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.

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 Saturday 9:00 AM ET:

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.
