(EDITOR'S NOTE: This story was last updated at noon ET).

As of Noon ET, rain from Hurricane Matthew continued to pelt Charlotte Motor Speedway, which this weekend is hosting a NASCAR Sprint Cup and XFINITY Series doubleheader.

So far, NASCAR has not officially called a halt to the day, although the weather forecast is not good at all.

Weather.com is calling for a 95 percent chance of showers between noon and 1 p.m., with the lowest probability of rain throughout the entire afternoon and evening being only a small window between 4 to 5 p.m. ET when it drops to just 10 percent. But at 5 p.m. ET it goes back up to 25 percent and climbs higher from there throughout the evening and even overnight.

Today's at-track schedule calls for practices for the Bank of America 500 Sprint Cup race at 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

On the XFINITY side, qualifying for the Drive for the Cure 300 is slated for 4:45 p.m., with the race at 8 p.m.

Obviously, all of that is dependent on weather.

FOXSports.com will update the forecast and the schedule throughout the day.
