PHOENIX NASCAR WEATHER FORECAST

2014 Phoenix International Raceway Weather Forecast: Threat of Rain in the Desert

LOOK AT RADAR:

Need to hit refresh to refresh the Radar image…

11:30 a.m. Update – Rain showers around Phoenix International Race way continue to be either to the east or the west and missing the track completely. In my weather forecast over on SBNation.com, I mentioned there could be windows of opportunity, and we are seeing one of these with Sprint Cup practice. How long will this window last, hard to tell. I looked over new forecast data this morning and while there are extended periods of dry where the track is located, rain and storms could form just about anywhere.

One of the toughest things to forecast around are mountains and valleys. I experience that here in Twin Falls, Idaho daily. The mountain ranges near and around the track could be the saving grace for most of the day.

SUNDAY’S WEATHER FORECAST:
Rain is expected to move out of the area early Sunday morning, with morning clouds giving way to afternoon sunshine, While Sunday will be mostly dry, there is a small chance that a few isolated pop-up showers could form during the afternoon. While one of these showers could hit the track, the likelihood is very low. The odds of having a rain shower hit Phoenix International Raceway on Sunday is around 15 percent.

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.

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 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.

NASCAR 2013 DAYTONA FORECAST

2013 NASCAR at Daytona: Coke Zero 400 weekend weather forecast

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.

Showers and storms likely for NASCAR at Kentucky Speedway 2013

Threat of showers and storms remain in the forecast for NASCAR at Kentucky Speedway today and Saturday. Today’s forecast is mostly dry with just a small chance of an isolated storm or two, Saturday has a much better chance of seeing showers and storms, especially Saturday afternoon and evening. The question is will the rain impact either the Nationwide race today and the Sprint Cup race tomorrow night.

Weather forecast for today looks mostly dry and warm. Afternoon temperatures will reach the mid 80s. and there is a small chance of an isolated shower or two for the afternoon and into the evening. Although there is a chance of a storm, the forecast and the race should stay mostly dry. Temperatures for the Nationwide race will be near 80 to start and the mid to low 70s by the checkered flag.

 

Forecast_sat_nascar_ky_medium

Saturday’s forecast is not as dry and not as warm. Disturbance dropping south across the Ohio Valley will spark scattered cluster of showers and storms Saturday afternoon into Saturday evening. The above animation has the highest threat of showers over Kentucky Speedway between 4 p.m. EDT and 8 p.m. EDT. Showers could end earlier than 8 p.m. or the could start later than 4 p.m., either way radar will need to be monitored Saturday afternoon and evening and there could be possible delays. Due to some of the uncertainty I am going to give the odds of racing Saturday night somewhere between 40 to 60 percent. I am staying cautiously optimistic.

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.
