Good news for baseball fans headed to the second game of the World Series at Kauffman Stadium Wednesday evening: Predicted rain should hold off until late in the night.
“I don’t think they could expect better weather,” said Pamela Murray, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill. “It’s great weather for the game, especially if the precip stays out of area until the game is finished and everybody has gotten out of there.”
For most of Wednesday, the Kansas City area will have pleasant fall weather with afternoon temperatures reaching into the mid-70s.
Game-time temperatures are expected to start in the upper 60s to lower 70s and fall about 10 degrees throughout the game.

“It looks like the (storm) system is slowing down a little bit so we are not expecting precipitation to be a factor for the game,” Murray said.
For the Kansas City area, rain is not expected to fall until after midnight.
“If the game drags out until midnight or until a little bit past midnight, you might need a jacket,” she said. “A jacket would always be a good thing any way because it will get a little chilly for some people with those temperatures falling by the end of game time.”
Winds are expected to be relatively light — most likely 10 to 12 mph out of the south.
