Forecasters are increasingly confident that storms – some possibly severe – will kick off the College World Series.
The National Weather Service and AccuWeather agree: Intermittent storms are likely from now through Sunday. There also will be some dry periods, offering the hope that games, or at least some of them, will play as scheduled.
Tom Kines, meteorologist for AccuWeather, The World-Herald's private weather consultant, said storms could become severe Friday and perhaps again on Sunday.
The Saturday storms, he said, may not be as severe. But some forecast models hint at severe storms on Saturday as well.
Each day's weather could affect the next day's, so it will be wise to monitor the forecast. Rick Chermok, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service, said this weekend's forecast is simply not what you want to see for the start of the College World Series.
