It looks like there is a drastic change to be made to the forecast as an active pattern has set up over portions of the Lone Star State and into the southeastern US. A surface low has set up shop over the southern portions of Texas that will bring showers and thunderstorms to the area on Saturday and Saturday evening. Here is what I have for Saturday’s forecast:
Fortunately, Sunday looks to be a much better day at the track as the latest model runs have the rain out of the area by the time we get to the afternoon and evening hours. Here is what I have for Sunday’s forecast:
Qualifying (3:00 pm to 4:00 pm CDT): Skies will be clearing out, and we should have a decent bit of sunshine. Temperatures will be around 80 degrees throughout the session with winds out of the south at 10-15 mph with gusts up to 20 mph possible. Dewpoints will be rising throughout the rest of the day, but will remain in the mid-60sfor this session.
Xpel 375 (4:10 pm to 6:15 pm CDT): Skies will continue the clearing process and will be mostly sunny as we start to head toward sunset. It will continue to stay around 80 degrees throughout the race and winds will continue to be out of the south at 10-15 mph with gusts up to 20 mph possible. Dewpoints will be in the upper 60s.
