    If you read that title like it was a Beach Boys hit, you are doing it right:

    SEA @ LAA – This is about as bad as LA weather gets, which is kind of amazing because it’s not bad at all. Nothing to worry about, maybe a sprinkle, and it would likely be after the game is over. GREEN..

    CLE @ KC – Rain/storms clearing out of K.C. now, and I don’t expect anything to form behind it. GREEN..

    CIN @ PIT – A dotted line of pop up showers and weak t-storms is forming upstream of Pittsburgh and headed in that direction. Even though these storms are relatively weak, and very small, they are juuust strong enough to pop a lightning strike or two, which means our delay potential increases. Even with the very low coverage of storms, it’s possible one (or more if we are unlucky) passes by the stadium and causes a delay. This game will definitely get in, that’s not a concern, but I know pitching is a target here, and the delay potential does exist. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you if a single cell will head over the stadium until about 15-30 minutes before it happens, so it’s just a matter of understanding risk/reward with pitchers in this one. Overall this game looks pretty good, but not great. YELLOW.

    OAK @ MIN – More straight forward here: There’s a line of showers and storms, it needs to clear through MIN before we can play ball. It will clear through pretty early, possibly even before the game starts. I will put this as YELLOW/ GREEN for the chance of a late start. It looks clear back behind the initial line.

    As far as winds, the only wind with any gusto is in KC, but it’s a cross-wind (blowing right to left), so that doesn’t help hitters or pitchers.

    Follow me on twitter (@KevinRothWx) for radar gifs and angry tweets about people canceling games in Colorado 2 hours before first pitch even though every weather model showed the rain drying out (yep, still bitter). Keep in mind it’s a forecast, things can and will change.

    Happy Grinding! – Kevin

    It’s not “horrible” news, lol. It’s a chance of a delay… not a “must-fade lengthy delay”. It’s just risk/reward.

    PS, why does the #1 guy always have to be pitching in the only rain game??

    So, does this mean you will give us a heads up 30 minutes before? :)

    EDIT: ugh, thought I just selected the PIT/CIN game for the quote. Sorry for the long post!

  • NorthSideSwag31

    Just keep checking Twitter until game start. Im holding on Cole. Who is a decent hedge in case it looks iffy at the last second?

    It looks even better now than when I first forecasted. Can’t rule out a delay, but it looks pretty good.

    If lightning does show up in Pittsburgh, can you do that thing from your avatar where you jump up on the cloud and catch it? That would be great, thanks.

    Was there a rain delay in the PIT game? I’m curious to know.
