Expected Weather Conditions For Yankees vs. Rays - Is Everyone Sick Of The Rain Yet?

At some point, we may have to start hoping for rain outs with how bad the Yankees have played. It started out looking like the Yankees would have a big home field advantage at their new home, but now they're only 6-5 in the new digs. Perhaps it will be good for them to get away and escape the frustrated New York fans, and the terrible New York weather.

As always Steve DiMartino of is on hand for the weather-related festivities. If you were paying attention to last night's forecast here on NSI, you would see that he pretty much nailed it, calling for showers late in the game, after 9:30 PM. Let's see what we have in store for the upcoming series against the Rays:
It's funny that after such a long dry spell, that the rain just won't stop. Well, when it rains it really rains!

The Bronx will remain dry through much of the game this evening, however an area of low pressure from the Ohio Valley will bring increasing clouds and scattered showers from 10 PM onward, so there is a threat for rain for the late innings. Most of the game tonight will remain dry though. Winds will veer from the northeast to southeast around 5 to 15 mph, gusting to 20 mph at times. Temperatures through game time will range from 60 to 64 degrees.

Tomorrow evening, a threat remains for scattered showers through the game. However, I do not expect wide spread rainfall so there is potential for dry conditions through the game. Winds will veer to the southwest around 10 to 20 mph. Temperatures through game time will range from 63 to 66 degrees.

Good luck!
It looks like conditions will be better than they were for the Red Sox series since it will be warm, and there really isn't the potential for a complete washout. Overall, this home stand has featured some of the worst weather at Yankee Stadium in recent memory. Thanks to everyone who has checked in and for helping to make us somewhat of a baseball weather authority. Of course, thanks to Steve from for making that happen. We don't expect to need Steve's services this much for the rest of the season, but when the weather warrants it, Steve will be back. Enjoy the games everyone!
