BOSTON (CBS) — Boston is once again at the center of the sports universe for the next few nights and the good news is Mother Nature will not interfere in a major way.
Check: Latest Conditions
We have been lucky…scratch that…REAL lucky throughout the MLB playoffs and NFL season so far, nearly every game, day or night, has been downright comfortable to attend.
You never know what you might get playing baseball in late October in Boston…imagine if the World Series was in Boston two years ago during the infamous “Snowtober”…or last year when Hurricane Sandy was lashing our coastline. I don’t want to say it was a “good thing” the Sox were out of the playoffs the last two years, but it sure would have been challenging to deal with those two historic storms.
Thankfully this year is an entirely different story. No major storms, no significant wind, rain, or cold in the forecast for the next few nights.
Here is the forecast breakdown:
Clearing skies, light wind, chilly…around 48 degrees at game time and dropping back just a few degrees during the game.
Thursday night, 5 -7 p.m., Trick or Treat:
Can’t forget about trick or treating…for many towns this will be the first year since 2010 that we actually can have Halloween on the 31st. Thanks to “Snowtober” and Sandy, Halloween has been delayed by as much as a week in many towns over the last two years. This Thursday evening will be fairly mild, around 58 degrees at 5 p.m. and temperatures will not drop off more than a degree or two by 7 p.m. Skies will be mainly cloudy and there is a slight risk of a few raindrops, especially north and west of Boston. It will also be fairly windy, 10-20mph out of the southwest.
Thursday night, 8 p.m., Fenway Park:
Let’s hope the Sox take care of business Wednesday night and this forecast becomes a moot point…but, just in case…
Mainly cloudy and breezy, slight risk of a passing shower…Mild, mid-to-upper 50s all game…Winds gusty out of the southwest 10-20mph+ (blowing out toward centerfield).
Happy Halloween and Go Sox!
