Should you adjust your handicapping for this year's Derby to decide who you think might run best on an off track? Well...maybe.

After weekend rains, it poured in Louisville, Ky., this morning and the National Weather Service is calling for isolated storms Wednesday and a 60% chance of storms Thursday.

For Friday, Kentucky Oaks day, the forecast is for mostly cloudy skies and a high of 75 degrees. On Derby day, there is a 30% chance of showers and a cooling front making for a high of 65.

Of course the forecast calls for sunny skies Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday following the Derby.
