Daytona 500 Sunday Weather

From the NASCAR WX Man: The main weather focus for this weekend at Daytona International Speedway is for Sunday’s 55th running of the Great American Race. Cold front moves in across northern Florida Saturday night and into Sunday, bringing a chance of rain and even a few thunderstorms. The front stalls over Daytona Beach on Sunday, and this will be the focusing mechanism for shower and storm develop during the afternoon and evening. Since Wednesday the threat of rain has continually increased over northern and central Florida. While I stop short of calling a second straight rain out for the Daytona 500, there could definitely be some rain delays during the day, and possibly even rain shortened. The new Air Titan drier at Daytona International Speedway may be put to the test. My odds of us seeing the complete Daytona 500 on Sunday is between 50% and 60%. I don’t like the trend I am seeing in the forecast, but it doesn’t look like a washout. I think we will see scattered showers and thunderstorms form through the morning and into the afternoon. When I say scattered showers, imagine dropping a handful of marbles onto the floor and they scattered all over the place. You don’t know where they will go and stop but they are there all over the floor. That’s the challenge of forecasting this kind of rain.

Keep JPM in the pits! :lol:

Have you seen the NEW TITAN TRACK DRYER.....pretty slick. They say they can dry Daytona in an hour and a half....maybe..? We will see if it holds up to the hype this weekend. :roll:

Yeah, I've seen it... doesn't mean JPM can't hit it.

You're right. NASCAR would have to red-flag the race and bring the cars down pit road while that thing was rolling around.
