BRISTOL, Tenn. — There is good news and bad news regarding the weather today at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Charlotte Motor Speedway moves NASCAR Cup Series playoff race

  Charlotte Motor Speedway moves NASCAR Cup Series playoff race The only Saturday night NASCAR Cup Series race of the playoffs is no more. Charlotte Motor Speedway announced Thursday it has moved back its Bank of America 500 to a Sunday afternoon start time in 2017 in hopes for a better race in the daytime with a slicker track surface.The first race in the Round of 12 will now be held on Sunday, Oct. 8 at 2 p.m. ET, instead of the initial announced date of Saturday, Oct. 7.

The Met Office has issued a further warning for ice, snow and heavy rain overnight, into Thursday and Friday . . Bristol weather forecast : This is when snow is While this might be bad news if you are on your way to Mar 01, 2018 В· Parts of the UK are braced for up to 50cm of snow, as Storm Emma

NEWS . Weather Bristol - Weather forecast : - for today, - for tomorrow, - for a week, - for a month. Going outside or planning your trip in advance the best way to avoid an awkward situation, like staying under the rain without umbrella or to be dressed up lightly in cold weather , is to check weather

As of 9:30 a.m. ET, the sun was shining through a partly cloudy sky, with temperatures approaching a pleasant 70 degrees. That’s the good news.

The bad news is that the weather forecast for the day is gloomy, with isolated thunderstorms expected to start popping up around the .526-mile short track as early as 11 a.m., when weather.com says there will be a 30-percent chance of rain.

From there, it only gets more dicey.

The chance of rain increases to 55 percent by 1 p.m., 70 percent by 2 p.m. and 80 percent by 4 p.m., which is only 30 minutes prior to the scheduled beginning of Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series qualifying (live on FS1).

The chance of rain, according to weather.com, remains at between 50 percent and 65 percent for the remainder of the day – which will likely make it difficult to dry the track even if the rain halts from time to time.
