NASCAR At Sonoma 2012: Weather Forecast And Weekend Schedule

When it comes to NASCAR at Sonoma, rain is one thing you don't think about – and we won't have to think much about it this weekend. The only exception is a small chance of a sprinkle or light shower today.

I've been tracking a coastal storm system that will keep some morning fog, drizzle and dreary cloud cover overhead for a good portion of the day. Although slim, there's a chance of a few rain drops in the form of sprinkles. It may look dark and threatening, but I expect qualifying to go off later in the afternoon.

The rest of the weekend is very nice with lots of sunshine. Temperatures will also be comfortably cool as they reach the low 70s during the afternoon. After some of the rain and storms NASCAR has had to deal with the last few weeks, it's nice to finally have a break.
