Cool with a high of 78 today, but race weekend may bring showers
By Chuck Lofton, SkyTrak meteorologist - bio | email
It is a crisp and cool morning in Indiana. Kroger Super Weekend at The Brickyard begins today with some of the nation's best sports cars in competition at the Speedway. It will be beautiful and unseasonably cool with a high of only 78. Friday will also be nice before an unsettled set up arrives for Brickyard 400 qualifying and the race itself.
Latest computer guidance suggests a round of showers and storms late Friday night into Saturday morning as hot air expands into the state. Highs Saturday will top out in the upper 80s and heat indices near 100. Additional storms are likely Saturday night into Sunday morning , so we will be watching the radar closely on Brickyard 400 Race Day.
