NASCAR at Martinsville Fall of 2012 – Racing For the Sprint Cup and Sandy

0

Martinsville Speedway appears to be nestled between a stalled cold front to the west and hurricane Sandy to the east. What does this mean for today’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race? It means we should be able to get the race in and completed with few, if any, interruptions.

Sandy will continue to move slowly northward during he day Sunday. This will bring a breezy northerly wind. Speeds will range between 10 to 20 mph with some gust near 25 mph. Rain chance are minimal but there could be an isolated shower in the afternoon and I also expect pockets of drizzle through the morning.

Skies should be cloudy for the bulk of the day and temperatures will be in the low 60s through the afternoon. With the exception of wind, Martinsville Speedway feels very little affect from Sandy during the day today.

Monday_midday_eastern_us_medium

The above image is for Monday midday across the Mid-Atlantic and northeast. Weather conditions will be nasty from northern and eastern Virginia up through Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, New Jersey and the southern part of New England as Sandy prepares to make landfall Monday evening.

I bring this up, not because it will impact today’s NASCAR race but it could have a major impact on fans going home from the race Monday. You probably have heard from the Weather Channel and various meteorologist that Sandy could very well be a “Once in a lifetime” storm. Is it hype? In my opinion, no.

Most meteorologist haven’t seen anything quite like this, we are breaking new ground on a storm like this and we want to make sure the public is safe and not take any chances down playing the potential damage and impact this storm will have. If you re going to the race and have to travel to the states I listed, I’d leave as soon as the race is over. You’ll still have some nasty weather to deal with but not to the magnitude the later you wait.

Please follow me on Twitter @NASCAR_WXMAN and like me on Facebook. I plan on making updates on the race weather as well as on Sandy. For my complete detailed hour-by-hour forecast visit SBNation.com

2012 Martinsville Speedway Weather Forecast: Small Threat Of Rain Saturday

1

FORECAST UPDATE SATURDAY 3 AM EDT (3/31/2012):

Mother Nature is expected to play nice this weekend at Martinsville Speedway. The only weather concern we have is for possible scattered rain showers and isolated storms Saturday. Weather WILL NOT be a factor for Sunday’s Sprint Cup race.

Weak storm system will push through the Ohio Valley dragging a cold front across western Virginia on Saturday. This could result in a few scattered showers or isolated storms during the morning and possibly the afternoon. The threat is low but because there is no way to know where a storm or shower may pop up, it could only take one to delay or threaten any of the days activities.

Sunday’s Sprint Cup race is much better. High pressure builds in behind the cold front giving way to mostly sunny skies, light winds and high temperatures in the low 70s.

2012 Martinsville Speedway Weather Forecast: Mostly Dry Weekend, Slight Chances Saturday

0

FORECAST UPDATE WEDNESDAY 10 PM EDT (3/28/2012):

Cold front that brought scattered showers and storms to western and southwestern Virgina Wednesday will push through followed by high pressure for Thursday. Thursday and Friday both look dry with mostly sunny skies on Thursday and a few more clouds on Friday.

Weak warm front slides back across the region Friday night into Saturday. This could spark a few isolated showers or storms Saturday but most of the time looks dry. This system exits and we are looking at partly sunny skies for Sunday’s Sprint Cup race.

2012 Martinsville Speedway First Look Weather Forecast: Chances Of Rain But Mostly Dry

0

FORECAST UPDATE TUESDAY 3 PM EDT (3/27/2012):

After the rain shorten race at Auto Club Speedway, NASCAR hopes to have better luck when it returns to the east coast and Martinsville Speedway. Both the Sprint Cup and Camping World Truck series are in action this weekend. Although I have a mention of showers in the forecast for Saturday and Sunday, it looks mostly dry.

Will be tracking a weak storm system moving through the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley Friday and Saturday. This system will drag behind a weak cold front. Along this boundary a few showers could form and are possible either Saturday or Sunday. The biggest challenge will be timing this system and determining how much moisture this system has to work with to create showers.

Keep in mind forecasts five to even seven days out can and many times will change especially when trying to time the arrival of a system and an associated weather fronts. The trend over the last few days has been to dry things out on Sunday, but until I see more solid evidence with each new updates I am going to leave the chance of showers in the forecast.

FORECAST UPDATE SUNDAY 5AM EDT:

Although Mother Nature had her way with practice and qualifying the race on Sunday will not have to worry about the weather. The only problem some may have will be with the chilly temperatures. Then again it is almost November.

We will start the morning with temperatures in the low 30s, expect frost on many of the Halloween pumpkins. At least the race wasn’t held at Pocono or New Hampshire this weekend. Instead of jet driers they would also need snow plows as many across the north east dig out from a foot to two feet in some locations.

The skies will be sunny and temperatures near or in the low 50s by the afternoon. The wind will be light and variable, we have a very nice fall afternoon for NASCAR Sprint Cup Racing.

Sunday : 
1:00 p.m EDT
Sprint Cup Race – Mostly sunny - temp: 52

FORECAST UPDATE THURSDAY 1 PM ET:

Cold front will move through the Mid-Atlantic and stall near the coast Friday into Saturday. Storm system will slowly move along this boundary Friday into Saturday bring it with it some steady rain showers. The good news, once this system passes high pressure builds in and clears out the rain and clouds late in the day Saturday with plenty of sunshine on Sunday. Temperatures will be very chilly over the weekend. Highs are expected to be in the low 50s and lows will drop into the 30s at night.

Although I don’t think Martinsville Speedway will see snow there could be snow in the western and northern Mountains in Virginia as this storm system moves in Friday and exits on Saturday. It is possible that some flakes could mix in but overall I don’t think we will see snow.

Look for my detailed weather forecast along with full on-track schedule at SBNation.com later this afternoon/evening.
