Nationals vs. Cardinals weather forecast: Sunny weather’s a hit and we need plenty of them!

A jacket would be a good idea, especially since the sun sets before the end of the game. Let’s hope it isn’t the end of the playoffs.

Nationals vs. Phillies weather forecast: Regular season closes on a warm note

The morning clouds should show some breaks during the afternoon. Any sun will help temperatures warm nicely into the 80s. Signing off for the regular season. We’ll see you back here for the playoffs!

Nationals vs. Phillies weather forecast: Showers possible but probably playabe

This game will have the feel of a game played anytime from early June to early September. Very pleasant mid-to-upper 70s for the balance of the game.

Is there anything better than September baseball? (Other than October baseball?) Regardless, its a beautiful day to get to the ballpark.

Nationals vs. Brewers weather forecast: Warm for a fall game, rain chances up late

Most or all of the game should end up dry, but as we get past 4 p.m. or so, chances that showers or t’showers move in grow to about a coin flip. Otherwise, just a touch of humidity out ahead of the front, but not too bad.

Nationals vs. Marlins weather forecast: Storm risk increases during game

Some sun should be around as the game gets underway, and there’s a decent shot that we get through it all without any bad weather. However, a line of potentially damaging storms could be knocking on the door by game’s end. Prepare for the possibility of it to arrive while out, just in case.

It’s not a guarantee, but showers and storms are likely (60 percent chance) to develop during the game. Delays and even postponement are on the table, although there’s a chance they get the game in.

Nationals vs. Cardinals weather forecast: Scattered showers and storms could douse and delay

It’s a warm and muggy one at the ballpark. Scattered showers and storms are likely across the D.C. area. Not a sure bet they’ll soak the stadium, but definitely have the rain gear handy.

Nationals vs. Cardinals weather forecast: A bit of July in September

Unless you’re a fan of baking in the sun, be glad this isn’t a midday game. Heat and humidity probably call for an extra beer (plus lots of water!). If there’s a t’shower, it’ll be isolated.

Remember last evening? This one’s quite a bit like that. At least the sun’s not an issue even if heat and humidity still are. Watch out for a roaming shower or storm.

Nationals vs. Marlins weather forecast: Doubleheader, double humidity

Very muggy, but at least not triple digits. Still, be mindful of drinking water if you stay the entire 5-6 hours. A few thundershowers could pop nearby or virtually overhead with little warning, so take a small umbrella.

Nationals vs. Braves weather forecast: A good day for a baseball marathon

A doubleheader in July could be brutal around here. However, in this case plentiful clouds and a cold front to the south combine to create a day where being outside is a pleasure. Just a small shower threat here and there as well.

Nationals vs. Braves weather forecast: Thunder may crack instead of bats

Hopefully muggy air doesn’t curtail our recent winnings, assuming the game gets played. We do have roving showers that could roll through and delay the game at least. Please take shelter if you hear thunder, under the concourse. Also if you get too warm, seek out a cooling room.

Nationals vs. Mets weather forecast: Roar of thunder possible, roar of crowd a given

Fortunately, the game could be over before the thundershowers really fire up, but a brief game delay is not out of the question. Some added clouds take an edge off heat, but it’s still soupy

Nationals vs. Orioles weather forecast: Muggy, storm possible

We have somewhat challenging conditions lined up for our local matchup. Muggy, very cloudy, somewhat breezy conditions will be stirred-up as the cold front plows into us from the west. Take breathable rain gear and be sure to hydrate! With some luck it’ll all blow out to the east pretty quick.

It doesn't look like a washout by any means, but there could be noticeable rain drops at times. Temperatures are quite comfortable though.

Clouds likely dominate the sky for the game, and there is a chance of showers and thunderstorms which could be strong. It might be advisable to prepare for passing rain and potentially muggy conditions, if possible.

NatCast: Increasing rain chance as game progresses

With some luck, we should be able to squeeze this game in before potentially heavier showers and storms arrive during the afternoon or evening. If rain arrives, it’ll bump temperatures down at least 10 degrees from what’s shown.

It’s been a while since we have needed to dress in layers – but now is the time! Our bodies won’t be used to the cool breeze and temperatures by game’s end perhaps as cool as upper 50s! With the sun setting earlier, it won’t help keep you warm either!

A 20% chance of storms this evening offers some risk to the game, but the main threat should be north and east of the city. Any inclement weather should be short-lived too. Temperatures drop through the 80s toward the 70s during the course of the game.

NatCast: Warm, muggy, and hopefully dry

We’re running out of time for midday games to be super pleasant. This one should be OK, but watch out for a potential shower anyway. Temperatures are in the low 80s much of the time, though sunshine and humidity could make it feel warmer.

NatCast: Storm disruptions possible

Storms that bubble up in the heat of the afternoon may continue roaming the area into the evening. While the odds are good it won’t be a total rainout, the chance of some rain is also fairly high.

NatCast: Showers probable

With a touch of humidity in the air, I recommend wearing breathable clothing. In combination with a light rain jacket, you should be able to enjoy the game, even if a small shower heads your way.

Rain chances threaten to disrupt today’s ballgame, but a midday lull may be just enough to get the game in.

NatCast: Pleasant temperatures, plus a shower risk

If we're lucky showers may skip out on the game, and temperature levels should be pretty nice as well.

NatCast: Any showers should wait until late

Intermittent light rain showers are possible...not enough to for a rain out, but dress for rainy conditions. Temperatures are comfortable - in the mid-to-uper 60s.

NatCast: Beautiful baseball weather

It’s about as good as it gets for a late afternoon spring game. Temps are near 70 to start, but fall back through 60s during the late innings when a light jacket may be warranted. Clear skies.

It should be a pretty delightful evening for some baseball, but also a good bit cooler than recent nights.

NatCast: Not too cool or too breezy

A fine night to hit the ball park. For those of you with a low chill threshold, a jacket for game's end is not a bad idea. The earlier in the day cold front and storms should be long gone and dry weather prevails.

Temperatures slowly falling through the 70s and a fresh breeze make for a nice evening out at the park. There may be a shower or storm though.

Widely scattered thunderstorms should steer clear of the game, but there is still a chance for disruption.

NatCast: Windy doubleheader

A light jacket may be advisable due to the wind, though with plenty of sun I think you could find a much worse day to enjoy a double-day at the ballpark.

NatCast: Trying to dodge a rain out

Saturday’s looking pretty rainy on the whole, but maybe Nats fans luck out with a drier period midday. Don’t bet on it, and bring rain gear if you go!

NatCast: Cool and breezy Friday night game

Temperatures dip through the 50s as an easterly breeze and increasing clouds make it feel slightly chilled. Overall, not a bad evening for baseball.

NatCast: Nicer (warmer) than Opening Day

Decent game weather with some sun at least at the start - clouds try to increase as the game goes on - and temperatures rising through the 50s to maybe near 60.

NatCast: A shower possible, but no washout

A few showers may pop up during the game, and while drips could temporarily be numerous, it does not look like a sustained washout. Bring some rain gear just in case.

NatCast: Damp and chilly opening day

Feels like opening day in Scotland! Dress warmly, jackets required and preferably the waterproof kind. Mist and/or light showers are possible during the game but the steady rain should hold off until it is time to leave the stadium. A rain out is unlikely.
