Tiger bats have been cold of late but temperatures promise to be even colder for the first game of the World Series, which might be in Detroit Wednesday.
If the Tigers triumph over the Red Sox this weekend, they can expect to play in temperatures that will only make it into the 40s, according to the National Weather Service in White Lake Township.
“We have a cold front moving in on Tuesday which will drop Sunday and Monday temperatures down from the 50s into the upper 40s,” said meteorologist Sara Schultz. “And night time lows will be even colder, into the lower 30s.”
There is also a chance of rain on the horizon, according to the NWS.
“We have showers coming in that will last most of the day Saturday and then into Sunday. We’ll see a rain break Sunday afternoon and then more rain on Monday.”
Tuesday should be dry but rain makes an encore performance on Wednesday.
“We’ll have a 30 percent chance of showers on Wednesday with a high of about 48,” Schultz said.
“The low Wednesday night will be 35. Time to build a fire in the fireplace.”
Friday night: Partly cloudy with 30 percent chance of light showers until 4 a.m. Lows of 43 to 47.
Saturday: Mostly cloudy with a 50 percent chance of rain. Highs of 51 to 55.
Saturday night: There is a 40 percent chance of rain with lows of 39 to 43 degrees.
Sunday: Mostly cloudy until 2 pm, then partly cloudy. Highs 53 to 57.
