WEATHER BLOG: Wet And Warm
Friday’s forecast is that for most of us. It’ll be the mildest day of the entire workweek — even despite the clouds. A band of showers is now over the area and the activity should tend to shift farther east and dwindle away during the course of the afternoon, so the early part of the afternoon is the wettest.
A break overnight then the next rain maker moves in Saturday, probably by around mid-morning. After that it looks like rain much of the time for the rest of the weekend with the heaviest probably coming late Saturday afternoon and night. A total of between 1 and 2 inches of rain could fall during the course of the weekend.
The weekend outlook is far from pretty, but it should be pointed out that while rather cloudy Saturday, the morning hours between Maryland and Maine should be dry. The steadiest
rain will probably roll into Maryland, Delaware and eastern Pennsylvania between the hours of noon and 2 or 3 p.m. and then New York and New Jersey will follow shortly thereafter.
Temperatures, therefore, will still manage to reach the lower or middle 50s in most place. The rain should continue, on and off, Saturday night and even into Sunday. This low pressure system will slowly begin to pull away from the Eastern Seaboard on Monday morning.
Opening Day will be occurring on Monday. First pitch temperatures will vary from the mid 50s in New York to the low 60s in Baltimore (3:05 p.m. first pitch for the Orioles), with the brighter spots being the warmer one.
