2011 Texas Motor Speedway NASCAR Race Day Weather Forecast: Just a Tiny Threat of Rain
FORECAST UPDATE SUNDAY 3 AM ET:
I am still keeping the mention of an isolated rain shower in the race day weather forecast for Texas Motor Speedway. Moisture from the Gulf of Mexico will stream into north Texas allowing for skies to be mostly cloudy for most of the day Sunday. Some places could see a light sprinkle or even pockets of drizzle Sunday morning. This activity looks very limited.
As the day wears on, some sunshine could peek out from behind the clouds. This warming could spark an isolated shower or storm during the afternoon but the best chance for any showers or storms looks like it would occur towards Sunday evening and Sunday night.
I don’t think there is much to worry about here as far as the rain threat goes. I am not going to definitively say it will not rain because there is enough there for a stray or isolated shower to form or occur but I think the likelihood is very small for Sunday. I don’t see reason why NASCAR doesn’t get a full race in on Sunday.
3 p.m EDT
Sprint Cup Race – Mostly cloudy, some sun, slight chance of a shower or storm – temp: 70
