CLEVELAND (AP) — There is a chance of rain in the late innings of World Series Game 7 at Cleveland’s Progressive Field.
Unseasonably warm temperatures in the upper 60s or low 70s are forecast for Wednesday night. The chance of rain increases from 19 percent at 8 p.m. to 49 to 55 percent at 11 p.m., Eastern (Cleveland) time, according to AccuWeather.
AccuWeather senior meteorologist Brian Wimer says in a statement: “While a brief shower cannot be ruled out during Wednesday evening, if Game 7 runs late or goes into extra innings, then the chance of drenching rain will increase.”
Major League Baseball announced late Tuesday it was moving up the start time by 8 minutes to 7 p.m. Central time.
Last week, the start of Game 2 was moved up by 1 hour to 7:08 p.m. Easterm Light rain started in the eighth inning, and heavy rain hit shortly after the final out at about 11:15 p.m.
