Those looking to spend time outdoors this weekend should take proper precautions when staying in the sun for an extended period of time. Regularly apply sunscreen and stay hydrated.

Fans attending any of the Seattle Mariners current home stand will have great conditions for baseball and won't have to worry about the roof closing at Safeco Field.
