World Series Weather at Target Field

As the Twins were building Target Field one of the most talked about topics was the Twins move back to outdoor baseball and how weather could impact that shift.  This season was great for weather in the Twin Cities.  Even when it did rain the field dried fast enough to play games.  The Twins even dodged some rain storms during the season by getting games completed right in the nick of time.

If the Twins had qualified for the World Series this weekend would have marked the first outdoor World Series games in Minnesota since October, 1965.

Here is a break-down of the weather for this weekend as it would have corresponded to the games if they would have taken place at Target Field

Saturday Game 3 of the World Series 
First Pitch (6:00 PM)
Temperature: 48 degrees F
Feels like: 44 degrees F
Chance of Precipitation: 0%
Wind: 8 mph NNE

End of Game (9-10:00 PM)
Temperature: 43-42 degrees F
Feels like: 37-35 degrees F 
Wind: 9 mph ENE

Sunday Game 4 of the World Series
First Pitch (7:20 PM)
Temperature: 45 degrees F
Feels like: 40 degrees F 
Chance of Precipitation: 0%
Wind: 8 mph E

End of Game (10:30-11:30 PM)
Temperature: 41-40 degrees F
Feels like: 34-33 degrees F 
Wind: 9 mph SE

Monday Game 5 of the World Series
First Pitch (7:00 PM)
Temperature: 44 degrees F
Feels like: 39 degrees F 
Chance of Precipitation: 0%
Wind: 4 mph SSE

End of Game (10-11:00 PM)
Temperature: 39-37 degrees F
Feels like: 35-34 degrees F 
Wind: 4 mph SSE

Overall, it would have been a very brisk three games at Target Field.  The good news would have been that the wind seems to be minimum after the strong winds that have swept through the Mid-West in recent days.  There also looks like there would be almost no chance of precipitation.  

Fans from throughout Twins Territory could have warmed up Target Field with their cheers and your choice of beverage, but that dream will have to wait for another year and another World Series.

Have a safe and happy Halloween weekend!
