Not a bad looking weekend out in Austin, Texas for this weekend's Trans Am Championship presented by Pirelli action at Circuit of the Americas. Warm temperatures can be expected throughout the event weekend, along with mild mornings, and dry conditions. A high pressure center will develop over northern Mexico, and this will allow for a southwesterly flow bringing in warmer air from south of the border. No rain is expected throughout the event weekend, but be sure to bring your hats, shades, and plenty of sunscreen. Highs will be in the 80s with early morning lows in the 60s. This would be nearly perfect weather for the summer, but pretty warm as highs will be nearly 10 degrees warmer than average for early November. Be sure to stay hydrated.
