Forecast for 5/24, updates 5:30 eastern
A few close calls today, but I think they work out OK…
CIN @ CLE – Forecast here remains on track, first batch of rain has cleared as expected, with the second batch poised to move in a bit later tonight. Models show the rain arriving late-game or just after. I’m optimistic that most (if not all) of the game will play, though they may have to battle some rain late. Down to YELLOW / ORANGE for the chance they can’t finish a full 9. Winds ESE at 10-15mph, blowing mostly right to left, a bit out to left.
COL @ PHI – Rain holds off. GREEN . Winds east at 10mph, blowing in from right-center.
SEA @ WASH – Rain holds off. GREEN . Winds ESE at 10-15mph, blowing right to left.
PIT @ ATL – Forecast looks good here too, storms have cleared east as expected, with the second batch not arriving until well after the game. GREEN . Winds W at 10mph, blowing mostly across the park, right to left.
SF @ CHC – We will see some rain tonight in Chicago, though I expect it will remain fairly light. Rain is currently less than 20 miles from the stadium, and slowly moving that direction, but the entire system will shift a bit south later tonight, leaving them decent enough weather to play ball. I think a late start is possible here, but game should otherwise play. I’m a little nervous overall because it’s Chicago, and they seem to make some “interesting” weather choices, but based on weather alone, this is YELLOW / ORANGE for late start potential. Winds north at 15mph, blowing in from left-center.
