Latest radar analysis and computer model data suggest a drier scenario for the 97th running of the Indianapolis 500. A wave of light showers will continue to dive southward overnight and weaken along the way. Though a lingering sprinkle is possible when the gates open at 5:30am…it’s not likely. Below is the latest FutureTrak 13 from 5:30am to 5:30pm.
Morning clouds have more bark than bite, and a dry east-southeasterly wind may actually thin-out some of the overcast when the green flag drops. Still expecting some spotty showers to be on the radar during the race… but most likely impacting west-central Indiana. Still close enough to warrant a 30-40% by 2-3pm. Rain and storms are more likely on Memorial Day, but conditions quickly dry out Tuesday as much warmer air returns for next week.
