As the big day approaches, everyone starts to wonder what the weather will be like on November 2 and 3 at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, CA. You may wish to check several and try to come to a consensus as to just what the weather will be like.
Average high temperature on November 3 is 76 degrees with an average low of 53, while the record high is 97 degrees in 1949. The high temperature on November 3 at LAX airport has ranged from 59 to 98 in the last 15 years but only went higher than 70 five times. The average rainfall for November is 1.29 inches, so there is a chance of wet weather. Late December through February is the most rainy time of the year there, so hopefully it won't rain in early November. With the return to a dirt track since the last Breeders' Cup held here in 2009, rain can affect the surface.
