We'll start off with sunny skies on Friday morning with temperatures in the lower 50s at 8:00 am and winds out of the south-southwest at 2-5 MPH. Clouds will begin to move in during the day but we'll still end up with mostly clear skies by the end of the on-track activities. Afternoon highs will top out in the mid-70s with winds out of the south to southeast at 5-10 MPH. No rain is expected at this time.
We'll have a weaker system slowly moving by well off to the north of Texas on Saturday, but it will be close enough to fire off some scattered showers and maybe a few thunderstorms. The good news is that today's model runs have trended much drier throughout the day, but still show some activity in the area. We'll start off with cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid-50s at 8:00 am and will warm up to right around 70 degrees for the high. Winds will be south of the southeast at 6-12 MPH and the chance of rain will be around 40%. If any showers form and move over the track, they will be quick-hitters and shouldn't last that long at all.
Sunday will feature more clouds than sun to start, but the cloud cover will diminish somewhat, becoming partly cloudy by the end of the racing day. That system will still be close enough to the area that a stray shower or thunderstorm may fire up during the heating of the day, but at this point, the chances of that happening are slim. Temperatures will start off in the lower 60s at 8:00 am and top out in the upper 70s. Winds will be out of the south at 6-12 MPH throughout the day, and the chance of rain is only 20%.
