26-30 July - Check the Goodwood weather forecast before choosing your outfit for Glorious Goodwood.
On the day of the race the course officials will check the course conditions and inform the owners and jockeys. This information also helps those who have an interest in the race.
Owners will be looking for the course to be classed as 'good' which means the ground will be neither too hard or too soggy.
Kevin McConway, Emeritus Professor of Applied Statistics at The Open University, helps to explain the nature of probability and how weather forecasting and horse racing are unlikely partners when it comes to beating the odds.
As one of the top two performing weather forecasting centres in the world, Met Office forecasts are highly valued. Continuing improvements in accuracy with, for example, four day forecasts today being as accurate as a one day forecast back in the 1980s, enable the public and society to take a wider range of weather related decisions with more confidence. The chaotic nature of weather does mean that there are unavoidable limitations to what we can predict. However, by calculating the confidence in a weather forecast we aim to give people a clear picture of any uncertainties.
