    Forecast for 8/10, updated at 5:45PM.

    CHI looking slightly improved in update

    MIA @ WASH – Some very light returns on radar coming upstream, which is nerd talk for “maybe we get a drop or two, but nothing that will stop play”. GREEN / YELLOW.

    KC @ STL – Isolated showers and storms possible tonight. Models don’t actually bring storms over the stadium until after the game, but in this set-up (pop-ups) I’m never putting all my eggs in one basket and just blindly trusting models. For now I think it’s best to just say that a delay is possible, but not a likely outcome. YELLOW.

    HOU @ CWSUpdate: Not going to change colors here, because, realistically, ORNG/YLW for delay chance isn’t too high of a risk… but I’m slightly more optimistic in Chi “shooting the gap” IE, avoiding the worst of the storms
    Safe to say models are all over the place in Chicago. The general idea is “A ragged broken line of storms will move through Chicago tonight, likely during game-time. The specifics of that get a little murky, one high-res model calling for heavy rain for hours (I don’t agree), another model showing a break in storms with Chicago “shooting the gap” and getting dry weather (more likely than the first scenario, but far from a slam-dunk). My best advice is to say that there’s a decent likelihood of a delay, and while we might get lucky and stay dry, I don’t think staying dry is the most likely outcome. As far as PPD chances, I would consider it decently low, but by no means out of the question. I’m going to keep this game at ORANGE / YELLOW, and keep watching radar to see how things develop. Winds SW at 10mph with stronger gusts, blowing right to left across the field.

    LAA @ SEA – Haze and smoke from nearby wildfires in the forecast. Just something I wanted to mention, though I don’t expect that to impact play.

    I’ll still be posting an afternoon update daily, and it will still be free.

    I appreciate all of the free information RG has been providing for years but do not expect all advice to be free. That is unrealistic. Thanks to Kevin.

    Well I appreciate that and that everything has been free but to take away weather forecasts and make people pay for them that seems a little odd to me

    Is it really odd for people to want to get paid for their hard work?

  • mambaland

    It is not odd at all. RG is a business. They give a ton of free content, so don’t begrudge their attempt to make a little more money for a valued service. Or everyone will start using weather.com and other sites and they won’t make much at all. Who knows, but they have that right to try it out.
