Game one of the World Series is tonight in Cleveland with first pitch scheduled at 8:08 p.m. EDT between the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians. With both teams having an extended World Series drought of a combined 89 years, fans are looking forward to getting the games started without weather delays. Thankfully, the forecast looks dry with occasional cloudiness. Those in attendance at Progressive Field will feel a cool north wind off Lake Erie up to 10 mph with chilly temperatures in the 40s.
The forecast for Game two is not as easy, which is scheduled for Wednesday at 8:08 p.m. EDT in Cleveland. A storm system now in the Upper Midwest will slide into the Ohio Valley and create numerous showers and a strong breeze. The widespread heavy rain may hold off until later in the evening, so shower timing will be key to finishing the game without delays. Check back with WeatherNation for forecast updates.
UPDATE 10:20 p.m. EDT 10/25
With the threat of rain looming, Major League Baseball has moved up the start time of Game two an hour to 7:08 p.m. EDT on Wednesday.
