Virgin Mobile Festival: Sunday Storms?

By Dan Stillman

What: Virgin Mobile Festival
Where: Pimlico Race Course, Baltimore
When: Saturday & Sunday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Temperatures on the first day of last year's Virgin Mobile Festival in Baltimore reached a sizzling, sweaty 98 degrees. Fortunately, that kind of heat is nowhere in sight this time around.

Low humidity and comfortable temperatures are likely - starting out in the mid 70s around 10 a.m., topping out in the low-to-mid 80s for afternoon highs, and dropping to the low 70s by around 10 p.m. However, afternoon and evening thunderstorms are a decent possibility (40-50% chance) Sunday.

Yeah, but you said that this past Tuesday was going to be really hot and awful and it wasn't!

You're right. We had been thinking low-to-mid 90s for Tuesday, dropped the estimate down to upper 80s to low 90s by Tuesday morning, and ended up with mid 80s due to more cloud cover than expected. Hey, we don't get them all right. For this weekend, confidence is pretty high that temps and humidity will be comfortable. The wildcard will be whether the chance of a stray shower or thunderstorm increases from what it looks like now, which is low but not impossible.
