    Default Rolex weather

    If what is going on here is any indication, y'all better take winter coats and rain coats. The weather predictions are nasty.

    The horses will love the weather. No need for tank tops and shorts!

    Where do you live that you need a winter coat with lows of 52? Was planning on the rain coat.

    I just checked weather.com and it said 64 with a 30% chance of showers on XC day. Sounds great to me. However, it will change. I always check Friday night and am prepared for 10 degrees either direction and rain no matter what it says

    It's been raining like crazy all day.

    It will be cold and wet until after lunch. The "high" probably won't be until after 2pm.

    The horses won't care and I always enjoy the dressage on a chilly day, add points for rain and wind. Evens the playing field

    Mississippi. I damn near froze last year on XC day with the wind. This year looks to have similar weather, except maybe wetter.

    Hmmm. Guess it is all about what you are used to. Last year was fine for me. I am not crazy about rain though. Might have to watch it from the bar!

    I don't remember last year being cold at all -- at least not on XC day, which is the only day I go anymore. I would prefer low 60's, and I'm sure the horses would like it even cooler

    It's easier to stay warm out there than to cool off!

    Actually, our local weather ( I am north of the KHP) is calling for temps in the 30's tonight. I hope that it warms up before WFP's first ride tomorrow morning. Riding an extremely fit event horse in 40 degree weather should make for interesting Thursday morning dressage rides.

    The rain has stopped here and the skies are looking a bit brighter.

    Looking forward to any improvement over today If I didn't have to go pick up someone in Louisville I wouldn't leave the hotel. Decided to forgo the trot up.

    Ugh, No, Nothing worse that spectating in the cold and rain. Well The weathermen have been known to be wrong. Fingers crossed, that Thursdays forecast becomes Sat. Forecast!

    I find that if it is rainy,and windy 52 for an extended period can be bone chilling!
    Better to err on the warm side.

    Funny you should say that, I was just thinking this morning that they must pray for rain every year. Think of the sales boost!

    Maybe the ridiculously handsome men with the lovely accents they hire to stand in a kiddy pool will get to stand in actual mud this year.

    Horses at the jog were decidedly chilly and on their toes!

    I looked up the weather on a few different sites and its so noncommittal. And so I went and looked at radar and it appears that Saturday and Sunday there is a lot of green coverage but most of the weather is concentrated south so if a front of pressure area pushes south, it might make it dry and colder I would guess. It says 30% rain chance but on radar it looks like a greater chance. The nighttime lows are very cold for this time of year. All I really care about is being comfortable enough to enjoy Rolex and the ground is dry enough to be safe / sure. It does say though that Friday is supposed to be nice.

    My daughter is planning on wearing my Dublins which are waterproof and relatively warm but somewhat too big for her. I told her to walk around in them and make sure they are ok otherwise we will go buy her some rain boots before we go. I just know she is going to wear them for two minutes, say they won't work and try to get me to buy $500 boots at the trade fair. Uh, no.
