Obviously, the only thing harder to predict than who will win the eight Breeders' Cup races at Churchill Downs on Nov. 4 is what the weather will be like in Louisville, Ky., on that date.

On Thursday, Oct. 26, the 10-forecast from the National Weather Service forecast partly cloudy skies and a high temperature of 72 degrees.

Well, just a day later, on Oct. 27, the same 10-day forecast from the same National Weather Service predicts Nov. 4 in Louisville will be mostly cloudy with a high of 47 degrees.
