Pleased with how the early slate went, and now we get to try to close out strong…
CWS @ BAL – We have plenty of rain around the Mid-Atlantic, heavier rain just north of Philly, heavier rain just of DC… but nothing that is really on target with Baltimore. Looking farther upstream we do have a few isolated storms moving in that general direction, and the HRRR forecast model does bring in some rain around the end of the game, but it’s debatable if that rain ever makes it in to BAL in time to cause issues. It’s not great baseball weather, but it’s more clouds than rain, and I think we look good to play. There’s a chance we have to play through some very light showers, and a chance for a delay (likely later innings if at all), but there’s nothing truly threatening knocking on the doorstep. YELLOW .
A note on temps – Temperatures in the BAL and BOS games will be on the cool side, with game-time temps likely in the 40s. It’s not life-changing, but cold air is dense air, so the ball won’t fly quite as far as if the game was being played with temps in the 70s. For a look at hourly temps for all games, check out the “MLB Weather with Kevin Roth” page, under the Daily Research tab.
I’ll likely be posting some radar images to Twitter, @KevinRothWX, so follow along there for the full experience.
GREEN – Play ball!
YELLOW – Delay possible.
ORANGE – Delay likely, PPD possible.
RED – Just say no.
