Cloudy skies, mild temperatures forecast for Opening Day at Oriole Park on Thursday

Whether they can defeat the New York Yankees again is unclear, but the Orioles look likely to beat the rain this week when they open their season at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

Showers are forecast to arrive late in the week, but the weather looks likely to stay clear through Thursday’s 3:05 p.m. matchup with the Yankees. The Orioles won two out of their first three games of the season on a trip to New York that concluded Sunday.

High pressure is forecast to be overhead for the middle part of the week, keeping weather dry.

After an unseasonably chilly start to April for the early part of the week, temperatures surged into the lower 70s Wednesday afternoon. They aren’t forecast to be that warm Thursday, though.

Temperatures are forecast to reach the lower 60s by first pitch at Oriole Park, falling to the mid-50s by sundown.

Clouds are forecast to increase throughout the day Thursday as a low-pressure system approaches the region.

National Weather Service forecasters predict about 50 percent chances that rain will move in Thursday night, and then showers are likely by Friday morning.

Periods of “moderate” rainfall are expected Friday, with perhaps half an inch of rainfall across the region.
