2013 NASCAR Season

NASCAR 2013 HOMESTEAD FORECAST

NASCAR at Homestead-Miami Speedway Race Day Weather Forecast 2013

Mostly sunny and dry weather is on tap for the final Sprint Cup Series race of the 2013 NASCAR season at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Your last NASCAR weather forecast for the 2013 season is calling for mostly to partly sunny skies this afternoon in South Florida. Temperatures will be warm reaching the mid 80s in the afternoon and a stiff east wind between 10 and 15 mph will make for a breezy afternoon and evening. Other than that no weather problems are expected for the Ford EcoBoost 400.

Nov_severe_threat_medium

While weather will not be a concern in south Florida this afternoon, the same can not be said for the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley. While this has nothing to do with today’s Sprint Cup race, many fans live in these areas and could be impacted by severe weather.

When you think of severe weather and severe weather outbreaks you don’t normally think of the month of November, but severe can and does occur. Strong storm system along with it’s trailing cold front will spark a line of strong to severe storms across Illinois, Indiana, southern Michigan, and northern Kentucky. Many of these places, not only have NASCAR fans but even NASCAR tracks.

Threat today, especially later this afternoon and evening will be a line of strong to severe storms with strong damaging winds, hail and even the threat of tornadoes. It will be important for all fans in these areas to monitor local media coverage and pay close attention to changing weather. I will do what I can to push important weather information out through Twitter, so follow me @NASCAR_WXMAN and like me on Facebook for weather updates later today.

On one final note, I just want to thank all of you who take the time to read my weather column here on SBNation.com. Through your support and even your following on Social Media you have opened new doors and opportunities for me in NASCAR and in broadcasting. You, the NASCAR fan, are the reason I do weather forecasts and updates each and every week during the NASCAR season. I am just like you, a fan, I take time off work, travel, and spend money for that great NASCAR experience. In all of these plans, the last thing I want is bad weather to ruin the experience and force me to leave or miss out on a race. My goal is to give you the most accurate weather forecast I can each and every week. I may not always get it right but I do my best and I do it for you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and look forward to doing it all over again in 2014.

NASCAR 2013 KENTUCKY FORECAST

NASCAR at Homestead-Miami Speedway weekend weather forecast 2013

NASCAR closes out the 2013 season in the same state it started, Florida, and with a similar threat of Florida showers for the weekend. The weather forecast is split with Saturday featuring the best chance for showers and Sunday nice, warm and mostly dry.

Storms system coming off the Gulf of Mexico will spread rain showers across south Florida today. Some of those showers could be heavy. The best chance of showers will be during the morning but a few are possible in the afternoon. Will monitor the radar as we go through the day

Sunday’s Sprint Cup finale looks mostly dry, warm with a mix of sunshine and clouds. There’s a small chance of an isolated shower developing on Sunday, but I think the threat is almost non existent.  Temperatures today and Sunday are nice and warm with afternoon highs in the low to  mid 80s.

Watching the rain move through Chicagoland Speedway. While it doesn’t look great if the rain free area to the west of the current rain at 1:15 pm holds then maybe they can get drying started. The only concern is the cold front and more rain associated with it moving through. Will continue to monitor.

2013 NASCAR at Atlanta Motor Speedway Radar and Weather Update

NASCAR 2013 NEW HAMPSHIRE FORECAST

2013 NASCAR at New Hampshire Motor Speedway Race Day Weather Forecast

I feel very confident that the NASCAR weather forecast at New Hampshire Motor Speedway for today’s Sprint Cup race is dry, but I’ve added a chance of an isolated storm.

Overall the weather forecast remains unchanged but with warmer temperatures and more moisture in the air a quick moving isolated shower or storm is possible, especially after at or after 2:00 p.m. EDT.

I am sticking with the mostly dry weather forecast for this afternoon, but isolated storms could pop-up on radar, and while the odds are very low (less than 10% in my opinion) one could come close or hit the track. For the latest updates follow me on Twitter @NASCAR_WXMAN and like me on Facebook.

NASCAR 2013 NEW HAMPSHIRE FORECAST

2013 NASCAR at New Hampshire Motor Speedway: Mostly Dry Forecast

The weather forecast for New Hampshire Motor Speedway this weekend is mostly dry, but there are a few chances of showers and thunderstorms.

An area of high pressure will try to build in over the northeast and New England. It will battle with a stalled cold front of the New England coast. This stalled cold front will have one weak storm system move northward along it that could bring a chance of a shower later this afternoon, and possibly again Saturday morning.

The threat of rain is not very high and nothing to worry about this weekend. I honestly don’t expect much if any delays from rain but if I had to give a probability of delays this weekend I’d say it was around 10 to 20 percent.

Like always I will keep an eye on the forecast and radar as we go through the weekend. For the latest updates follow me on Twitter @NASCAR_WXMAN and like me on Facebook.

NASCAR 2013 DAYTONA FORECAST

2013 NASCAR at Daytona: Coke Zero 400 race day weather forecast

After dealing with rain and the threat of rain the last several weekends, NASCAR finally gets a break with tonight’s Sprint Cup race at Daytona International Speedway.

High pressure located out over the Atlantic Ocean will continue to keep the eastern shores of Florida mostly dry. While there is a small chance of a pop-up shower or thunderstorm, most, if not all the rain activity, will take place through central and western Florida.

The weather forecast for today across Daytona Beach is partly to mostly sunny, hot and humid, with an afternoon high temperatures of near 90 degrees. There is a small chance of an isolated afternoon shower or storm, but with the sea breeze coming in from the east, the activity will be more inland away from Daytona International Speedway.

For the NASCAR Sprint Cup race, the Coke Zero 400, it will be partly cloudy with race temperatures in the low to mid 80s.

NASCAR 2013 DAYTONA FORECAST

2013 NASCAR at Daytona: Coke Zero 400 weather forecast remains unchanged

The weather forecast remains unchanged for NASCAR this weekend at Daytona International Speedway. Daytime temperatures will be hot with highs near 90 and it will be humid. High pressure located over the Atlantic will keep Daytona Beach and the eastern shores of Florida mostly dry. There is still the chance of a pop up shower or storm in the afternoon and early evening but most of the activity will be more inland away from the track.

The forecast for tonight’s Nationwide race is partly cloudy, very warm and humid. There is only a small chance of an isolated evening shower or storm but I don’t expect much if any delay. Same forecast can be expected Saturday night for the Sprint Cup race. Warm and humid, slight chance of an isolated evening storm, otherwise mostly dry.
