World Series Forecast: Chicago

If you are fortunate enough to either have tickets to any of the World Series games this weekend, or if you plan on being in Chicago for the great atmosphere, the weather should cooperate for the most part. For Friday, temperatures will be very mild in the lower 70's under a partly cloudy sky. Skies closer to the first pitch time around 7 PM will be mostly cloudy, but temperatures will still be warm in the upper 60's. In fact, the temperatures shouldn't fall much at all through the game thanks to strong southwesterly winds. Those winds will occasionally gust upwards of 25-35 MPH. And, due to Wrigley Field's orientation, those winds will help fly balls carry on Friday, which could support more home runs and create issues for outfielders.

For Saturday's game, temperatures will be noticeably cooler in the middle 50's around first pitch. They will dip into the low 50's by the time the game ends. Skies will be mostly cloudy throughout the game with a 30% chance of showers. Any rain that may fall will be light and scattered in nature, but there certainly is a chance of some shower activity. Sunday's game will be entirely dry under a partly cloudy sky. Temperatures will be jacket-worthy in the low 50's at first pitch. By the game's end, temperatures will be in the upper 40's. GO CUBS GO!
