The majority of the time through Sunday evening at the Charlotte Motor Speedway will be dry, but spotty showers and thunderstorms may come too close for comfort for NASCAR racers and fans.
While most of Sunday will be dry for activities leading up to the race, it is not out of the question that a stray shower or thunderstorm drifts into the Charlotte area during the running of the Coca-Cola 600.
The Coca-Cola 600 is scheduled to start at approximately 6 p.m. EDT Sunday.
"A few spotty showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop late in the day across the western Carolinas, but the Charlotte area will likely be on the edge of this activity," stated AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Bill Deger.
"The areas most likely to see any rain or thunder will be south and west of [Charlotte]," Deger continued.
Charlotte Motor Speedway is located northeast of uptown Charlotte.
A seasonably warm Sunday will precede the race with temperatures rising into the lower 80s, but high humidity will remain absent.
Temperatures at the start of the race will be near 80F, but will fall through the 70s and into the 60s during Sunday evening.
Humidity will increase on Memorial Day, putting more of the Charlotte area at risk for a spotty shower or thunderstorm on Monday afternoon that could briefly interfere with holiday picnics and celebrations.
A steamy and unsettled Tuesday will follow the holiday.
