The forecast does not look good for this weekend’s Kentucky Derby, as is tradition. A quick glance at the forecast shows a 100 percent chance of rain for the day of the 145th Run For The Roses at Churchill Downs. Oaks Day, you’ll want to pack a poncho, too.
From our friends at Weather.com:
If Louisville gets a downpour as predicted, it will mark the third straight year Mother Nature rained down on the biggest day in the Bluegrass. In 2017, Always Dreaming kicked through the mud to win it. Last year, a sloppy track raised some minor concerns about Justify, the favorite, but even the rain couldn’t slow him down.
It looks like we’re in for another mudslide in 2019.
