    Warm, dry weather will lead the way across northeastern Pennsylvania this weekend for the Pocono 400.

    Fans attending this weekend's NASCAR race in Long Pond, Pennsylvania, can expect rain-free weather with summerlike temperatures.

    Those headed to the Tricky Triangle early on Sunday may find it to be on the chilly side with temperatures dipping into the 40s early in the morning.

    This chill is not expected to last long as temperatures race towards the 80-degree mark during the afternoon with sunshine and patchy clouds.

    The green flag for the Pocono 400 is scheduled to drop at 1 p.m. EDT on Sunday.

    With plenty of sun in the forecast, it is important to wear sunblock and reapply when necessary to prevent sunburn.

    It is also important to drink enough water to stay hydrated when spending several hours in the hot sun watching the race.

    Those staying in town on Sunday night before heading home on Monday will experience a change in the warm and sunny weather.

    Clouds are expected to move in for Monday with showers and thunderstorms and highs in the lower 70s.

    These storms could result in slow traffic along I-80, I-81, I-380, I-84 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
