There hasn't been too much change in the forecast thinking since the last post, but I did make a few small tweaks. Friday is still expected to be warm, with highs in the mid 70s. It looks like the westerly onshore flow is going to develop a little earlier, and this may bring some clouds off the ocean into Laguna Seca Friday night and Saturday morning. This should not have much impact on events. Temperatures will be cooler with the onshore flow, with highs in the mid and upper 60s on Saturday and Sunday. There is still some potential for low clouds and fog on Sunday morning, but it's hard to tell at this point how thick the fog might be and if it will have any impact on racing events. If you're at the track, you'll probably want to bring a jacket as it will be chilly each morning, with low temperatures in the mid to upper 40s.
