Daytona 500 Rain Update

Not looking good for the race today down in Daytona. There will on and off rain showers all afternoon with some improvement this evening. Here’s a updated look at the model data this morning. The RAP or Rapid Refresh Model is the only model that shows some significant breaking up of the rain by 5pm. All the current guidance has rain on and off from Noon-5pm. I can’t see this race getting in today unless the race well into the night with lots of red flags. Problem with running the race tomorrow is it’s looking pretty wet especially early Monday as well. Looks like last seasons rain has followed Nascar into 2012.
