2013 Indy 500 race day weather forecast update

With rain showers to the west in Illinois, we could see 500 miles of rain-free racing, but the threat of a scattered rain shower this afternoon still remains.

The forecast shows showers and storms to the west of Indiana in Illinois, associated with a warm front. This warm front will slowly move to the northeast across Indiana later today. Because this front is moving slowly, the Indianapolis 500 should have a large enough window to get the full 200 laps completed.

While I think the forecast today is mostly dry, there is still a chance of scattered showers later today toward the final laps of the Indy 500. I am sticking with my probability of 60 percent likelihood of a rain-free race today. You can see my previous Indianapolis 500 weather forecast here.
