Will weather conditions post pone the Kentucky Derby 2011 start time? I have the complete weather forecast for today and Churchill Downs looks like it is in for some storms. Uh Oh! Will all those goofy looking hats be soaking wet prior to the 137th Annual Kentucky Derby?

Hopefully the weather holds up and allows the Kentucky Derby 2011 to go off without a hitch. We all know that meteorologists are glorified “guessers” (I’m kidding) but their weather forecast predictions for today at Churchill Downs do not look good.
