MLB Wednesday Forecast: Gloomy Weather Could Impact Games in Texas, Minnesota
Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports.
- Though the Weather Rating is popping off in Texas, so is the chance for bad weather ... potentially very bad.
- Though Minnesota doesn't have a risk of severe storms, widespread rain all day will linger into the evening, making a rainout a possibility.
There are many words that can be used to describe weather: nice, sunny, windy, rainy, crappy, raw, decent and inclement, to name a few. When words like severe, hail and tornado start getting tossed around … that’s not good.
Unfortunately, that’s the situation in Texas tonight. In fact, the next few days could feature some very strong storms anywhere from the midwest, south, to mid-Atlantic so be careful out there.
Highest Weather Ratings
- Angels at Rangers: 78
- Royals at White Sox: 55
Weather Ratings are a proprietary number created by FantasyLabs, which are on a 0-100 scale, with 100 being the best hitting atmosphere and 0 being the best pitching atmosphere. Weather Rating takes into account temperature, wind speed, wind direction, stadium elevation, humidity and atmospheric pressure.
The air in Texas is going to have that strange feeling to it. Heavy, moist and dangerous. Though it’ll be good for spanking homers, it may also bring severe weather to the ballpark. More on that at the bottom of this article.
To my surprise, the White Sox game also has favorable conditions for hitting. The temperatures will be in just the low 60s, while winds will be blowing in. The total has dropped from 9.5 to 9 since opening, but perhaps the weather isn’t quite as bad as it looks on paper.
