We'll have mostly cloudy skies throughout the day at the track with a small chance of a passing shower during the main heating of the day. The good news is that the higher resolution models are showing just a minimal amount of scattered showers around the area through the late morning and into the afternoon. Latest NWS projections are only showing 0.05 inches of rainfall for the area, which if any rain does fall, that will be just enough to bring out the rain tires for a brief stint. Temperatures will start off in the upper 50s at 8:00 am and top out in the lower 70s for the daytime high. Winds will be out of the south-southeast at 5-15 MPH and the chance of rain is only 30%.
For those hanging around for the concert during the evening, those rain chances drop even further to around 20%, but don't let that keep you from the fun. Temperatures will be close to 70 degrees at 6:00 pm and dropping into the mid-60s at 9:00 pm.
Skies will start off mostly cloudy on Sunday morning, but some of that cloud cover will erode away leaving us with partly cloudy to mostly clear skies by late afternoon. Morning temperatures will start off around 60 degrees at 8:00 am and will warm into the upper 70s close to 80 degrees by the afternoon. Winds will be out of the south-southwest at 6-12 MPH. All shower chances will be done well before sunrise at the track.
Radar is up and running on the website... and just a quick note about using the radar with a mobile device... view the website in desktop mode and you will be able to see all of the radar and zoom where you would like to.
And taking a quick peek into what I call "Voodoo Land" for what to expect in two weeks at Barber Motorsports Park for the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama... According to long range models, Saturday and Sunday look to be dry at this point, but we may be dealing with some storms on Friday. I'm crossing my fingers that these will not be severe as it is the middle of Spring Severe Weather Season in Central Alabama. But that is still too far out to be specific, why I call it "Voodoo Land."
