The American League Championship Series continues tonight as the New York Yankees and Houston Astros meet in Game 4 at Yankee Stadium. Game 4 was supposed to be played last night, but it was postponed (and rightly so) when the huge coastal storm unloaded wave after wave of rain in the Tristate area.
The weather will be one of the main storylines again tonight. But do not worry, it's not like there's more rain in the forecast. Instead, it's the wind. A lot of wind. This means that there is some cold in the air in the Bronx.
The National Weather Service issued a wind advice:
WINDSHIELD IN EFFECT UNTIL 1
* WHAT … West winds with gusts of up to 80 km / h.
* WHERE … Entire area with three states.
* WHEN … Tonight until 6:00 pm EDT.
* IMPACT. .. Gusty winds can blow limbs, trees and power lines. Stray current failures are possible.
Here is the latest forecast from the National Meteorological Service:
20 percent rain probability. Mostly cloudy, with a high of about 58. breeze, with a west wind around 40 km / h, with gusts as high as 80 km / h.
Mostly cloudy, with a low of 47 breeze, with a west wind 14 to 21 miles per hour, with gusts of up to 32 miles per hour.
If you calculate, a temperature of 47 degrees with a wind of 20 miles per hour produces a wind cold of 39.7 degrees. So make sure you form a bundle when you go to the game tonight. Here's the ticket policy for Yankee Stadium Games 4 and 5, via Yankees PR:
