    Memorial Day Weekend marks the unofficial start of the summer season. Will summer storms (thunderstorms) affect the Indianapolis 500 this coming Sunday?

    Some of the Indy 500 races of the past have been marred by showers and thunderstorms.

    As you know, these cars are fast, but they are pretty worthless in the rain. Those slick tires mean instant hydroplaning as soon as the track gets wet.

    For this year's Indy Race, the weather won't go that route.


    As a matter of fact, we are expecting plenty of sunshine in Indianapolis on Sunday with afternoon temperatures approaching 80 degrees.

    The wind is not expected to be much of a factor.

    Only if a storm system just now reaching the Pacific Coast moves faster than expected, would rain roll across Indiana during Sunday.
