Yesterday was a beautiful day for racing at Road America, and I think today will be much the same, except for a little more cloudiness in the afternoon. A low pressure system is located over Minnesota this morning, with rain on the east side of the system over western Wisconsin. The movement of the rain is toward the southeast. Based on this trajectory and on the latest models, it looks like most of this rain will miss Road America today, and stay mainly to the west. It is possible that locations as close as Fond du Lac could see rain. I'm mentioning a slight chance of a light shower starting around 4 pm just in case the rain is able to spread a little bit farther east than expected right now. If there are showers, the TC/TCA/TCB race would be the most likely event to see rain. But the odds are good that the track will stay dry today. Temperatures will be comfortable once again today, with highs in the mid 70s.
