Humidity remains low but rises again late weekend – Sunday race day will start mild with a slight rise in humidity late day. Be sure to wear plenty of sunscreen – sunny skies forecast through Sunday afternoon.  High temperatures this year for the race will climb into the the upper 70’s  – a full 10 degrees warmer than last years and much more comfortable than the sizzling high of 101 in 2012.  Only 6 races ever have run in 90° heat.

Showers may start to show up on the scene later Monday but more likely Tuesday as humidity rises along with the temperatures.


Great chance under clear skies tonight to see a shooting star or more! newly discovered comet to bring possible meteor shower (or storm) experts not sure as to how many per hour. Peaks at 3 AM from the north, northeastern skies. Good luck!


Shooting star late tonight?
