2013 NASCAR at Dover International Speedway race day weather forecast

Small threat of showers and storms in the afternoon at Dover International Speedway, but is it enough to cause problems for the Sprint Cup race today? Check out the complete NASCAR weather forecast.

I expect the NASCAR Sprint Cup race today at Dover International Speedway will be mostly dry and continued very warm and humid, like it's been all weekend. Highs this afternoon once again up into the mid to upper 80s.

The only concern with the forecast is an approaching cold front. This has been mentioned the last couple of days but it appears timing is still on the side of NASCAR. The showers and possible storms are not expected to arrive in Dover until late afternoon, more like early afternoon. The main concern for storms and strong to severe storms is when the race is over and fans are heading home or to camping. Heavy rain, lightning and strong to potentially damaging winds are possible.

While there is a small threat of showers and storms in the afternoon, it isn't until late afternoon and early evening, I expect NASCAR to race and finish today.
