Rain has postponed NASCAR's Sprint Cup Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway until noon EDT, Monday.

Driver introductions were held but the race was delayed until early Sunday evening before NASCAR announced the postponement about 7:10 p.m. EDT.

Rain came back into the area about a half hour before the postponement.

Drier weather will follow for the start of Monday. As some sunshine returns, temperatures on Monday will rebound to the upper 60s. A stray shower or thunderstorm will also return in the afternoon.

Further warming will occur on Tuesday underneath a partly sunny sky. A high in the lower 70s is anticipated with a gusty breeze creating lower AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.

Wednesday is when a surge of warmth will pour across the Metroplex and send temperatures soaring into the 80s. The warm air will hang on through at least Thursday.
