DOWNTOWN — Cubs fans can expect rain-free but chilly games when the team plays at home in the World Series this weekend.
The games at home start about 7 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The games to see at Wrigley Field — if you can even afford the pricey tickets — would probably be on Friday and Saturday because the weather will be a bit warmer, said AccuWeather meteorologist Tom Kines (a Cleveland Indians fan, poor guy).
Friday will see evening temperatures in the upper 50s with a wind of 10-20 mph, Kines said, and the game shouldn't see any rain. It'll be a "relatively mild evening," he said.
Saturday will also be breezy, with winds of 15-25 mph possible, Kines said. Temperatures during the evening should be in the 60s.
"For late October, that's pretty good," Kines said. "The winds on Friday evening, Saturday evening, with winds being either out of the south or southwest, that's going to be blowing out of the stadium. The fly balls will carry a little bit farther on those evenings."
Sunday will be chillier, with temperatures in the lower 50s and a wind of 6-12 mph, Kines said.
The Cubs and Wrigley Field are 95 percent owned by an entity controlled by a trust established for the benefit of the family of Joe Ricketts, owner and CEO of DNAinfo.com. Joe Ricketts has no direct involvement in the management of the iconic team.
