Here's the regional forecast from the National Weather Service:
Totals over five inches? Baglady, I think we're about to get ALL your missing spring rain. In two days.
Farther down the page, they say:
324 PM EDT THU APR 29 2010 /224 PM CDT THU APR 29 2010/...AN ACTIVE WEATHER PERIOD[I love that phrase "active weather period"]
"likely result in flooding problems"-- ya think???
So if you're going to bet on the Derby, the forecast says to pick a mudder.
(Or possibly a horse who's been doing equine water therapy...)
[edited to say I tried to fix the formatting, and it looked fine in preview, but now it looks like this again. Drat.]
