As many as ten thousand motorcyclists from across the country have been gearing up for the forty-first annual Phil Peterson's Key West Poker Run.
The three day event got underway on Friday (9/20) and will cover 113 miles of Florida highway.
Riders received poker sheets when they registered, and will draw cards at designated stops along the route. Entrants who draw the ten best poker hands are eligible to play in a winner-take-all round of Texas Hold 'em, set for 11 p.m. Eastern on Saturday (9/21).
The poker run raises money for diabetes research and the Key West Sunrise Rotary Club.
Very gusty winds and heavy rain expected through midnight Wednesday morning as a powerful cold front moves in!
After highs Tuesday near 70 degrees, late Tuesday night into Wednesday temps tumble into the 30s and rain changes to wet snow. Little to no accumulation expected.
Freeze warnings posted Tuesday night into Wednesday AM. Protect sensitive plants!
