Pop the tops
If you have a convertible, this weekend will be the time to pop the top. That includes today! Expect a few clouds, but we'll be mostly sunny with temperatures reaching the upper 70's this afternoon. It won't be very muggy.
For Opening Day at the Box, it will be warm. Expect a temperature near 69° at first pitch under mostly clear skies. Tonight, we'll be a bit warmer as well with temperatures dropping to the mid 50's under mostly clear skies. A bit of fog is possible tomorrow morning.
Saturday will be just a bit warmer, but we'll keep mostly clear skies. Sunday however, you can expect an increase in clouds. Rain isn't expected but if we see any, less than 10% of us will see a sprinkle.
A front pushes through a bit slowly on Monday and Tuesday. This will bring us some showers and cool us down a bit, but not dramatically. If anything, it will help bring the humidity down which will in-turn lower our overnight temps. Have we reached our final freeze of the season? On average, we are right around that time, but it has happened as late as April before.
Enjoy the weekend and enjoy the weather!
