Washington Nationals weather forecast: Showers/storms possible, but should get game in

For tonight’s 7:05 p.m. game: Nats vs. Braves at Nationals Park...

One batch of rain has already moved through the area and radar shows a break in the action for at least a little while. However, the atmosphere is juiced up and isolated showers and storms could pop-up with little warning. A more solid line of storms lurks well to the west - all the way back into southwest Pennsylvania stretching into southeast Ohio. That rain could threaten the region, but not until probably after the game or in the very late innings .

Bottom line: While there’s a chance of pop-up showers/storms that could delay the game, this game should be played and there’s a chance it will be dry throughout. Admittedly, this is a touchy forecast that could change. I’ll update this post if necessary. Also, follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates.

This is an update from our original NatCast posted at 4:55 a.m.
