The stretch of foggy mornings this week continues Thursday, and it will on Friday, too. A weak high pressure system that has kept weather nice in the afternoons for the most part is keeping winds light. That, coupled with high dewpoints overnight, is making the fog build up as temperatures fall into the early morning hours, said Kevin Whitt, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sterling, Va. Dewpoints at BWI Airport have virtually matched the temperature as it drops overnight, with both at 58 degrees as of 8 a.m. Visibility had been as short as 1/16 of a mile in some parts of Maryland and Virginia, but it grew to about a mile at BWI as of 9:30 a.m., Whitt said.

Stop me if you have read this before. OK, don't stop. Because you have read this before. About five times before. But this next stretch is a real test for the Orioles. Maybe the most important of this surprising season. I know, I'll pause to duck the flying fruit. The Orioles keep passing tests. Or they fail them and we expect them to go away and they rally again. This past eight-game road trip to Minnesota and Cleveland didn't look particularly daunting. Minnesota is struggling and the Indians had been playing over their heads in the first half.

The Orioles added a pair of relievers Monday, the first day of expanded rosters, as they recalled right-hander Evan Meek from Triple-A Norfolk and purchased the contract of left-hander Joe Saunders from the Tides. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the club initially planned to just add Saunders on Monday, but he decided to add Meek as well after the team was forced to use five relievers in the 12-8 win over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday. The team is also expected to add right-hander Ryan Webb on Tuesday as long as he is OK after his outing at Norfolk on Monday.

As landscaper Bill Akehurst said in Thursday's front-page story on developing drought conditions , "This is 'April showers bring May flowers' and we haven't seen it. "If there's no April showers, May flowers are going to suffer. " A 15-day stretch of dry weather that ended with Wednesday's drizzle shows just how unusual the lack of April showers has been. Baltimore had a stretch of 15 days without measurable rain, meaning a trace or nothing. That ranks as Baltimore's fourth-longest stretch on record> without precipitation in the month of April, according to the National Weather Service.

The roadside root beer stand's orange contours memorialize this venerated shrine to a different era. Its fans make pilgrimages to this Stewart's franchise on Pulaski Highway, a truck-battered stretch of U.S. 40 in eastern Baltimore County, to recall the food experiences of their youth. This is the place where it seemed a little cooler in the days before broiling city neighborhoods such as Highlandtown or Canton had air conditioning. Suburban Rosedale was the summer destination when the sun was bright, the humidity was high and school was a distant notion.

Orioles relief pitchers Darren O'Day and Zach Britton effectively made Wednesday night's 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels at Camden Yards a seven-inning game. Right-hander Kevin Gausman left the game after seven strong innings -- the first 4 2/3 of which were perfect -- allowing O'Day and Britton to handle the final six outs. They did so in workmanlike fashion. O'Day retired his three batters -- two by strikeout -- on just 16 pitches. Britton surrendered one hit in the ninth, but managed his 21st save of the season after another 16 pitches.

OAKLAND, CALIF. -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter doesn't like to imply that one game is more important than another in a 162-game season, but he knows his team is facing a critical stretch coming out of the All-Star break. After winning 10 of 13, the Orioles began the second half of the season leading the American League East at the break for the first time since 1997, the last time the club won a division title. But the Orioles - currently four games up on the second-place Toronto Blue Jays - will lead off the second half by playing 29 consecutive games against teams with a record of .500 or better.

It's usual that an accusation against reporters comes from the political right, whether alleging they're in the tank for President Obama or that they're giving Hillary Clinton a free ride on the Benghazi terrorist attacks. But now a charge comes from the political left, passed on by a professional news kibitzer, Media Matters for America. Its website carries an article titled "By rehabilitating Iraq War boosters, is the press forgiving itself?" Eric Boehlert, a staff member, argues that in the latest military crisis in Iraq, some television reporters have gratuitously given airtime to Bush architects of the 2003 invasion to dump on Obama.

The first significant stretch of heat this year already has some residents yearning for the cooler days of early spring, but they'll have to wait until the end of the week for some relief. Temperatures in downtown Baltimore reached 95 degrees Tuesday, which was notably above the mid-80s weather that's typical this time of year, according to the National Weather Service. The all-time high for June 17 was 96 degrees in 1939. The Tuesday high at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, where records are measured now, was 94. Kurt Miller, wearing a dress shirt and trousers, cursed the heat while as he walked through downtown Baltimore on his lunch break.

In a cabin built in the 1750s, just a few hundred feet from a 201-year-old stone bridge across the quiet Casselman River, a man sits at a slab of a wooden table, an array of carving tools spread before him. The rush of traffic from nearby Alternate U.S. 40, also known as Route 40, does not bother Gary Yoder. Nor does the "thump-thump-thump" of the weaving loom from the cabin next door. The most celebrated crafter of wooden bird sculptures in Western Maryland is too engrossed to notice.

I got in late from Charlottesville and need some coffee badly, but haven't had it yet. So this will be a short Coffee Companion, and it helps that there was really only one local sports headline yesterday. - Bud Norris' best start as an Oriole led the team to a 4-0 win to open a three-game set with Boston . But most of the focus was on Manny Machado, who was torched all day before he apologized in a MASN exclusive interview , which caused he and the team to be further skewered . Machado spoke to the full media after the game.
