As NASCAR's best take to "The Tricky Triangle" in the Pocono Mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania today, there will be a slight threat for a spotty shower or thunderstorm.
As some would say, it wouldn't be a NASCAR weekend at the Pocono Raceway without the threat for some rain.
However, the good news for those planning on watching or attending the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on Sunday afternoon is this: the threat for wet weather is rather low.
Those planning on heading to the race should be sure to grab the sunscreen since skies will be partly sunny today. Temperatures will be warming into the lower 80s this afternoon.
By the middle of the afternoon it is likely that isolated showers and thunderstorms will fire across portions of northeastern Pennsylvania and the Hudson Valley.
If a storm would happen to move over the Pocono Raceway this afternoon, AccuWeather.com meteorologists don't anticipate it to cause any problems for the drivers or the fans. Any shower or thunderstorm is expected to be brief.
