12:04 pm
showers. this batch of showers. the passing shower is not the kind of rain signature or the radar signature that in any way that they will impact the game other than the brief delay, but it will be cool and just 49 for that first pitch. and remember with that wind that west wind will be 10 to 25 miles an hour that feels a lot cooler than that. passing shower aside from that just a chilly day, but get ready that there is a chance that you'll see some snow tomorrow that we'll talk about that and record cold too. right now we'll send things back to the desk. >> all right, thank you very much. now the story will be inside that stadium to head back to citi field where otis livingston is now and even if you are inside that stadium that you will not be warm there. >> no, it is not warm at all and that it will be chilly like their home opener earlier this week. but the last time they would play on this field that you'll need to watch by and see them celebrate a world series title.
