NASCAR Daytona International Speedway Weather Forecast: Rain Could Be A Problem Today

Rain is a real threat for Daytona 500 qualifying at Daytona International Speedway today.

A cold front will slowly work through Florida during the morning hours and isn't expected to exit until later afternoon or early evening. The air is very moist, which can cause widely scattered showers and even the possibility of an isolated storm or two. Winds will also be stronger and gusty.

Winds will be out of the southwest then west-southwest in the afternoon. They will be sustained from 10 to 20 mph and gusting to near 30 mph.

I'm not saying NASCAR won't get the chance to qualify but I think there is a good possibility that rain threatens and even hits the track some point during the day. Let's just hope it is after qualifying rather than before or during.
