Surface map with the 5 "trouble spots" circled.
Pop-up showers and tstorms, oh so common in the Southeast during the summer, could impact this game this evening. Here is what the radar could look like at 7 PM:
Taking this forecast literally, this game could be in trouble. But you can't do that, as you can notice has scattered the rain is. 50 miles east or west, or even 10, of the city and it is dry. This model simply can't place the rain, especially the popup stuff, exactly where it is going to be this far out but it does give you an idea of how much rain there is going to be. LOW CHANCE OF PPD; LOW TO MODERATE CHANCE OF ANY TYPE OF DELAY(S)
A band of light to moderate rain will slowly be pushing ENE through Chicago around scheduled 1st pitch. This rain is associated with the stalled front that is expected to be right on top of them this evening as can be seen by the surface map above. That is a "trigger" for the rain, something I always look for. Here is what the radar should look like around then:
So the rain is not overly heavy and it should be exiting the city, albeit very slowly. But I do not trust the timing this far out. The rain could be a bit slower or a bit faster to leave. As we go through the afternoon and evening hours we will get a better idea. LOW TO MODERATE CHANCE OF A PPD; MODERATE CHANCE OF SOME TYPE OF DELAY(S)
Showers and tstorms will be scattered across the Plains this evening. Here is what the radar may look like around scheduled 1st pitch for KC:
There is really no surface feature meteorologically that I can look at and say that is what is causing these storms. That is always a positive thing. However, you can see some sort of losse organization with these storms and they are rather widespread. LOW CHANCE OF A PPD; LOW TO MAYBE MODERATE CHANCE OF SOME TYPE OF DELAY
For STL, activity is expected to be less widespread:
LOW CHANCE OF PPD OR ANY TYPE OF DELAY(S)
Very low chance of any impacts from a scattered tstorm. If it becomes more threatening I will add some images. VERY LOW CHANCE OF PPD/ANY TYPE OF DELAY(S)
