As the big day approaches, everyone starts to wonder what the weather will be like on November 5th and 6th in Louisville. Here is a collection of various weather resources with forecasts from 5 to 15 days out. You may wish to check several and try to come to a consensus as to just what the weather will be like. Check here for the latest list of Breeders' Cup contenders.

Average high temperature on November 5 is 59 degrees with a low of 50, but the high on November 4 at Louisville, KY, has been as much as 79 (1975) and as low as 19 (1991) so it can be really warm or freezing cold. Average rainfall for November is 3.81 inches, the 5th wettest month of the year, and the average for November 5 is 0.12 inches, so there is a pretty good chance it could be a wet track that day.
