We will experience typical “typical” Florida weather this weekend at Daytona International Speedway for the Coke Zero 400. What is typical Florida weather? Mostly-to-partly-sunny days, hot with highs near 90 and humid. If you’ve ever been to Florida in the summer, then you know a spot shower or storm is likely at anytime during the afternoon. These storms leave as quickly as they form and are more miss than hit.

Forecast this weekend is mostly dry – yes a stray shower, storm or two can’t be ruled out – but I don’t expect any rain to force a rescheduled Sunday race like last weekend in Kentucky.
