It will be a great weekend to head to beautiful Virginia International Raceway to take in some awesome race cars. Trans Am will have a shared weekend with SVRA's Heacock Classic Gold Cup Historic Races, and the schedule is jam packed with action. A large area of high pressure will be stationary over the Great Lakes and Mid Atlantic region, and it will keep dry and sunny weather across Virginia later this week. Temperatures will be pretty warm too under the high pressure ridge, between 4 and 8 degrees above normal for late September in southern Virginia. There's good agreement among the models on this pattern, so I don't expect that there will be many changes needed to this forecast through the week.
