What Weather Is in Store for Blue Cross Broad Street Run?

With the Blue Cross Broad Street Run today, the weather is top of mind as runners and spectators make final preparations for the 10-mile dash down Broad Street.

So what is in store for race day as far as wind, possible rainfall and temperature?

First off, the chance for rain is low. And with plenty of sun (a UV Index of 8 out of 10) sunscreen will be a good idea.

"The good news is, we expect to be dry through the weekend with temperatures a little above normal for this time of year," said NBC10 meteorologist Sheena Parveen.

The high Sunday is expected to top out near 80 but that is only in the afternoon. When the race starts at 8 a.m. there should be some sunshine with temps quickly rising to around 58.

The temps could get a little warm for runners as the morning goes on with temps expected to be in the high 60s by 10 a.m.

Race day lows in the 50s are on par with many past races.
