MLB Forecast- June 13, 2017

The Brewers and Cardinals will play a DH in St. Louis today to highlight 16 MLB games.  Game 1 is at 220 PM and is the only afternoon game on the schedule today.  Weather could be a factor across much of the Eastern and Central US to thanks to a subtropical air mass that will fire off showers and thunderstorms.  There is 1 game at 22o PM, 8 games at 7 PM, 4 games at 8 PM, and 3 games at 10 PM.

General Overview

First, let’s start with the surface analysis across the Lower 48 as of 11 AM.  A frontal boundary is draped from Nebraska to Maine with an occlusion back into Montana and another boundary back into New Mexico.  Canadian high pressure is trying to establish itself to the North while the Bermuda high still wants its say across the S/E US.

There is a clear temperature divide east and south of this boundary and north and west of this boundary.  Temperatures across the South, Central, and East are in the low to mid 90’s while it is much cooler across the Western US.

Finally, here is the 18-hour simulated radar.  You can see the movement of storms is along the frontal boundaries in the surface chart above.  Boston and Minnesota are my two games to watch for trouble although showers are possible in New York, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Washington, and St. Louis as well.

Yesterday I went 2-14-2 with a sterling 2-7 record in Run Lines and a 0-7-2 record in O/U.  It just means I’m due.
