The local weather people are far more pessimistic. They’re calling for a total of 2.5 - 5 inches of rain between Friday night and Sunday.
Normally, they try to “put on a happy face” when it comes to weather... this time, they’re all saying, “It’s gonna be WET, and possible severe”. :-(
Sounds about par for the course for Louisville this time of year. Looks like it's going to be a 'college kids getting drunk in the infield and play slip and slide with the tarps' kind of Derby.
