    More Showers Possible for Tour de France

    The Tour de France, which started in England this year, spent one final day across the English Channel on Monday before heading back to its home country. The weather held up so far through two stages however showers around London on Monday.

    The stage, starting in Cambridge headed southeast to Chelmsfold, before turning to the southwest on their way to London, where the stage finsihed at Buckingham Palace.

    On a windier day this stage could have posed even more difficulties to the teams, instead, with a gentle southwesterly breeze, the wind was not a major issue. A stronger wind would have lead to a change in tactics by the teams.

    When the Tour returns to France on Tuesday, the weather is expected to be very similar, as showers could again impact the results.

    Overall the current outlook for the next several stages of the Tour looks unsettled as a large upper level trough will sit over western and central Europe bringing the threat for at least some showers and perhaps a brief downpour to several of the stages.
