NASCAR schedule at Indy threatened by remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon

NASCAR schedule at Indy threatened by remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon

Accumulated rain from what is now Tropical Depression Gordon, makes for a big splash across a frontage road along Interstate 55 in Jackson, Miss., Wednesday.

NASCAR's entire Saturday schedule at Indianapolis Motor Speedway will likely be washed out by the remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon, and Sunday's Cup race is in jeopardy.

So far this Saturday our rain intensity has been light. While the heaviest rain will end before Monday evening, it will likely take several hours for the larger basins to crest.

The storm could dump between 20-40 mm of rain on the region and surrounding areas Sunday and Monday. As a result a Flood Watch has already been issued for Oneida, Madison, Chenango, and Otsego counties from 8:00 PM Sunday through 2:00 AM Tuesday. Expect the possibility of flooding along regional streams and creeks, as well as in normal low lying areas.

This morning will be dry, but rain will redevelop this afternoon.

The back part of next week is a hard forecast as either the front could still be around, high pressure could take control and dry us out, or Hurricane Florence could threaten the eastern seaboard and influence a cooler and drier regime over us.

With the clouds and wet weather, high temperatures will back off into the weekend as highs on Sunday will struggle to reach 70°.
