FORECAST UPDATE TUESDAY 3 PM EDT (4/10/2012):

Before I could even look at this weekend’s NASCAR weather forecast at Texas Motor Speedway my Twitter stream was getting a lot of questions about the potential for severe weather this weekend around Dallas/Fort Worth. I agree with preliminary reports that this weekend could feature the potential for severe storms, the biggest challenge and question is the timing of when this activity could form and arrive.

Most of the time this week will feature mostly dry conditions with highs ranging from the mid to upper 70s with 80s by the weekend. By Friday we will be watching and trying to time the arrival of a few disturbances that could cause shower and storm development Friday, Saturday and Saturday night. A lot of this we won’t have specific information on until areas of showers and storms begin to form or we start to see development of storms. I am going to mention the chance of showers and storms around Texas Motor Speedway Friday and Saturday but there are some indications that this time frame is more dry than wet.

I am concerned anytime there is a threat of severe weather especially when it corrisponds with an outdoor sporting event. The threat is there for Northern and Eastern Texas sometime this weekend but timing of its development is still unknown. There is still a lot of time for things to change between now and then.

If I was going this weekend to Texas Motor Speedway I wouldn’t let the current forecast keep me home. I feel this will be an ever changing forecast with frequent updates. I will also have a Rockingham
