NASCAR Martinsville Speedway Weather Forecast: Rain Ends Saturday, But No Snow

The weather forecast for Martinsville Speedway slowly improves through the day Saturday. Rain is still likely through the morning and threatens the Sprint Cup practice scheduled for 8:30 a.m. As Jeff pointed out in his revised Martinsville schedule:

*** Special note: *** With rain in the forecast for Saturday morning, there's a chance some of the Sprint Cup Series schedule could be affected by weather again. If that's the case NASCAR will give a priority to practice over qualifying.

Rain and drizzle should begin to decrease between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m., and by the afternoon, skies will become partly sunny as the storm system moves to the northeast and high pressure builds in across the southeast.

Sunday looks very nice and sunny but temperatures remain cool for the remainder of the weekend. 

As for snow, the threat is through northwestern Virginia and eastern West Virginia up through eastern and central Pennsylvania and into southeastern New York. Some of the mountains there could see nearly a foot of wet snow, with snow into New Hampshire and Maine.
