PopeCast: Pontiffically Perfect

By Capital Weather Gang

Hat, sunscreen advised for worshipers

Papal Mass

Upper 50s → Upper 60sSunny0%
A bit cool to start. But temperatures should climb quickly, rising through the mid to upper 60s by around noon with no chance of rain. The sun will be strong, so wear a hat and use sunscreen.

PopeCast will be updated as needed through Thursday morning. Also, see our full forecast through the weekend.

Did I hear a statement that the big Papal Mass was on Friday morning???

El Bombo: I think I heard one of the new stations say that there was one in NYC on Friday. I know that he goes up there after he leaves here, so more than likely that's what you heard.

The pope needs to pay his rent on the building and bless the stadium so the Nats might play better. They should require that before the mass begins.

If you didn't believe the part about the sunscreen, be advised that the noon sun angle for April 17 is identical to that on Aug. 27. You've been warned.

I believe you, Steve. I was outside for several hours for an event in late April two years ago and I got a terrible burn. Didn't even think about sunscreen.

Live and learn.
