If you’re trapped at home all day with just you, the pets, the family, and the local and national broadcasters telling you what the weather will be in front of a green screen that is merely a figment of their imagination? Then you’re ready for DraftKings Sportsbook’s weather pool contest for this coming Thursday, April 16th! Because this is the weather, and we don’t want anyone looking outside a window to cheat during the day, all entries are due at 10 p.m. on April 15th.
For now it’s projected there will be a ridge of low pressure off the coast of California, as well as a low front in the Caribbean near Miami. Those should be the drivers of much of the weather being selected for Thursday.
As usual: wait as long as possible to enter this contest, with a closing time is 10 p.m. on Wednesday night. Since forecasts get more accurate, the 9 p.m. update from the National Weather Service and AccuWeather are the ones you want to see.
Here are the cities to be selected, their totals, and the current Weather.com forecast for temperatures on April 16th. The data below is as of 5 p.m. on April 14th.
