The rain swept through and amped up the degree of difficulty on the technical city circuit in a crash heavy U23 men's road race on Saturday and judging by the forecast there is also potential for the wet weather to play a part in Sunday's Road World Championships finale, with thundery showers in the forecast for the day of the women's elite/U23 race.

"A bright day with sunny spells and showers, the showers becoming heavy and perhaps thundery at times," said the Sunday forecast for Strathclyde – the region Glasgow is in – from the Met office. "The southwesterly breeze eases this afternoon with showers becoming slow moving, perhaps giving some locally prolonged downpours."
