Back to 2004
Posted by Chris Lambert
Ready for game 1 tonight? The match-up in the series is the same as '04 and the weather at Fenway Park looks similar to that of game 1 and 2 of 2004. Hopefully, the outcome to those two games look similar too!
Not only do we have the cooler weather in place today, we'll also track a bit of rain across the area this afternoon. The best chance of a steady rain later today is across southeast Mass, especially around Buzzards Bay the Cape and Islands. Even a touch of rain or sprinkles mid to late afternoon find their way close to the Mass Pike and the city of Boston, although rain amounts remain light. Highs only manage to reach the low to mid 50s, and where in does rain this afternoon, temps fall back into the mid 40s across SE Mass.
So what about the Sox game? If you're heading into Fenway around 5:00 or 6:00PM, there still could be a shower or a few sprinkles around, but the chance for those rain drops really lower by first pitch as mostly cloudy skies prevail, and temps hover in the mid to upper 40s for the start of the game, and end in the lower to middle 40s by the 9th.
Tomorrow afternoon, there's no rain chance, but cool weather continues to be the theme, and temps at the Fens will be chilly. Game 2 starts in the mid 40s, drops to the lower 40s. Add in a gusty wind, and wind chill factors run into the 30s!
Cooler weather rules from here on out, but so does mainly dry weather. Aside from that bit of rain today (mainly south), and a sprinkle or brief passing shower early Sunday, we're dry through the weekend, into early next week.
