Belmont Stakes 2013 weather forecast: Expect a wet muddy track

Moisture and rain associated with tropical storm Andrea will cause muddy racing conditions this weekend for the Belmont Stakes

Remnants of tropical storm Andrea will be moving up the east coast today into Saturday. This has the potential of dropping 2 to 4 inches of rain through Saturday morning. That will make for a very muddy and wet track surface.

Rain showers, steady and heavy at times. Breezy as well with winds out of the east between 10 to 20 mph. Rain amounts could range from 1 to 2 inches during the day and an additional 2 inches overnight into Saturday morning. It will be cool with highs in the upper 60s.

Rain showers are likely during the morning but a break is expected from late morning into the afternoon and evening. While there will be a break there is still a chance of a scattered rain shower in the afternoon and evening. Winds will be out of the northwest and still breezy between 10 and 20 mph. Afternoon temperatures a little warmer around the low to mid 70s.
