INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – While hundreds of thousands of people make their final preparations for the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500, they are also preparing for a variety of weather scenarios.
“I’ve been watching the weather every day hoping it’s not rainy and it’s been perfect every year since I started going so fingers crossed,” one race fan said Saturday.
The weather forecast for Sunday shows some precipitation could enter the Indianapolis area in the early morning hours. There also a chance for severe weather later in the day.
“I’m already planning on it,” race fan Devin Nelson said. “(Sunday) is going to be a rain out. It’s the way it is. I’ve been here for 22 years so I know when that forecast is not good.”
