to throw in long-range weather, unreliable though it might be. When it gets to the race itself, I’ll look at bom.gov.au too.
