NASCAR At Daytona International Speedway 2012: Weather Forecast And Schedule

Typical July weather is expected for this weekend's NASCAR activities at Daytona International Speedway – hot and humid with pop-up showers and thunderstorms.

I know many are a little nervous seeing rain in a NASCAR Daytona weather forecast after what happened back in February when NASCAR kicked off the season on a Monday in prime time. Although these pop-up and scattered showers and storms each afternoon and evening can cause delays, I don't expect the same kind of deluge that we saw back in February.

When I say "typical" Florida weather, what I mean is mostly-to-partly-sunny days, hot with highs near 90 and humid. If you've ever been to Florida in the summer, then you know a spot shower or storm is likely at anytime during the afternoon. These storms leave as quickly as they form and are more miss than hit.

The rest of the week and weekend is mostly dry – yes a stray shower, storm or two can't be ruled out – but I don't see anything in the forecast that should force a rescheduled race like this past winter.
