Baseball Weather: Dry and Warm in Philadelphia

As the Major League Baseball playoffs continue today in Philadelphia, will baseball fans need a warm coat to stay warm or will a long-sleeved shirt do the trick?
Fortunately, high pressure will rule the weather this evening for Game 6 of the National League Championships matchup between the Giants and the Phillies at Lincoln Financial Field. Temperatures will get a nice boost thanks to southwesterly winds.
Mostly sunny skies will become partly cloudy with readings in the comfortable lower to middle 60s just before the game with the mercury only dropping a few degrees as more clouds build during the game. Fans won`t need a rain jacket or umbrella as the weather will remain dry.
