NASCAR Homestead-Miami race day weather forecast: Mostly dry, small chance of showers

Mostly dry weather is expected for the final Sprint Cup Series race of the 2012 NASCAR season at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

All weekend, there has been a stalled front just off the eastern coast of Florida. This has been the focusing mechanism for isolated showers near and around Homestead all weekend. Will we see rain? More than likely not, but with that front in close proximity, to the track we can't rule them out.

Although there is a small chance of an isolated afternoon shower, I don't expect a race-ending or postponing shower. I am not going to rule out a shower that causes a delay or two, but overall I think the likelihood of rain affect the track this afternoon is 10 percent or less.

Please follow me on Twitter @NASCAR_WXMAN and like me on Facebook for the latest weather updates through the week.

On a personal note, I want to thank Jeff Gluck for giving me this forum every week during the last two NASCAR seasons to provide weather information. As a fan who either spends hard earned money to go to a race or those who organizes their entire Sunday afternoon, Saturday night or the occasional Monday afternoon to sit at home and watch a race, I understand how important having accurate weather information is.

I also want to thank all of you who take the time each week to read these forecasts and share them on social media. I wouldn't be doing these weather forecasts each week if it weren't for all of you.

So again, many thanks and here is to looking forward to the 2013 season.
