NASCAR Martinsville Speedway Weather Forecast: Could Snow Be In The Forecast?

There's been a lot of talk on social media about a weekend storm that moves up the East Coast, bringing accumulating snow from Washington D.C. and Philadelphia into parts of New England. It's hard to say how much snow will fall in these places, but if you are traveling to the race from any of these areas, you may want to get a head start to Martinsville. 

The only weather concern for Martinsville Speedway this weekend is on Friday and possibly Saturday morning in the form of rain. The storm system will move out of Georgia on Friday night along a stalled boundary just off the coast of Virginia. This system will spread rain Friday night into Saturday morning with the possibility of some snow mixing with the rain in the mountains to the west and north. 

Storm will begin to exit Saturday midday, allowing for high pressure to build in and bringing sunshine for the rest of the weekend. It will just be chilly with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s and lows in the 30s.
