2012 Texas Motor Speedway Weather Forecast: Potential Severe Weather Threat
I think the risk for a severe weather outbreak Saturday night during the NASCAR Sprint Cup race is low. Most of this forecast Friday night and Saturday looks mostly dry. Yes, all the reports you are seeing from other outlets are correct, there is a severe weather threat this weekend for north Texas, including Dallas/ Fort Worth. From what I am seeing, it appears that threat is later in the weekend going into Sunday and not Saturday.
DISCLAIMER: Just because I think the worst and the main severe threat is on Sunday rather than Saturday that doesn’t mean there isn’t a threat of storms and that some could be severe on Saturday. I am fully planning on watching the radar Saturday afternoon for any develop that could threaten the start or any part of the race at Texas Motor Speedway.
There is a threat of severe storms in Texas on Saturday and at this point it appears to be more west and northwest of Forth Worth extending into Oklahoma. The threat is close enough that storms could stray into the area and would need to be monitored.
For Friday and the Nationwide race, I expect a mostly dry with just a very small chance of an isolated storm.
