After record-setting rain along the Gulf of Mexico with more than 8.5″ in New Orleans, making it the fourth rainiest day in history, we continue to track this system as it moves to the northeast. The World Series starts Tuesday night in Kansas City, Missouri and it’s going to be a close call with the rain chances. Per the latest model guidance, it looks like there is a chance for some light to moderate showers moving through around the first pitch. However, it looks like the rain will taper through the game. So, it’s a good idea to prepare for rain Tuesday night.
Game 2 is Wednesday night in Kansas City, Missouri and it looks to be dry, however cool.
Moving on to the rest of the week’s forecast, as we continue to track the rain to the northeast: it is going to be a wet week with many locations picking up 1″ to 2″ by Friday morning. The good news is that by Saturday and Sunday, the weather improves leaving us with a perfect weekend.
