Kentucky Derby Middle Atlantic Forecast
They run the Kentucky Derby tomorrow, and it won't be too hot to trot. Temperatures will be around 70. But, what's going to happen here? That's the mane equestrian. We have had some warm days, but the situation has certainly not stable-ized. Still, we have to take everything in stride. And, as we look at the weekend, we don't expect to pull in the rains too often but there is a herd of moisture ov the Midwest and every now and then clouds can make de-livery of a shower. However, individual showers may not last furlong because they'll really be hoofing it, but they can affect us any time from on our Saddleday and Sunday.
But Hay! Hay! Let's backtrack to today. It's a nice morning and we're going to lasso a pretty nice day. From Saratoga to Horseheads, N.Y., to Phillee, there's enough moisture to spur a shower or two, but there can be some peeks of unbridled sunshine. Trying to promise exactly when a shower shows up is a real nightmare.
Looking at next week, a storm heading through the ranches of the High Plains will be feeling its oats, and north of the storm skies could have lots of graze. Hot air will be in the Long Horn State, but the the hitch is that hot air stampeding in from the south will meet a high hurdle when it encounters the cool air in the northeast. That could eventually mean areas of rain where thunder is herd. We'll continue to rustle up some radar and saddle light pictures and if there's anything new we'll cattletale.
