A system will be moving out of the Gulf of Alaska and will make its way into the area starting on Friday and will hang around throughout the weekend. Rain chances will start on Friday afternoon just before qualifying and will slightly increase throughout the overnight and pre-dawn hours on Saturday. Those chances will diminish a little throughout much of the day on Saturday before slightly rising for the late afternoon through the pre-dawn hours on Sunday morning. Unfortunately, a very small chance of a shower or two will remain throughout the end of the event on Sunday and afterwords for the awards ceremony.
For the graphic, the temperatures shown are the daytime highs on each day, with 9AM temperatures on Friday and Saturday, and the early morning low temperature on Sunday. When the event gets closer, I'll have a better breakdown with temperatures by the hour on raceday.
I'll have radar up and running starting on Friday morning on the website. Be sure to follow our main Twitter feed @RacecastWx as we will be using it as our one-stop place for forecasts and updates on Twitter. We'll continue to have our personal accounts as well, but we'll only use those to retweet our forecast and for personal use. As always, our forecasts will still be featured on our Facebook page along with our Instagram account. Thank you and have a great Monday.
