Weather for the World Series so far has been unseasonably mild and tonight’s contest will be no exception. The deciding game 7 between the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field in Cleveland will feel more September than early November. For the first pitch at 8:08 p.m. EDT, temperatures are likely to be in the upper 60s to around 70 degrees.
Tonight’s game will be historic from a baseball standpoint. The two teams have the longest droughts from winning a World Series Championship – 108 seasons for the Cubs, 68 seasons for the Indians.

A storm system to the north will keep temperatures well above average. A warm southwesterly wind ahead of the low will push readings to near record levels in Ohio today.
As the front pulls close to Ohio, clouds will increase and isolated showers are possible, but the steady rain should stay well north of Cleveland.
A round of rain will accompany the front on Thursday in Cleveland, followed by cooler temperatures back to near normal levels.
