    I have to start out by saying that I’m out of town, and will be busy for the vast majority of the day, so unfortunately I won’t be able to answer questions like I usually do. This is just going to be a guideline for you as you build rosters today. Most of the games with “low” concerns will likely not amount to any game impact, but any time that YELLOW color pops up, it’s simply because I can’t rule out a delay.

    CHC @ WASH – A few pop-up storms, which are impossible to pinpoint, but most should be after the game. YELLOW / GREEN.

    TEX @ KC – Rainy and stormy this morning, but the system is clearing out. Looks pretty good back behind the current line of ugliness. GREEN / YELLOW.

    MIL @ MIN – Really isolated stuff here, but a few showers and potentially storms move in the area late. Again, impact is unlikely, but I can’t rule it out. YELLOW / GREEN.

    SF @ PHI – Same story, different game. Really isolated coverage here. GREEN / YELLOW.

    MIA @ COL – Another round of intense thunderstorms, this one lines up pretty well with game time. Current forecast models do keep the bulk of the ugliness north of Denver, but the tail end of this system will likely clip the stadium. Another set-up in COL where a delay is definitely the more likely outcome, but I can’t fully rule out a PPD. I’m putting this at YELLOW / ORANGE, and reminding everyone that the first color listed is given more weight.

    PIT @ ATL – Isolated storms, pop-up variety. The chances one goes over the stadium is slim, but certainly possible. GREEN / YELLOW.

    WIND

    OAK @ BOS – East wind 10-15, with gusts around 25mph. This is blowing in from right.

    BAL @ CLE – NE wind around 15mph sustained, that’s blowing in from right-center.

    DET @ CWSNNE 10-15mph. That’s blowing out to right some, but the angle might be too harsh, where it’s also blowing a bit from left field to right field. Maybe a slight bump to hitters, but you might want to just consider this one a wash, since the angle could carry a ball deep to right into foul territory.

    That’s it for today… and unfortunately I really mean that. I’ll try to sneak away and post some updates to twitter (@KevinRothWx), but I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to get in.

    Happy Grinding,
    Kevin

    COLOR GUIDE:
    GREEN – Play on, playa.
    YELLOW – Delay or late start possible.
    ORANGE – Delay or late start likely, PPD possible.
    RED – This game is not worth the risk.

    No change, still think a delay or late start is very likely, with a PPD possible but MUCH less likely.
