Qualifications at the Track

Posted By · July 25, 2009 at 10:36 am

Today highs are expected to reach the mid 80s with a mix of clouds and sun, and we’ll see scattered thunderstorms too.  A complete washout is not expected, but be prepared for rain as you head out.  A cold front will push through the state triggering the scattered storms this afternoon.  Some could be strong to severe.  A slight risk  for severe weather has been issued.  We’ll mainly be watching for damaging winds and large hail.

Tonight, any lingering showers or storms will come to an end, and skies will be partly cloudy.

Sunday, expect a mix of sun and clouds with highs nearing 80 degrees.  There’s a slight chance for a spotty shower or storm.

Turning Up the Heat

Posted By · July 24, 2009 at 12:09 pm

Warmer temperatures and humidity are returning to Central Indiana.  Highs today will reach the low to mid 80s with partly cloudy skies.  There’s a slight chance for an isolated shower or t-storm late this afternoon, but for the most part dry conditions look to stick with us.

We’re watching a developing storm system for tomorrow.  Highs will reach the mid 80s with scattered storms as a cold front comes through the state.  Some storms could be strong to severe with heavy rain, strong winds, and large hail.

Sunday, still looks like a slight chance of showers with temps in the low 80s.

Drying Out Thursday

Posted By · July 23, 2009 at 10:49 am

Highs today will reach the upper 70s to around 80 degrees with a mix of sun and clouds.  An isolated shower or thunderstorms is not out of the question this afternoon, but for the most part, the area will remain dry.

Tonight, another chance to open up your windows.  Lows will dip to the lower 60s.

Friday, we turn the heat up… just a bit!  Highs will reach the low 8os with a slight chance for a pop up shower or t-storm.

The chance of rain increases to 50% Saturday, as highs stick in the low 80s.

For the Brickyard 400 Saturday, we’re still watching for the possibility of a 30% chance of scattered showers or t-storms.  Highs will be comfortable, around 80 degrees.

Stewart confident about Brickyard 400 tires

Posted By · July 23, 2009 at 3:13 am

It’s about time to move into the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard.

 Last year’s race was a long day thanks to all the tire issues.  Tony Stewart has been a critic of Goodyear tires for many years, so when he says the tires will be fine for this year’s race, I believe it! 

 Speaking of Smoke,  it’s incredible what he’s done in the first year of being a team owner. He is first in points and Ryan Newman is 7th, so congratulations to Stewart for taking a chance, working his tail off and it’s paying off!
