As the last hours until the 2010 championship finale wind down, there is a threat of showers in Abu Dhabi.

Even though a huge sandy desert sits just outside the plush Yas Marina, there has been rare rain in the area in recent days, including a downpour that wet the track on Friday.

In mid afternoon on Sunday, with just over two hours to go until the evening race at 5pm, the official Meteo France radar screens on the pitwall are showing showers in the surrounding area.

But until now, it has been hot and dry, with partly cloudy skies and a hazy sky after high overnight winds.
