The rain should end at the Talladega SuperSpeedway in the 12:00-1:00 time frame… and the afternoon should be rain-free, but very cool with temperatures not getting out of the 50s. The Aaron’s 312 should be run with no weather issues once the track dries.

TOMORROW: A cold core upper low will pass right over Alabama tomorrow afternoon, and showers are likely. Below is the new 12Z high res NAM model output, valid at 3pm CT Sunday…


Showers are likely near the track tomorrow, but it won’t rain all afternoon. Rain delays are likely for the Aaron’s 499, but there is a chance they will get the race in.

And, we should note showers tomorrow could produce hail due to the extremely cold air aloft. The high will be in the low to mid 60s.

Over one inch of rain has fallen at Talladega over the past 24 hours… the image below if from the South Park family camping are as of 10am… photo from @jamesmcneal28
