Baseball Championship Series Forecasts
State College, Pa. — 15 October 2009 — AccuWeather.com’s reports cold and windy conditions are likely to dampen the first two games of the American League Championship Series in New York this weekend.
Rain and drizzle will be in the New York metro area most of the day on Friday before the Angels and the Yankees meet for Game 1. Temperatures will be in the low 40s by the scheduled game time, but with the moisture and winds ranging from 20 to 25 mph, RealFeel Temperatures are expected to be in the mid-20s.
Although the winds will lessen, rain and temperatures in the low 40s are again likely on Saturday, allowing for the RealFeel Temperatures to rise into the upper 30s for Game 2.
Meanwhile, Los Angeles will host both of its teams’ match-ups with excellent baseball weather for this time of year and Philadelphia will have minor weather-related concerns.
Tonight’s National League Championship Series contest in Los Angeles between the Dodgers and Phillies will start with clear skies and temperatures in the middle to upper 60s. It will be sunny for Game 2 on Friday afternoon and temperatures will be in the upper 80s when the first pitch is delivered.
When the teams travel to Philadelphia on Sunday for Game 3, evening skies in the area are forecast to be mostly cloudy with temperatures in the 40s. However, a bit of rain is possible.
Looking again at the ALCS when the Yankees visit the Angels, weather is not expected to be a factor. Mostly cloudy skies in Anaheim, Calif., for Game 3 on Monday will clear by Tuesday evening for Game 4. Moderate temperatures will be present for both games.
