Original post follows:

Well, last night was quite the evening. Nearly three hours worth of delays, but it was all worth it since they got the entire game in and Derek Jeter made history. Today's game won't have nearly as much drama, but the Yankees still haven't clinched anything yet, and are battling for homefield advantage throughout the playoffs. There should be a big crowd in the house, so there are probably some people wondering about how the weather will impact the game.

Here is what Steve from has to say about the lingering rain in the area. Everyone should remember to check out Steve's great website, which provides much more detailed forecasts than we have here. He also has a blossoming consulting service for small businesses. Definitely check that out if the weather conditions affect your business. Without further ado, here is Steve with Saturday's Yankee Stadium weather forecast:
The coastal low will slowly exit the region this afternoon with overcast skies and a few lingering showers. Drier conditions can be expected as the game progresses. Winds will back to the north around 10 to 15 mph. Temperatures will range from the mid to upper 60’s through the game.

Game Delay Potential:
Moderate: Showers will linger through the start of the game with a potential for a delay of the start of the game.

Game Postponement:
Low: The showers will become light and decrease in coverage through the game. With drier conditions setting in, I do not expect a postponement.

Series versus O’s: On Sunday, high pressure will take hold with clearing skies, a northwest wind around 5 to 10 mph, and temperatures in the mid 70’s through the game.

Rest of the Home Stand: Strong high pressure will take hold by Sunday night and remain in control through Wednesday. Optimal playing conditions are expected for the remainder of the home stand.
