Yeah, right, sure he did.
Hope the rain holds off in Daytona for Sunday!
There are no weather concerns for Friday or Saturday. The weather story for Friday are very warm temperatures and strong gusty winds. Highs will reach the mid 80s and winds out of the southwest could gust up to thirty miles per hour.
Cold front sweeps across Florida Friday night and early Saturday morning. Its passing will be quick but not before it puts down rain across the area overnight. Rain and front are gone by Saturday morning but it will be noticeably cooler as highs only reach the mid 60s.
The main focus for this forecast has turned to Sunday afternoon. What once looked like a dry forecast just two days ago has become increasingly wet and unsettled for Sunday afternoon and evening. Moisture will spread in from the Gulf of Mexico as the same cold front that moved through Friday night begins to come back and become a warm front. This boundary will creep across north Florida bringing with it an increase threat of rain Sunday afternoon and evening. Rain that forms along a warm front usually is more wide spread and last longer than showers associated with a quick moving cold front.
Based on the current information, I am still optimistic for Sunday but keep in mind I’m cautiously optimistic. The forecast over the last thirty-six hour has grown increasingly pessimistic and wet for Sunday. I can’t say, “we won’t see rain on Sunday,” but I also can’t say, “The Daytona 500 will be a wash.” There’s just not enough information available to make that call. Again, I remain cautiously optimistic and if you plan on going the the Great American Race on Sunday, I’d prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
