UPDATED 6:40 EASTERN: Increasingly worried about rain chances in NY, *YELLOW / ORANGE.*
Doesn’t look like any huge concerns, but it’s not quite perfect.
MIA @ NYM – Any of the heavier rain will hold off until well after midnight… but there is one plume of moisture out ahead of the main line that is bringing some lighter showers very near to NY currently. Forecast models essentially treat this like it doesn’t exist, which means they have no idea how to handle what it could do in the next few hours. I’m not overly concerned, because it is fairly light, but it’s definitely worth noting and watching. YELLOW / ORANGE . Winds from the south at 15-20mph, with stronger gusts, that’s blowing right to left across the field.
ATL @ WASH – Rain should hold off until after the game. GREEN . Winds SSW at 10-15mph, gusts 25, blowing out to straight center, slight bump to hitters.
CIN @ CHC – Cold, which isn’t great for hitters, but feels-like temps stay above freezing during game hours, so I don’t think they are going to randomly decide to cancel it on us. Winds NW at 10-15mph, blowing across the field, no help to hitters or pitchers.
That’s it for now, be sure to keep an eye on twitter (@KevinRothWx) and back here for any updates.
