NASCAR 2013 NEW HAMPSHIRE FORECAST

2013 NASCAR at New Hampshire Motor Speedway Race Day Weather Forecast

I feel very confident that the NASCAR weather forecast at New Hampshire Motor Speedway for today’s Sprint Cup race is dry, but I’ve added a chance of an isolated storm.

Overall the weather forecast remains unchanged but with warmer temperatures and more moisture in the air a quick moving isolated shower or storm is possible, especially after at or after 2:00 p.m. EDT.

I am sticking with the mostly dry weather forecast for this afternoon, but isolated storms could pop-up on radar, and while the odds are very low (less than 10% in my opinion) one could come close or hit the track. For the latest updates follow me on Twitter @NASCAR_WXMAN and like me on Facebook.

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 race day weather forecast

After dealing with rain and the threat of rain the last several weekends, NASCAR finally gets a break with tonight’s Sprint Cup race at Daytona International Speedway.

High pressure located out over the Atlantic Ocean will continue to keep the eastern shores of Florida mostly dry. While there is a small chance of a pop-up shower or thunderstorm, most, if not all the rain activity, will take place through central and western Florida.

The weather forecast for today across Daytona Beach is partly to mostly sunny, hot and humid, with an afternoon high temperatures of near 90 degrees. There is a small chance of an isolated afternoon shower or storm, but with the sea breeze coming in from the east, the activity will be more inland away from Daytona International Speedway.

For the NASCAR Sprint Cup race, the Coke Zero 400, it will be partly cloudy with race temperatures in the low to mid 80s.

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.

2013 NASCAR at Kentucky Speedway mid race weather report

Rain showers are trying to develop this afternoon around Kentucky Speedway. As of 2:30 p.m. EDT there was no immediate threat from rain but isolated showers and storms were getting closer to the track.

The race has past halfway so it is official and now we continue to monitor the risk of a slow moving shower hitting the track later this afternoon towards the end of the race.

NASCAR 2013 KENTUCKY FORECAST

2013 NASCAR at Kentucky Speedway Race Day Weather: Will Rain Washout a Second Day?

Rain postponed the NASCAR Quaker State 400 Sprint Cup race at Kentucky Speedway until noon Sunday. Unfortunately the same weather system that rained out Saturday’s race, will bring more rain showers and storms for later this afternoon and evening.

Forecast_sat_nascar_ky_medium

Upper level low that sparked wide spread showers and thunderstorms across Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky on Saturday will stall out over Indiana this afternoon. Like Saturday, when you combine this system and the heating of the day you get another round of widely scattered showers and thunderstorms from midday into the late afternoon and early evening.

The above forecast model is the same model I used Saturday morning. This particular forecast model did a good job at locating and placing the clusters of showers and storms that occurred on Saturday. While still showing the threat of rain and storms for Sunday afternoon and evening across the coverage appears to be less than it was yesterday. Keep in mind this is just one models interpretation of the atmosphere at this given time and should only be used as a guide.

WHAT ARE THE ODDS NASCAR GETS TO RACE TODAY? I think the odds are a little better than they were on Saturday, only because NASCAR is starting the race at noon instead of the evening. I put the odds of racing at around 60%.

WHAT ARE THE ODDS WE GET AN OFFICIAL RACE? When I say “official” race I mean a race that gets to halfway or beyond. I think the odds are still around 50 to 60%. Starting at noon means NASCAR has all afternoon and evening to try and get this race complete.

I think the earlier start time helps NASCAR get at least an official race today. If showers and storms form around and miss the track for a couple of hours then we should be able to get this race complete. Rain showers will be a threat and don’t be surprised if we see more rain delays this afteroon.

2013 NASCAR Video Weather Update and Radar for Kentucky Speedway

Forecast for tonight’s Quaker State 400 remains the same. We continue to see showers and storms develop over Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky. These storms and cluster of storms will continue through the afternoon and into the evening.

I tend to stick with my forecast once I put it out there, so I am going to try and be cautiously optimistic but also realistic. While I know NASCAR will do all it can to start and get a race in for the fans tonight, mother nature will fight back. I am stopping short of calling this a washout but the odds of being postponed for Sunday is still around 50-60% with the odds of racing and/or getting half way around 40%.

NASCAR 2013 KENTUCKY FORECAST

2013 NASCAR at Kentucky Speedway Race Day Weather: Possible Showers and Storms

There has been little to no improvement in the weather forecast for tonight’s Sprint Cup race at Kentucky Speedway. Showers and storms remain a threat from early afternoon into mid to late evening. All of this activity is possible as a disturbance moves south and settles across the Ohio Valley Saturday into Sunday.

Forecast_sat_nascar_ky_medium

The combination of daytime heating and the disturbance settling in over the region, showers and storms are likely from the afternoon into the evening. The problem with this forecast is the nearly impossible task of forecasting when and where all of this rain activity will develop. If rain does move over the track, trying to answer when will it arrive and for how long ? These are just questions I can not answer.

The above animated image is a models interpretation of the atmosphere tomorrow afternoon into tomorrow evening. Don’t look at this as “exactly how the radar will look at the given times” but as what could happen tomorrow. As a meteorologist, I look at the above images and see that clusters and even lines of showers and storms are possible, and could affect the NASCAR race tomorrow evening.

DO WE GET THE NASCAR SPRINT CUP RACE IN TONIGHT? If I had a dime for every time someone asked me that this week. I think the odds of racing tonight are between 40 and 50 percent. There is a part of me that thinks these odds are too high but I know NASCAR will do all it can to make sure the fans see racing . Because there is the possibility these storms and showers miss the track I factored that scenario into the probability as well. Honestly, I am leaning more towards 40 percent we race than 50 percent.

WHAT ARE THE ODDS OF GETTING AN OFFICIAL RACE? I’d place the odds the same as above, between 40 and 50 percent. This is such a difficult forecast.

IF I HAD TICKETS TO THE RACE WHAT WOULD I DO? I will never tell a NASCAR fan they should go or not go to a race based on the weather. I think it is important for fans to research the forecast from various sources and make the best decision they feel most comfortable with.

If it were me and I was going to the race tonight, I’d still go because there is still a chance they race and maybe get half a race complete, but I would also have a backup plan for Sunday just in case.

WHAT DOES SUNDAY’S FORECAST LOOK LIKE? Looks a lot like Saturday’s weather forecast. The same system that will bring storms today and tonight will do the same thing on Sunday.

With a forecast like this I try to prepare for the worst and hope for the best. I commit myself to giving NASCAR fans the most honest weather forecast I can. I call it like I see it, the good, the bad and sometimes the ugly. I will admit, it is hard many times to remove the NASCAR fan in me from the meteorologist.
