Slight rain chances for Cleveland Indians vs. Pittsburgh Pirates: Weather forecast for Tuesday, Wednesday games

CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Cleveland Indians and Pittsburgh Pirates’ games at Progressive Field on Tuesday and Wednesday will skate by the largest rain chances of each day. For the most part, we should be able to play ball.

Tuesday, July 24, first pitch at 7:10 p.m.

Tuesday’s rain chances are higher than Wednesday’s, but are still very slight. At the very most, a stray shower will pop up within the first few innings, but that threat is only around 30 percent. Later in the evening, it drops to just 15 percent. The highest chances of the day peak around 2-5 p.m.

Regardless of whether rain drops fall, clouds should stay mostly cloudy.

But that won’t keep things from staying warm, as temperatures will range from the upper 70s at the beginning of the game to the low 70s later. With high dew points signaling lots of moisture in the air, that may feel a little sticky.

Wednesday, July 25, first pitch at 1:10 p.m.

I can’t rule out a stray storm for the Wednesday midafternoon game, but again the threat is very slight at 20 percent. That’s because all of the ingredients will be there to produce rain, but the low-pressure area expected to impact the area is very weak. If anything does pop up, it won’t be too long-lasting, so the Tribe should definitely be able to get the game in.

The heat and humidity will stick around, as temperatures reach the upper 70s to low 80s.
