Get the Diamond Dry ready: I think we're still going to play baseball tonight.
There still hasn't been any official announcement regarding tonight's game but since we're spending most of the day discussing it, I figured I might as well post an updated look at the forecast for tonight. Here's the hour-by-hour chance of rain, according to the Weather Channel:
|Hour||Chance of rain|
|11 pm||Not displayed|
Obviously, those numbers aren't very encouraging. For a bright side, though, take a look at the radar. The storm that appears to be our primary concern tonight is currently dumping rain on northern Arkansas. It's moving to the northeast (which is toward St. Louis), but if it stays on its current trajectory most of the storm and the heaviest rain will pass well east of Busch Stadium.
I'm not a meteorologist, but if I had to take a guess I'd say the two teams and MLB will find a big enough window to get tonight's game in.
