All signs continue to point toward nice weather this weekend for the Trans Am season opener at Sebring. The main weather issue will be winds. North winds today will be sustained at 15 to 25 mph, with gusts of 30 to 35 mph. This will produce a pretty strong cross wind on the Ullman straight. Here's a track map for reference:
Saturday and Sunday will continue to have breezy conditions, but not quite as strong as today, with sustained winds between 10 and 20 mph, gusting up to 25 mph.
