Can you believe it? We've had three straight days without a rain out (or snow out) in the Majors. That streak comes after having 22 games postponed in the season's first three and a half weeks. According to forecasts, the weekend is looking nice for the East and Midwest, but not so good for the West. It's raining in Los Angeles and tonight's Dodgers game with the Pirates could be postponed, a rarity for Dodger Stadium. The Angels also play at home this weekend.
Here's what the National Weather Service in Los Angeles is forecasting:
.TONIGHT...MOSTLY CLOUDY WITH SHOWERS LIKELY AND A SLIGHT CHANCE OF
THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH MIDNIGHT...THEN BECOMING PARTLY CLOUDY.
LOWS IN THE UPPER 40S TO MID 50S. CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION 70 PERCENT.
The Dodgers have a weather page set up on their Web site to provide the latest information about weather at the ballpark and to let fans know weather the next scheduled game will be played or postponed. I haven't found such a page for the Angels, but then again, who cares about the Angels?
There also the possibility of snow in the mountains in the City of Angels.
"RAINFALL ... COULD POSE A THREAT FOR SOME MUD AND DEBRIS FLOWS IN AND BELOW BURN AREAS. IN THE MOUNTAINS ABOVE 5000 TO 5500 FEET...SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS OF 5 TO 10 INCHES ARE EXPECTED WITH LOCALLY HIGHER TOTALS POSSIBLE."
