NASCAR Richmond International Raceway Weather Forecast 2012: Isolated Showers But We Race Tonight

All day, there has been concern that rain might affect tonight's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Richmond International Raceway because of showers and storms earlier this afternoon. The good news is the forecast is looking mostly dry this evening.

Showers moving through western and northern Virginia have weakened and all but dissipated with the rest of the activity staying to the north. This looks like a mostly dry forecast for the Capital City 400, and there is only a slight chance of a stray shower during the race. Given how fast these showers have been moving all day, any isolated shower would be quick.

It looks very good that we will get all of the race in this evening. I am going to just mention the chance of a few isolated to scattered showers this evening.
