Race Day forecast


The remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon continues to spin over the Ohio River Valley this morning. It will slowly move off to the east today, slowly taking away the rain.

If you are heading to the Brickyard 400, bring the rain gear! It won’t be as wet this afternoon, but areas of drizzle will be likely at times. Hopefully, there will be a window to get the race in today, with a 1 p.m. start.

A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for portions of east central and south central Indiana until 8pm this evening.

The heaviest rain has ended with persistent rain still hanging around this morning. Central Indiana will be on the back side of the system this afternoon. Areas of drizzle will be likely at times this afternoon, but it won’t be an all day rain like yesterday. It will remain cloudy and cool with temperatures near steady in the low 60s.

Colts tailgaters should prepare to get wet, but the roof at Lucas Oil Stadium will keep fans watching the Colts and Bengals dry.

A few more light showers will be possible through the evening. Temperatures will fall into the upper 50s Monday morning.

It will be much drier on Monday with cloudy skies and highs in the low 70s. There is just a low chance of a spotty shower. It will look and feel like fall.

A much needed dry pattern moves in for the work week as an area of high pressure arrives.

The skies will gradually clear out and temperatures will get back to near normal for this time of year by mid week.
