For those going today: Capital Weather Gang's NatCast has 'Temps will be near or just above 90 for much of the game. Hydrate. Slight chance a shower or storm pulses through late' with 20% chance of precip.
Once again, no Metro track-work today, but I'd budget a bit more time getting there and back due to the other festivities.
Nationals are 3-3 all-time on the Fourth:
2005 - lost at home to Mets, 5-2 (the beginning of the end for the '05 Overachievers who were 50-31 going into that match)
2006 - won at home over Marlins, 6-4
2007 - won at home over Cubs, 6-0
2008 - lost 3-nil at Cincinnati [only time Nats have been on the road on the Fourth]
2009 - won at home over Braves, 5-3
2010 - lost at home to Mets, 9-5
