Forecast: Grapefruit League action kicks off this weekPosted on February 24, 2014 by Josh Owens
Happy Monday, Nats fans!
Fantastic day outside here in the DMV, and equally as nice if not better in Viera, Florida as the Nats are well underway with spring training. As is customary for Florida in the spring, some isolated showers and storms have hit the area prompting a rain delay for the Nats at least once during their time down near Melbourne. The rest of this week looks great as well, but as is normal and noted, showers could plague some of the practices and Grapefruit League games slated for the end of the week. Highs will stick in the 80s for the week. Thankfully, it's really not a hugely complicated forecast.
However, as the first game comes up on the 28th at the Mets spring home in Port St. Lucie FL, I'll be posting updates for how the skies look. Nats open the ST home games vs the Braves in Viera on March 1st.
As for here at home, the ridiculous cold makes a comeback this week with maybe some minor snow chances. Updates on that and more on Maryland Weather Center. Follow me on Twitter for Nats Weather updates, @NatsWx, and for local DMV area forecasts, @mymdwx. Have a great day, NatsTown!
