KANSAS CITY, Mo. (March 10, 2014) – A slight chance of thunderstorms is expected in Louisville, Ky. for the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby, Weather 2020 meteorologists announced. Better chances for rain are expected in the days leading up to The Derby but spectators at the May 3 event are likely to see nice conditions with temperatures in the mid-70s. Weather will be similar for The Derby’s May 2 companion event, the Kentucky Oaks.

In early January, Weather 2020 issued the only accurate forecast predicting no snow and temperatures in the 50s at Super Bowl XLVIII on Feb. 2 in East Rutherford, N.J. The forecast contrasted other predictions issued in the days and weeks leading up to the event from traditional methods that called for bitter cold and possible snow.

All Weather 2020 forecasts are based on Lezak’s Recurring Cycle (LRC), a revolutionary weather forecasting technology discovered by Gary Lezak, a seasoned weather expert and current chief meteorologist at Kansas City’s 41 Action News.

“With Weather 2020’s proven track record of accurately forecasting weather events, we are confident spectators and participants will see a good chance of favorable weather conditions at his year’s Kentucky Derby” said Lezak, Weather 2020 founder.

LRC-based weather forecasts are available to consumers by downloading the Weather 2020 app. Available from the Apple App Store on iOS 7-enabled devices, Weather 2020 provides users with forecasts in the continental U.S. and Hawaii 77 days beyond the current seven-day standard. The free download includes Weather 2020’s short-range (seven-day) and long-range (12-week) forecasts for unlimited locations.

“Long-range forecasting is available now for the first time to consumers through the Weather 2020 app and to businesses nationwide with Weather Forecast Alerts from Weather 2020,” Lezak said.   

The iOS app also allows users to launch customizable Weather Balloons to track events up to 12 weeks in advance. Weather Balloons alert users with real-time email and push notifications when the forecast for their tracked date is updated - a valuable feature for event planners who regularly depend on weather forecasts. Unlimited weather balloons can be launched for one month, three months and one year for 99 cents, $2.99 and $8.99, respectively.
