Rain could fall in Game 1 of Series
NEW YORK -- There could be more soggy weather in the Bronx for Game 1 of the World Series.
John Murray, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, says there's a 30 percent chance of showers for Wednesday night's opener between the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Yankees. The gametime temperature is expected to be about 47 degrees.
Game 6 of the AL Championship Series was pushed back a day to Sunday after rain soaked Yankee Stadium on Saturday night. New York beat the Los Angeles Angels 5-2 to advance.
Murray said Tuesday the forecast for Game 2 Thursday night calls for mostly clear skies and a low of 48.
According to accuweather.com, a storm system could bring several hours of rain to Philadelphia during the late afternoon and evening on Saturday, when Game 3 is scheduled.
