12:23 pm
4:05. a few last lingering showers. these will be a lot lighter. that's the good news. the bulk of the rain arrives earlier on. so maybe a quick delay, we can get things going. the only down side about this, is that if the rain comes earlier, which is set to, as of now, it is going to get colder, faster. so the game might be delayed and it is sure going to be colder. so if you are headed to the nats home opener, you want to bring the rain gear, and some extra larous and probably the gloves. because temperatures will take a dive once again friday and into the weekend. so much so that on friday, we will be talking about passing flurries once again. and that trend is going to stick around for saturday, too. and this weekend, it looks pretty cold. not exactly april temperatures. and it is a typical april forecast. with the numbers going up and down, up and down. today, 49 degrees. tomorrow, 59. and tomorrow looks pretty great. it will be a little breezy but that's about it. clouds increase late in the day. rain and showers, are going to keep fine-tuning that forecast for yo
