Rain was a problem for NASCAR at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Friday, but it looks like Saturday and Sunday could be a little better. I am not going to keep rain totally out of the forecast, but there will be more dry time than wet in my professional opinion.
Few scattered showers are possible during the morning hours Saturday. This would not be good for the Sprint Cup drivers as they are making up Friday's schedule Saturday morning. The good news is the likelihood of these scattered showers decreases after 7am EST in the morning.
Although there could be a slight chance of an isolated shower or two, the rest of the weekend, the threat of showers like Friday are less and less. The weekend forecast for both Saturday and Sunday feature sunshine and clouds and an isolated shower or two with highs near 80.
