Weekend weather forecast

Posted: May 03, 2013

Good news for Phillies fans, Broad Street Run participants and spectators, gardeners, and anyone else expecting to be outdoors over the next four days: Expect pleasant temperatures, a fair share of sun, no rain and very little wind.

Be glad you're not in parts of Minnesota or Wisconsin, where half a foot of snow could fall today.

In Philadelphia, highs will be about 70 today through Sunday, which is about normal for this time of year.

Lows will be a little on the chilly side, in the mid 40s after a low near 50 tonight.

Highs at the Shore should be about 10 degrees cooler, with more moderate lows, closer to 50.

Tonight at Citizens Bank Park, the Phillies open a four-game home stand against the Miami Marlins. Temperatures are expected to start out in the mid 60s for the three 7:05 p.m. games tonight through Saturday. Conditions should cool into the mid 50s over the next few hours.

Sunday's 2:35 p.m. start should see the mid to upper 60s, with temperatures continuing to warm a little.

Expect the mid 50s when tens of thousands begin the Broad Street Run near Central High in North Philadelphia. Temperatures will warm into the 60s over the next couple of hours.

Next week, there's a chance of rain from Monday night through Wednesday (a period when the Phillies are in San Francisco), with normal temperatures for early May, from the low 50s to the low 70s.
