High pressure builds over the area on Thursday night, and will shift east through Friday and Saturday. This will provide nice weather with plenty of sunshine and a warming trend to temperatures as a southerly flow develops.
The high pressure ridge weakens on Sunday, and a cold front will approach from the west. The timing of this front still looks like it will be moving through on Sunday night. However, I can't rule out some isolated showers and thunderstorms popping up in the afternoon, ahead of the front. So I will keep the 20% chance of rain in the forecast, but I still think that most of the rain will arrive after the race ends, and impacts on the race are low.
