Weather Could Be A Problem In Game 1

Inclement weather could once again be a huge factor in the post-season, as tonight's forecast for the St. Louis area could cause trouble for Game 1 of the World Series.

There's currently light rain in St. Louis only five hours before game-time, and the Weather Underground predicts a 40% chance of rain tonight. The temperatures will be in the 40's with a low of 37, with wind gusts of up to 29 mph possible.

Any type of delay could cause havoc with both team's post-season rotations, especially if it resembles Game 1 of the ALDS between the Detroit Tigers and the New York Yankees, where both teams lost the services of their aces after only a few innings work.

The forecast for the rest of the week in St. Louis is much better, as there is only a 10% chance of rain on Thursday, but wind gusts could stay in the 20's all week.
