2011 Texas Motor Speedway NASCAR Weather Forecast: Wouldn’t Worry About Sunday’s Threat
Fort Worth, TX
|Sunny skies||Clouds and limited sunshine.||Sun and Clouds, slight chance for a storm|
FORECAST UPDATE Friday 3 AM EDT:
My focus for this forecast is on Sunday. A storm system will develop in the plains and move north, allowing for moisture to stream into North Texas from the Gulf of Mexico. Moisture alone won’t cause rain, you need something to cause “lift” in the atmosphere. Although there will be moisture available for rain to form there isn’t that trigger to cause lift and make showers.
I am not ruling rain out completely, but the likelihood that rain will form is very low for Sunday’s Sprint Cup Race. A lone shower could form and cause delays but I am not confident that will happen. I am just mentioning it cause it is a possibility. Other than that the forecast for Nationwide and Trucks looks very good, sunny and dry.
