Game 3 of the World Series is scheduled to be played this evening, but it appears that weather may play a role in the contest.

With the series tied at 1-1, the game is pivotal in determining who will take home the season’s biggest prize.

Two games have been suspended by a full day this postseason, and both of them came in the series between the Guardians and the Yankees in the ALDS.

For the upcoming Game 3 between Houston and Philadelphia, the Astros are currently a market favorite around -140, while the Phillies are hovering around +115.

With all of this in mind, here is the updated forecast for the evening’s contest.

Weather Report For Astros vs. Phillies

The reports coming out of Philadelphia are not the most encouraging.

Per the Sports Insights weather report, there is a 30% chance of rain at Citizens Bank Park at 8 p.m. as the game is slated to begin, and it will raise up to 60% throughout the majority of the evening.

MLB makes it a priority to try and ensure that games are finished in the same evening if they are started, and delays are not looked upon favorably.

Wind will not be a major issue, as it is expected to remain stable around 5 mph throughout the evening.

The league is slated to issue an update on the status of the game around 5:30 p.m. ET.
