Milder Night Ahead for Game 5 of the 2015 World Series

Temperatures are expected to be about 5 to 10 degrees warmer in New York City for what could be the final game of the 2015 World Series between the Royals and the Mets.

The Kansas City Royals, which scored the tying run in the 9th inning in Game 1 and later won in extra innings, came back in Game 4 on Saturday night with three runs in the 8th inning to beat the New York Mets 5-3 and take a 3-1 series lead.

A win tomorrow for the Royals will clinch their first World Series Championship since 1985. A win for the Mets will force Game 6 in Kansas City on Tuesday night.

After temperatures were in the lower 50s for games 3 and 4 at Citi Field, a southwesterly wind flow will bring in milder air for Game 5.

According to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Michael LeSeney, "Temperatures will be right around 60 F at the start of the game before falling into the upper 50s by the end of the game."

While there will be the threat for a shower early on Sunday, there will not be a threat for any precipitation on Sunday night. Winds will be out of the southwest between 5 and 10 mph.

"Weather will not be a major factor in the game's outcome," LeSeney said.

The first pitch is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. EST.

If the series heads back to Kansas City on Tuesday night, a clear, mild and breezy night will be in store. Temperatures will be in the upper 60s with a south wind between 10 and 20 mph at the start of the game.
