We'll have a disturbance sweeping through Central Alabama that will bring a chance of a few scattered shower and thunderstorms during the first half of the day on Friday. After that, skies will begin to slowly clear and we'll remain dry throughout the rest of the daytime hours and through the night. the daytime high at the track should top out in the mid-70s. The chance of rain is around 40% and rainfall amounts should stay below 0.10 inches if it rains at all. Winds will start off out of the south at 5-10 MPH and will shift slightly out of the southwest by the late morning hours.
We'll have a good bit of sunshine with just a few clouds passing overhead throughout the day on Saturday, but be sure to grab you a frozen lemonade from the concession stands as the daytime highs will be getting very close to 80 degrees by the late afternoon. Winds will be out of the north to northeast at 2-7 MPH and the chance of rain is 0% at this point.
Another disturbance begins to build well out to our west which could bring us a very small chance of a passing shower or thunderstorm during the late afternoon and into the evening hours on Sunday. Before that, skies will start off partly cloudy, but those clouds will build throughout the day. The afternoon high should top out around 80 degrees once again. At this point, the chance of rain is only at 30%, and if any rain falls it should total less than 0.10 inches. Winds will be out of the southeast at 5-10 MPH.
Doug and I will be attending HIGPA this week, just look for the two guys wearing something related to Racecast Weather... we'll be the only ones wearing it. Feel free to say hi to us (especially any drivers, teams, and series personnel). I'll have the next update out on Tuesday morning.
