Eagles v Rebels – Weather Update

Eastbourne Speedway now have access to a weather expert at the Met Office to ensure we have up-to-date and more accurate weather forecasting models for all speedway fixtures at Arlington.

The latest updates for racing tomorrow when we face Somerset in the Championship league (7.30pm) are increasingly positive.

Our information is this:

A belt of possibly heavy rain will pass over the Eastbourne area on Friday morning, then clearing for a warm and sunny day. 

Further heavy rain will come in overnight but is scheduled to clear by breakfast time and showery rain will then clear by midday. 

The remainder of Saturday will be cloudy but pleasantly warm and the chances of light rain will decrease from early afternoon, growing increasingly dry by early evening.

The weather will clear from the west meaning that supporters travelling from Somerset should see little or no rain.

Only those travelling from north and east of London, including Kent, Essex and the Eastern counties ,should see any significant rain from early on Saturday afternoon.

The heaviest of that rain will settle over the eastern coasts and in to the south and East Midlands before moving gradually north.

That may mean you will set off in rain, while the conditions at Arlington are perfect for speedway.

We will keep fans updated.  

Track update – the track is very dry and hard and that any rain on Friday morning and overnight will only help with preparation of a good racing surface for Saturday evening and will reduce the need for artificial watering.

A further update will be issued on Saturday morning.
