Friday and Saturday should be really nice days to take in some racing action. Friday will be mostly sunny with highs in the mid 80s, while Saturday will have a little more cloud cover but with highs still able to reach the mid 80s in the afternoon. Both days will be breezy, with a southeast to south wind at 10 to 20 mph, gusting to around 25 mph at times.
A cold front will be approaching the St. Pete area from the north on Saturday night, but it will be losing its punch as it moves southward. Rain showers along the front are expected to be decreasing as it moves south of the Florida Panhandle, so that by the time it reaches St. Pete, there may only be a few isolated light showers left. And if any showers can make it that far, they will probably be in the early morning hours, near sunrise.
Bottom line, the weather looks great for racing!
