The great news is that the shower chances will hold off until near the end of the afternoon hours or the start of the evening, as skies will be partly to mostly cloudy throughout the day. That means that the race day will more than likely stay dry. Temperatures started off in the mid-50s this morning and the afternoon high is expected to reach the lower 70s. Winds will be out of the north at 2-8 MPH. I'm putting in a 30% chance of rain just in case the timing of shower development happens to get started earlier than the models are showing. Radar is up and running. If a shower approaches, some thunder is possible, so stay weather aware.
