No big changes were needed to the forecast at Daytona this weekend as Trans Am will have great weather for its season finale on Saturday. Friday's qualifying sessions will have full sunshine and highs in the upper 70s. Clouds will start to increase through Saturday as winds shift to the northeast, bringing more moisture off the ocean, but no rain is expected during the day. There is a slight chance of some light showers beginning Saturday night and into Sunday for the historic racing event. Winds will be picking up too on Sunday as a low pressure system takes shape off the coast.
