Las Vegas Motor Speedway - NASCAR

The race time forecast will be Sunny, 86°F. Winds will be gusty though, SW at 15-20 mph.

An earlier Air Force recon flight did not find an established low-level center of circulation for this system, Invest 97L. That being said, winds with this system are approaching tropical storm force. A recon flight is currently en route with more planned for Wednesday. This will likely be upgraded to Tropical Storm Matthew over the next 12-18 hours.

Over the next 72 hours, it is forecast to move along a westerly track into the central Caribbean. There is a fair bit of discrepancy on the forecast models beyond that point; I am inclined to follow the European/GFDL guidance, than the GFS where the storm makes a sharp right-hand turn at 74°W, north across Hispaniola. This would put the system into the western Caribbean, leaving the Gulf of Mexico at a higher risk of impacts from this system.

I will provide updates & insight as I can, given my work, school and family schedules.
