Current Weather



Looks like Mother Nature was informed that NASCAR had a big race this weekend and decided that we can’t have a weekend with out the threat of rain. There will be enough instability around Thursday afternoon that an isolated or even a few scattered showers or storms could form. There is practice and qualifying from 2pm to 7pm for both Nationwide and Sprint Cup series.  If a shower or storm forms near or over the track then this would cause delays or cancellations, but I think most of the time is dry.

Friday there are no scheduled on track activities but there will still be a better chance of scattered showers and storms as the atmosphere remains unstable.

Sadly the biggest change has been the addition of showers and possible thunderstorms for a good part of the day Saturday. I know a lot of people will ask, “Is it in the morning or afternoon?” “When will there be a break” “Will they Nationwide Race be rained out” “Will they run a double on Sunday if it is canceled?” I don’t have specifics nailed down at this point. I think most of the shower will be scattered as an upper level storm system moves over the Carolinas. These can produce numerous scattered to broken showers across the region.

Right now, that same upper level system drops farther south, there may be some clouds maybe a lingering shower in the morning but I think most of the day especially towards evening it remains dry.
