Some light showers passed over the Speedway last night, but have moved well east and south this morning. Clouds will remain in place through the morning, but some sun may begin to peek through early in the afternoon. This will generate some instability that will help showers and thunderstorms develop later in the afternoon. I expect that this development will begin after 3 pm, and the coverage of showers will be mainly scattered at first. The coverage of showers will be increasing through the late afternoon, and showers are likely by the evening. It's impossible to tell at this time whether a shower will hit the track during the race, but it will become more likely to happen late in the race. We'll have to watch the radar and provide updates as the weather unfolds. You can check the radar in the Indy Radar link at the top of the website.
