NASCAR 2013 Weather Forecast at Charlotte: NASCAR All-Star Race

Conditions in Charlotte, NC:
Click here for Current Weather ConditionsLook at Doppler Radar | Mobile Friendly Site | Mobile Radar

A disturbance moving into North Carolina today will spread showers and thunderstorms across the state this morning and into the afternoon. Showers and storms expected to become more broken and scattered by the late afternoon and evening. This will need to be watched because this could cause potential weather delays for the NASCAR Sprint Cup All-Star race.

It appears much of the showers and storms will occur through the late morning into the early afternoon then becoming more broken and scattered during the evening. This still means showers and storms are a threat near the beginning of the All-Star race. With it being at night this causes issues with track drying since we won’t have the assistance of the sun to dry the track.

DO WE RACE TONIGHT?
I’d give the odds of getting a race in tonight around 50 to 60% but it could come with possible rain delays, especially towards the beginning. These kind of forecast are just tough because you can’t necessarily lock down timing or location of some of these showers and storms. This is what is challenging about these forecasts and knowing for certain if a race will happen or for how long. Will monitor it today and later tonight.

Looks like another nice weekend for racing this week at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the Sprint All-Star race Saturday night and the Camping World Truck Series N.C. Education Lottery 200 Friday night.

Just quiet weather expected for Friday and Saturday. Both days feature mostly sunny skies and high temperatures near 80. Could be a little bit of a breeze on Friday but other than that I don’t see any weather issues in Charlotte. As for the Nationwide Race in Iowa on Sunday I will have a forecast for that out sometime later today.

FORECAST DISCUSSION Saturday 10:00 AM EDT:

Skies and Radar will need to be monitored as we go through the day today. Already seen some light showers move over the track this morning and more could fire later this morning and afternoon. Some could produce a few strong storms. These are more hit and miss and I still feel like we could get the race in. It appears that a lot of the activity could begin to decrease as we had into the evening. Now, there is still a risk for showers and storms around the track when the race starts so we will still need to monitor the radars and sky closely.

FORECAST DISCUSSION Friday 7:00 PM EDT:

It will continue to be unsettled for Saturday and Saturday evening. A disturbance will keep the atmosphere prime for shower and even thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. Some storms do have the potential to be strong and maybe even severe. Not knowing when or where these storms form Saturday afternoon I can’t say it will be a rain out but the radars and sky will need to be monitored as the day wears on.

FORECAST DISCUSSION Friday 10:00 am EDT:

Watching a warm front lift out of Georgia and South Carolina that will bring showers and possible thunderstorms later this afternoon and into Friday evening. That’s not good for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race.

Looking at the radar as of 10:30am showers are beginning to increase southwest of Charlotte. Some of that rain if it arrives early and holds together could cause problems for Truck and Showdown qualifying…

As for Saturday, I think there is a better chance for racing Saturday evening. Now I am not saying they will, there could still be some unsettled weather with showers and storms in the afternoon on Saturday and Saturday evening but nothing like we are seeing this afternoon. Will be monitoring this through the afternoon

FORECAST DISCUSSION Thursday 4:00 pm EDT:

I tweeted that this has been a very difficult forecast. Not difficult because of location but because of the scenario. Currently have a storm system through the southern Plains that will lift north-northeast dragging a warm front north into and through western & central North Carolina. Friday will start off with sunshine and clouds but clouds will thicken through the day and by the afternoon and evening there will be the risk of showers and possible thunderstorms. Highs during the day Friday will be in the low 80s.

Most of the morning and midday activities on the track should be ok and as we go into the afternoon and evening. Showers and even a thunderstorm does pose a risk late in the day and evening. Timing is still very hard to pin down. At this point I expect qualifying for both the truck and Sprint Cup to go on but skies will have to be monitored for shower and storm development.

Saturday will be mainly cloudy, some sunshine but an upper level disturbance lingers in close proximity during the day and into the evening. This will leave the area unsettled so showers and storms are still possible especially late in the day and into the evening. I am not saying that we will see the race wash out. There really is no way of telling. With a forecast like this all I can do is say that showers are possible but as some of my followers like to point out so too is racing possible. I hope that’s the case.
