NASCAR 2013 KENTUCKY FORECAST

Unsettled weather for NASCAR at Kentucky Speedway 2013

Unsettled weather is likely across the Blue Grass state for the NASCAR weekend at Kentucky Speedway. Moisture along with passing disturbances will provide a lot of uncertainty with this weekends forecast.

While there are chances of showers and storms for today and Friday for the Nationwide and Camping World Truck series races, the best chance for rain (as of now) is Saturday night’s Sprint Cup race.

I think there will be plenty of dry time for today and Friday, with just the chance of an isolated shower or storm at times. Highs in the afternoon will be in the mid 80s with race temperatures in the upper to mid 70s.

Saturday a disturbance drops in from the north, this looks like it could bring showers and storms across the Ohio Valley and could cause problems for Saturday night. It is going to come down to timing and I wouldn’t call Saturday a wash just yet but I am nervous about it. I will have to wait and see how the forecast plays out today and into Friday.

NASCAR 2013 DOVER FORECAST

2013 Dover International Speedway NASCAR Weather Forecast: Mostly Sunny and Hot

The NASCAR weather forecast for this weekend at Dover International Speedway is mostly dry. It will be very warm with highs both today and Saturday in the upper 80s to even near 90 degrees. There will be plenty of sunshine and no worry of rain for the Camping World Series Truck race tonight or the Nationwide Series race on Saturday.

Sunday for the NASCAR Sprint Cup race looks mostly dry but an approaching cold front could spark some scattered showers and storms in the afternoon. Like most fronts that move through it all comes down to timing. Based on current forecast trends, we should be able to get the whole race in before any rain arrives. I am just leaving in the mention of showers developing afternoon into evening on Sunday

NASCAR 2013 DAYTONA 500 FORECAST

NASCAR 2013 Daytona 500: Will Sunday’s Race be Washed Out?

0

Weather remains fairly quiet today and tomorrow as NASCAR prepares for Sunday’s Daytona 500. Warm temperatures are expected as we go through this afternoon and into Saturday. Highs will reach the low to mid 80s and it will even be a little humid. The only weather concern we have the next two days will be a slight chance of an isolated shower or thunderstorm on Saturday for the Nationwide Series race in the afternoon.

The main weather focus for this weekend at Daytona International Speedway is for Sunday’s 55th running of the Great American Race. Cold front moves in across northern Florida Saturday night and into Sunday, bringing a chance of rain and even a few thunderstorms. The front stalls over Daytona Beach on Sunday, and this will be the focusing mechanism for shower and storm develop during the afternoon and evening.

Since Wednesday the threat of rain has continually increased over northern and central Florida. While I stop short of calling a second straight rain out for the Daytona 500, there could definitely be some rain delays during the day, and possibly even rain shortened. The new Air Titan drier at Daytona International Speedway may be put to the test.

My odds of us seeing the complete Daytona 500 on Sunday is between 50% and 60%. I don’t like the trend I am seeing in the forecast, but it doesn’t look like a washout. I think we will see scattered showers and thunderstorms form through the morning and into the afternoon. When I say scattered showers, imagine dropping a handful of marbles onto the floor and they scattered all over the place. You don’t know where they will go and stop but they are there all over the floor. That’s the challenge of forecasting this kind of rain.

NASCAR 2013 DAYTONA 500 FORECAST

NASCAR 2013 Daytona 500: Rain Chances Increase for the Weekend

0

Unlike other sports, NASCAR starts its season with their premiere event, the Daytona 500. Weather is always a concern for NASCAR, but of all the weather forecasts I do during the year, this is the most important . In the 54-year history of the Great American Race, the Daytona 500 has only ran once on a Monday and that was last year. The question is, will history repeat itself?

Weather forecast for today’s Budweiser Duel is quite nice. Plenty of sunshine with temperatures this afternoon in the low to mid 70s.

Rain chances are on the increase for Daytona International Speedway Friday through Sunday. Friday’s rain threat is minimum as a weak surface disturbance passes by late in the day and into the evening. I think just a slight chance of an isolated shower or thunderstorm Friday afternoon and evening, but shouldn’t impact the Camping World Truck Series race.

Saturday, a cold front presses closer to north and central Florida during the afternoon. Like Friday, there is a slight chance of an afternoon shower or even an isolated thunderstorm. Although the chance of rain is worth mentioning, Saturday afternoon’s Nationwide Series race should remain mostly dry with just a very small chance of a delay.

Cold front slides through and stalls close to Daytona International Speedway on Sunday. Rain chances have increased over the last few days, enough to mention the chance of a shower during the Great American race. This worries me some, but at this point I am confident in thinking we will see the 55th running of the Daytona 500 on Sunday. I am stopping short of saying the race is totally dry. Stalled cold fronts that close to an event always make me nervous. Couple miles shift north or south with these boundaries could mean the difference between a totally dry race, and a rain delayed race. Probability of seeing a race on Sunday, better than 70%.

2012 NASCAR Talladega Superspeedway Weather Forecast: Weather Changes Take Place This Weekend

0

The main challenge this NASCAR weekend at Talladega Superspeedway will be the development and placement of isolated storms across Alabama.

Not a bad weather weekend for NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and Sprint Cup Series at Talladega Superspeedway. The weather will go through drastic changes this weekend as far as temperatures but will remain mostly dry.

Cold front will move in across Alabama Saturday night into early Sunday morning. The biggest impact this weekend from the cold front will be temperatures. They will go from highs in the 80s today and Saturday to highs in the 60s on Sunday. There is a slight chance of showers Saturday evening into early Sunday morning but there isn’t a lot of moisture to work with so any activity will be spotty at best. Rain is not a major concern this weekend.

ATLANTA MOTOR SPEEDWAY NASCAR WEATHER FORECAST 2012

2012 NASCAR At Atlanta Motor Speedway: Hit Or Miss Showers And Storms This Weekend

0

FORECAST UPDATE FRIDAY 6:00 a.m. EDT (8/30/2012):

Scattered rain showers and a few thunderstorms are in the weather forecast this weekend for Atlanta Motor Speedway. I don’t expect a race to be washed out, but a shower or storm moving over the track could cancel a practice or a qualifying.

What do I mean when I use the word “scattered?”

Imagine you have a bag of marbles and you dump the marbles on the floor. What do the marbles do, they scatter all over the floor. You can’t predict where the marbles will land all you know is they will stop at random points on the floor. That’s similar to the rain showers we can expect this weekend. Hard to know where a rain shower will form but if showers and storms start to form then the threat of a shower or storm hitting the track increases and the radar needs to be watched.
