A large area of high pressure will be across the eastern United States, providing sunny skies and pleasant temperatures as teams arrive on Wednesday. Temperatures will be even warmer by Thursday as the high pressure area moves south and east, and highs on Thursday will reach into the lower 80s.
A cold front will be crossing northern Florida on Friday, but its passage is expected to be dry. The only noticeable difference with the front will be a few more clouds and a shift of winds to the north. Cooler temperatures will arrive behind the front for Saturday, as highs will be in the lower 70s. It may be breezy as well, with north to northeast winds of 10 to 15 mph, gusting to 25 mph at times. This will be a headwind down the backstretch and a tailwind on the frontstretch. A low pressure system will be developing near Texas on Sunday, which will spread some high clouds into the area, but any rain with this system should hold off until Monday.
