After a warm and wet Friday at the Roar Before the Rolex 24, cooler temperatures and drier air will move in behind the cold front for Saturday and Sunday. Some lingering moisture in the low levels of the atmosphere will result in mostly cloudy to overcast conditions in the morning to mid-day on Saturday before skies begin to clear in the afternoon. Vertically-stacked winds from the west to northwest will cause some breezy conditions with winds gusts possibly exceeding 20 mph; as with cloud cover, winds will gradually decrease as the day progresses. Conditions on Sunday are expected to be clear with light winds from the east to northeast.
