Please have a reliable source of weather information on hand during the day, and stay weather aware. Expect heavy rainfall with possible flash flooding, dangerous lightning, strong winds at 40-60 MPH, and a possibility of a brief spin-up tornado. We'll have our radar up and running for you to see at our website (www.racecastweather.com) that features live warning data. I'll also have updates on my Twitter feed (@RaceWx4You) if dangerous weather is heading in that direction.
On Friday and Saturday, the cold front slows down just to the south of the area and an upper-level disturbance behind the front should keep showers and thunderstorms in the forecast throughout the race weekend. Fortunately, these storms will be elevated, so no severe weather is expected with these storms.
