Rain chances for Grand Prix at 30 to 40 percent
It's still looking like race fans will see showers or thunderstorms sometime during the three-day Baltimore Grand Prix "Festival of Speed" this weekend.
The National Weather Service at Sterling, Va., says an approaching cold front will bring clouds and the threat of rain beginning sometime after 2 p.m. Saturday. It doesn't sound like a gusher of rain - unless a thunderstorm passes right over downtown Baltimore.
But a wet track and wet grandstands could make it an interesting weekend for drivers and fans. The chances are set at 30 percent on Saturday, rising to 40 percent on Sunday and Monday. Don't let the clouds fool you into skipping the sun block.
Once the cold front gets by us on Monday, Central Maryland will be seeing some cooler weather. Lows by Tuesday are forecast to hold in the 70s for only the fifth time since June 1. Same for Wednesday.
Starting to feel like autumn is just around the corner. But late summer is a beautiful time of year in Maryland. Enjoy it.
