KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The National Weather Service says it appears unlikely that rain in Kansas City will disrupt the first game of the World Series between the Kansas City Royals and New York Mets.

Meteorologist Mike July in Pleasant Hill, Missouri, says some drizzle might remain near the start of the evening game, but the system should move away shortly after the game begins.

After the game starts, there is a 50 percent chance of showers, but less than a tenth of an inch is forecast.

It will be chilly, with the high reaching 57 degrees before dropping to about 49 after sunset.
