There are several outdoor activities this weekend and the weather is going to cooperate nicely! Let's start with Game 5 with our Orioles. It will take place at Yankee Stadium at 5:07 this evening. First pitch will happen under mostly sunny skies but it will be breezy with the winds out of the northwest 15-20 mph.
Saturday is the Baltimore Running Festival. The race begins at 8:00 in the morning with plenty of sunshine but it is going to be cold! A Freeze Watch will still be in effect for Harford, Baltimore, Carroll, Howard and Frederick counties. Temps will be in the upper 30s to 40 degrees for the start of the race.
Sunday the Ravens take on the Cowboys at 1:00 pm but before then, it will be the perfect day to get out and go pumpkin picking or put up Halloween decorations because temperatures will be in the upper 60s to 70 degrees with tons of sun.
No matter what you have planned for the weekend, it is going to be one you won't forget weatherwise and hopefully sportswise with a win from the Os and the Ravens!!!
