With a cold front stretched nearby, widely scattered tstorms will be found across the Northeast. Not a PPD concern but the radar will have to be watched for a possible delay that could impact the SP:
Will have to watch everyone’s favorite offensive park as a few tstorms could fire around Coors this evening:
Should not be a PPD threat but as I always write, Coors is THE hardest park to forecast for in all of MLB and every year, 1 or 2 games completely shocks me in Coors. Will have to watch closely.

******Note: I use dewpoints as they are a much more precise way than using % relatively humidity to measure the amount of moisture in the air and affect air density. Simply put, the higher up you are in the atmosphere (COL), the warmer it is and/or the higher the dewpoint, the less dense air is. The less dense air is, the further a batted or throw ball can travel, the less a breaking ball will break and the faster a fastball can travel. Generally, dewpoints above 65 are considered humid and help the ball carry well. *******
