At this posting, it appears that the thunderstorms expected in Saratoga overnight did not develop although there remains a chance of an isolated storm later this morning. The intensity is anyone’s guess.
Thus, the selections are made guardedly knowing that conditions on the ground, and/or any biases that may develop, should determine final decisions. Otherwise, we’re planing on a main track rated fast but with possible moisture in it.
