The skies above Boston are expected to clear on Sunday afternoon just in time for the first pitch to be thrown at Fenway Park.

A cold front will cross the region Saturday night, bringing scattered showers but very little rain.  It appears the front will move far enough south on Sunday so that skies should at least partially clear. Any threat of rain will have ended by the 4 p.m. game start.  Temperatures will be in the lower 60s, but falling into the 50s throughout the game.

The map below from the GFS shows the showers just clearing the coastline Sunday evening.

If you are headed to Fenway, take a jacket or sweater as it will feel chilly in the night air.  Winds will be light and northerly Sunday evening.  

If the Sox play game four on Monday, the weather looks perfect for an evening game.  It will be crystal clear and very dry.  Highs during Monday afternoon will only reach the upper 50s.  This means that, as temperatures fall during a hypothetical Monday game, it will feel quite cool by the ninth inning. Overnight lows on Monday will dip into the 40s.

The sun sets around 6:10 in the evening, meaning the lights will go on Sunday about halfway through the game. If there’s a game 4 on Monday, the stadium will be lit up throughout the entire game.

Not going to any of the games this weekend or on Columbus Day, but want to get outside? Monday is clearly the better of the two days, with plenty of sunshine and seasonably cool temperatures.
