WEATHER BLOG: Preakness
While all the news isn’t good, that doesn’t mean it is all bad, either. Starting with today, there ought to be a good deal of sunshine and the afternoon will be very nice. Highs will be in the upper 70s, making it somewhat cooler than what yesterday was, but still very close to the seasonal averages.
The Black-Eyed Susan Race at Pimlico today will have some fabulous weather, but as a front that is buried to our south and west begins to reverse its course tomorrow and tomorrow night, the weather around here is going to gradually deteriorate.
The wind flow tomorrow will be out of the east, which is often a tell-tale sign that Atlantic moisture is going to be a factor, which it will. Although there should be plenty of clouds, and the temperature tomorrow afternoon will be hard-pressed to get above 70 in most places, any shower or thunderstorm will probably manage to hold off until very late in the day.
For the Preakness, the race time temperature should be around 68, and there is a 30% chance for a shower. The chances for getting showers and a thunderstorm will be even greater tomorrow night and on Sunday, there will be some warmer air pressing into the area early next week. Temperatures should soar into the mid 80s by Wednesday. Have a good weekend!!
