The Philadelphia Phillies advanced to the World Series by winning Game 5 of the National League Championship Series against the San Diego Padres in the middle of some rainy conditions last week.
The first two games of the Fall Classic against the Houston Astros will be on Friday and Saturday.
The two teams will travel on Sunday to play in Philadelphia from Monday through Wednesday.
Wednesday’s game, of course, will only be played if necessary.
Technology now allows people to have an idea of the weather forecast a few days in advance, which is extremely useful for baseball.
Those three games in Philadelphia could be a bit wet.

Phillies Fans Would Probably Be Ok With Some Rain
There is a 60 percent chance of rain on Monday, which is not ideal for a stadium that has no roof.
Minute Maid Park has a roof, but Citizens Bank Park does not.
Tuesday could have some rain, too, as the weather forecast says that there are 50 percent probabilities.
That could be problematic in the event that it lasts for a few hours and could potentially force the league to postpone a game.
If it’s just light rain, though, the Phillies probably don’t have many issues.
Rain or not, the Phillies will need to take the whole three games at home, or at least two of the three, if they want to have a chance at beating a team that is really, really good at home like the Astros.
Let’s see what the weather has in store for next week.
