Friday looks a little better than Thursday, but we'll continue to have a small chance of showers throughout the day. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy with temperatures at 9:30 am in the upper 40s, topping out in the mid-50s for the afternoon high, and dropping into the lower 50s by the end of the qualifying session at 5:45pm. Rain chances will be around 20% for much of the on-track activity, but increasing to near 40% before the end of qualifying. Winds will be out of the south at 5-10 MPH.
Mostly cloudy skies and a small chance of showers will continue throughout the day on Saturday as the race is scheduled to start just after 11:00 am. Rain chances will be around 30% from the pre-grid at 9:30 am through mid-afternoon, then drops off a little to around 20% for the rest of the afternoon through midnight. Temperatures at the green flag will be in the lower 50s, topping out in the upper 50s for the high, then dropping into the mid-40s by midnight. Winds will be out of the south to southeast at 5-10 MPH.
While we should be mainly dry with partly cloudy skies during the early morning hours on Sunday through the checkered flag at noon and the awards ceremony to follow up during the afternoon, there still remains a very small chance of showers (less than 20%). Temperatures will remain dropping from the mid-40s at midnight to the lower 40s by 3:00 am, but they will begin to climb steadily into the lower 50s by 12:00 pm. Winds will be out of the northwest at 2-8 MPH.
