NASCAR At Watkins Glen 2012: Mostly Dry Weather With Isolated Showers And Storms

Weather forecast this afternoon and Sunday will be drier for NASCAR at Watkins Glen International. The only catch, we could still see a few isolated or scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Storm system over southeastern Canada will keep a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms across western New York this weekend. The air is mostly dry, so any shower activity will be limited. It doesn't look like we will see another washout like last year, or a rain shortened even like last weekend in Pocono.

This afternoon, we will see a mix of sunshine and clouds with just a slight chance of an isolated showers. Most of the time will be dry and high temperature near 80.

Sunday will feature more of the same with a mix of sunshine and clouds and isolated showers and storms as the storm system moves to the north-northeast.
