Baltimore will see rain and temperatures in the 50s on Tuesday. The National Weather Service predicts a high temperature of 53 degrees and a 100 percent chance of rain at Baltimore's Inner Harbor. After sunset, the temperature is expected to drop as low as 38 degrees with a 30 percent chance of rain. Last night, the weather service issued an alert for wind gusts of up to 25 mph, but those were expected to subside by 4 a.m. today. Snow could also be on the horizon. Forecasts call for a chance of a wintry mix Wednesday evening, and possible snow early Thursday with little accumulation.

Maryland employers could pick up the pace of job creation to 40,000 positions this year, according to some forecasts, but one local economist expects a slowdown instead. Moody's Analytics and Towson University's Regional Economic Studies Institute expect fairly broad-based job growth in 2014 - they're both predicting about 40,000 positions added in the state, which would be the best performance in years. Full results for 2013 aren't in yet, but Maryland employers added about 34,000 jobs in the 12 months ending in November, according to federal estimates.

Before the season started, as part of our Ravens season preview for the newspaper, I made 10 predictions for the season that were sure to go wrong. The thought process was that it was a different way to preview the season more than it was a way for me to show our readers how bad I am at making predictions. Looking back now that the season is over, I think I accomplished both with my 10 bold predictions . Some of them were spot on. Some were close but no cigar. And some are now totally laughable.

With one game left in the regular season, the outlook does not look good for the Ravens, whose playoff fate is out of their control even if they beat the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Missing the playoffs? I don't see that one coming when I looked into my crystal ball before the season started. But the Ravens still have a chance, so keep your fingers crossed that this won't be my last edition of these four bold predictions. 1. TORREY SMITH WILL BREAK MICHAEL JACKSON'S RECORD Smith has slowed down in recent weeks, but with 1,101 receiving yards this season, he is within striking distance of the team's single-season receiving mark.

Three years before the next presidential election, Republican also-rans are making noises about trying again. The most conspicuous is former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who won the Iowa caucuses in 2008 but quickly faded and pivoted to his own television show to lick his wounds and contemplate his future. Mr. Huckabee wisely decided to take a sabbatical from office-seeking in 2012 as another previous GOP loser, Mitt Romney, dug himself deeper in political obscurity by losing again.

The Ravens have less than a week to achieve an offensive harmony that has eluded them all season. They had very little of it in the 41-7 loss to New England on Sunday, and the Ravens still need to address some internal issues such as communication, among other things. The Ravens are ranked No. 29 in offensive yards, averaging 313.1 per game - including 85.4 yards rushing, which ranks No. 28 in the NFL. In the past two games, they have scored just one touchdown, and they have scored only 23 touchdowns on 48 possessions inside the red zone this season.

State lawmakers will have to address a combined budget gap of $580 million over the next 18 months when they reconvene in January. The state's chief analyst on Wednesday described the problem as relatively small given the nearly $2 billion shortfall the state grappled with in recent years. "We are starting in a small hole, certainly compared to what we have seen in the past," Warren Deschenaux, director of the office of policy analysis in the Department of Legislative Services, said to the Spending Affordability Committee.

For this edition of our WWE pay-per-view predictions, I've added a little special twist. Last week, along with WWE Hall of Famer Bret "Hitman" Hart, I had the pleasure of meeting Nicholas Wright, who is a huge WWE fan. Nicholas writes a blog on wrestling as well as hockey , on which he did a "tell-all" interview with me. I invited Nicholas to join me this month to predict outcomes for the WWE TLC PPV:   Title Unification match: ...
