Surprise surprise surprise, it’s forecasted to rain this Saturday. Who builds an open stadium in Seattle? This race can be counted on being a mudder almost every year.

Just wondering if we have any meteorologists here that can decipher the forecast and predict exactly how much it’s going to rain and what times during the day. I’d like to go but the weather is a bit of a deciding factor.

Need to look a little closer to that forecast...

Only .05 of an inch forecasted for Friday and .07 of an inch for Saturday. Just enough to make the goggle guys the busiest guys that night.

Track should be fine.

It's probably not going to have much effect on the SX this Saturday.

But it does rain here all the time, so don't move to this area, you won't like it. HA!

Isn't foxboro a open stadium? But it never rains in the northeast either.

It's too bad that the race isn't being held today! Beautiful conditions for this time of year. Over 70 degrees and beautiful clear skies.

The 60% chance of showers is probably a bit lower than normal for this time of year, and showers are not too terrible. It's supposed to ease up going into the evening also.

Open stadium in a place it rains 99% of the time. I can't think of a better idea!!!

Rain doesn’t look too bad according to NOAA.

Seattle gets a LOT less average annual rainfall than Houston, but it is spread out over more days......

I’m a meteorologist.

Right now both long to medium range computer models show rain Friday night and throughout Saturday. It’s still too far out to try and forecast rainfall totals, and the system could slow down, or speed up since were still days out. But the fact that computer models are agreeing on timing and rain, I’d say it’s pretty likely the track is at least soft to muddy. If it stops raining early enough, they could salvage the track with the tarps, but right now rain looks likely for the night show too....

Well we might luckout. It was 68 Sunday, 73 yesterday and 79 today. Seems like the weather is pushing out. Another mid 70s day tomorrow. Its definitely not hopeless

How about what idiot at feld would move to dategrom mid April back to mid March. We actually get alot of nice days in april.1 mudder in 10 years is pretty good here

weather.com says that it'll be 60% throughout the day but then 10% at night, so hoping that it stays that way itll be okay.Photo

Well I generally go with the NWS forecasts and while it does look like typical March weather the amounts forecast are not horrific. Hopefully we get lucky and it is not too wet. I hope the AMA and Feld don't get too twitchy and go to a single practice/qualifier before they really know how bad it will be. In 2017 they clipped practice and it never really even rained. As a guy who goes for the whole day experience, I really want my money's worth!

Awesome, good to hear straight from the horses mouth. I'm good with a bit of rain, the Only downside is it sucks for the spectators.

Cloudy in Olympia this morning. Could mean nothing, but it’s been clear and sunny for the past week +, and could mean “something” is rolling in. But hell who knows up here ??‍♂️ Just really don’t want a repeat of last years race, Clutch Fry Cross

Latest NWS/NOAA update is much improved. Most the rain falling Friday overnight, chance of showers on Saturday at 40% with only a few hundredths in precip. Should be good to go, I hope we get all the practice and qualifying sessions in as well!

Ama/FIM has already had the meeting to cut time on all races including 5 minutes off 250 and 450 mains.

Weather.Com is showing only a 20% chance on Sat.

Good luck trying to predict our weather up here guys. I've been here since 1994 and I just assume it's going to rain every day and enjoy it when it doesn't.

People underestimate how much of a reality that statement actually is.

once it stops raining in may to june it is usually really nice throughout the summer/fall, and is literally the only thing that keeps me up here.

The winters will be what drives me away eventually, maybe.......

Was once there, now old, fat and tired... require much more horsepower now...

It’s funny how people make post like this 5 days before the event. Especially if Seattle it’s changes quickly 2 days out you can get a better idea. Hopefully a dry race track looks way better than last week

That’s what did it for me. A couple years ago my lawn was soaked to the point where it was like walking on a sponge, in April. May, June July and August are usually awesome. September can be good. Then it’s safer to assume rain till April again.
