The ALCS matchup with the Houston Astros is a close race between the New York Yankees and the Cleveland Guardians. Game 1 was won by the Yankees,
while Game 2 was tied thanks to the Guardians. The Guardians subsequently defeated New York in Game 3, and in Game 4 New York once more tied the series.
The winner of Monday's Game 5 will advance to the ALCS, but eager spectators may have to wait even longer owing to anticipated showers in the NYC Metro Area.
The game is likely to be affected by weather at some point tonight, according to a tweet from New York Metro Weather. "Quick Update: No major changes to the thought process
in regards to the forecast this evening. All model data continues to show a batch of showers and storms moving through the NYC Metro between 7-9pm."
Since there is no official word on how the weather may affect the game, it may start when scheduled. But it can also lead to a postponement or cancellation, which would not be desirable.
