Kentucky Derby

Greetings Mets,

With the Kentucky Derby less than 48 hours away, we wanted to share with you some rain climatology for Derby Day (especially for those of you at NBC affiliates). We've enclosed a graphic indicating the wettest Derby Day (2.31" in 1918) and the percentage of Derby Days that had rain at some point during the day (46%).

Let us know if you think you can use it. Thanks!
