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.

NASCAR at Homestead 2012 Race Day Weather forecast: Another Small Chance of Showers

0

Mostly dry weather expected for the final Sprint Cup series race of the 2012 NASCAR season at Homestead-Miami Speedway. All weekend there has been a stalled front just off the eastern coast of Florida. This has been the focusing mechanism for isolated showers near and around Homestead-Miami Speedway all weekend. Will we see rain? More than likely not but with that front in close proximity to the track we can’t rule them out.

Although there is a small chance of an isolated afternoon shower, I don’t expect a race ending or postponing shower. I am not going to rule out a shower that causes a delay or two but overall I think the likelihood of rain affect the track this afternoon is ten percent or less.

Please follow me on Twitter @NASCAR_WXMAN and like me on Facebook for the latest weather updates through the week.

On a personal note, I want to thank all of you who are fans of what I do and follow me on Twitter and now on Facebook. As a fan who either spends their hard earned money to go to a race or those who organizes their entire Sunday afternoon, Saturday night or the occasional Monday afternoon, to sit at home and watch a race I understand how important having accurate weather information is. I am a fan too and just like you I plan my Sunday’s and the occasional trip to a NASCAR track around the weather. All of you who follow me on Twitter, Facebook, over on SBNation.com, listen to me on Sirius-XM NASCAR Morning Drive and occasionally on PRN, you’re the reason I do this, thank you.

Three years ago I was just like all of you, a NASCAR fan. I was watching a race, listening to the commentators talk about approaching rain but never showing those watching a radar or just how long it would take the rain to arrive. Then there is always the fun rain delay where you listen and every announcer says, “We will be going racing anytime” when in reality it is more likely a Monday afternoon race. Knowing that, and having the skills as a meteorologist, NASCAR WXMAN (wx = abbreviation for weather) was born. I am still that fan and I am a fan of all of you. This sport has the greatest fans and you make this so much fun. Each week, NASCAR weather forecasts are a hobby. I am starting to make a little money off them but I am not going to stop my main weather gig as Chief Meteorologist at KMVT-TV in Twin Falls, ID anytime soon. Again from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU. I will try to do updates from time to time and feel free to ask questions and let me know what you may  be interested in.

NASCAR FORECAST HOMESTEAD NOV 2012

NASCAR at Homestead 2012 Weather forecast: Small Chance of Showers

0

Stalled front just off the eastern coast of Florida will keep a small threat of showers across southeast Florida today and even into Sunday. Although there is a threat of showers, it doesn’t look to be anything that would delay or postpone any races.

We will see a mix of sunshine and clouds today but with that stalled boundary just off to the east, a stray shower can’t be ruled out. It will be nice and warm with highs near 80 degrees.

Sunday’s Sprint Cup finale looks mostly dry and mostly sunny. An isolated showers could form late in the day, but I am confident that any shower that may form won’t cause any massive problems. I still expect mostly dry conditions this weekend.

RED FLAG FORECAST UPDATE 6:00 PM EST:

It just took one brief downpour to put NASCAR’s final race under an extended red flag. Looking at radar, there’s not much out there. If you follow me here or on Twitter you’ve heard me say, “It’s not the rain you see but the rain you don’t that you have to worry about” and this is the case this evening.

Personally I think once we get this race restarted we are good. The odds of an another isolated shower to hit Homestead-Miami Speedway is around 10 to 20 percent. I don’t feel like we see another one but that doesn’t mean we won’t. I’ll keep you updated.

6:00 p.m EST
Sprint Cup  Race  – Patchy Clouds, isolated threat of a shower – temp: 76

FORECAST UPDATE Sunday 3:30 AM EST:

Hard to believe the NASCAR season is almost over, but the 2011 season comes down to one race Homestead-Miami Speedway. We have heard all week “nothing will stand in the way” of Tony Stewart or Carl Edwards when it comes to them winning 2011 Sprint Cup. The only thing that could “stand in their way” is something neither Edwards or Stewart can control, the weather.

Mother Nature has had some fun with NASCAR this season and she would be a very unwelcomed guest if she brought rain to NASCAR’s final party. It appears she will end the season being a fan of NASCAR. The forecast for Sunday looks similar to what we saw Saturday at Homestead-Miami. Clouds, and sunshine with gusty winds. Temperatures will be comfortable near 80 to mid 75.

There is just a small chance of an isolated shower. Winds have been coming onshore all weekend, and we have seen, on occasion, a few small showers form from this flow off the Atlantic. This is why I mention an isolated threat of showers. The threat is very low and seems very unlikely, but it still needs to be mention.

Thank you all for visiting my site each and every week, and if you are new, welcome and please feel free to come back in 2012. Looking at my web stats, 2011 was my best season ever for visitors and I am truly flattered and grateful, again thank you. I do this cause I love weather and I love the sport of NASCAR. I feel it is important to all fans, whether your going to the track that weekend or just staying at home, to have the best most accurate weather forecast available. I am just like you, a fan and whether you are blocking off a whole afternoon to watch a race or spending hundreds of dollars to support the sport you love you need to know what the weather is going to be like and you need it in a way so you can make the best decision you can. Whether it is time or money you are making an investment and we all want to get the most out of our investment. That is what I think about when I put each of my forecasts together. I don’t get every forecast right and those are tough weeks cause I feel like I let a lot of people down. It just motivates me to  be better the next week.

I plan on making changes to this site in 2012. I am open to suggestions on what you would like to see added or removed. What would make this site better for you? Also, I don’t want to stop updating just because the season is over. I can’t do personal forecasts for everyone but what would you like to see discussed or posted here during the off season? Please this is more your site than mine. I welcome all ideas.

FORECAST UPDATE Saturday 2 AM EST:

Rain was a problem for NASCAR at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Friday but it looks like Saturday and Sunday could be a little better. I am not going to keep rain totally out of the forecast but there will be more dry time than wet in my professional opinion.

Few scattered showers are possible during the morning hours Saturday. This would not be good for the Sprint Cup drivers as they are making up Friday’s schedule Saturday morning. The good news is the likelihood of these scattered showers decreases after 7am EST in the morning.

Although there could be a slight chance of an isolated shower or two, the rest of the weekend, the threat of showers like Friday are less and less. The weekend forecast for both Saturday and Sunday feature sunshine and clouds and an isolated shower or two with highs near 80…

FORECAST UPDATE Sunday 10:00 AM ET:

This is my last  NASCAR weather forecast for the 2010 Season. I started this blog one year ago. Who would have thought a NASCAR fan who just happened to be a meteorologist sitting at home watching races and realizing fans needed more weather information than just, “Looks like these crew chiefs better have a plan cause rain is on the way” Thanks to twitter I had a place to give fans a weather report and also let them know when the rain may occur and how long or how bad the rain may be. From there it just exploded with almost 3,000 twitter followers and a great place like SBNation.com, 4wide.com and here as a places to post my weather forecasts. Again to all of you, thank you.
Weather Forecast: More than likely this is a dry forecast for today’s final NASCAR race, but with an on shore flow of wind coming in off the Atlantic there could be enough moisture around for a pop-up shower or sprinkle. I think any rain that does form will be brief but enough to cause a caution or red flag situation. As the race goes on I will keep you updated on current weather conditions via Twitter and this site.

I feel confident that the race is dry and the day will be partly sunny for Sunday but there is just enough data that leads me to mention the smallest possibility of an isolated pop up shower. I mean it is Florida after all. I likelihood of actually getting a shower is very small. I want to stress that.
