This is the kind of series in which the Padres can pad their stats and tack on some wins, which they desperately need to do as they’re currently fourth in a hotly-contested division. They’re 2 1/2 games out of first, behind the unexpectedly-good Colorado Rockies, and of course, the first-place Los Angeles Dodgers and hot-on-their-heels San Francisco Giants.
While the weather in Cincinnati isn’t nearly as reliable or warm as back home in San Diego, it looks like clear skies throughout the series.
Here’s the full Padres-Reds forecast…
Cincinnati forecast for April 26: FROST ADVISORY
The Padres and Reds kick off the series at 6:40 PM ET on Tuesday, and if you’ve followed the team from the west coast, bundle up. While it’s going to be in the mid-50s at game-time, temps will drop to mid-40s by midnight. Hopefully, the game doesn’t go into extras, as there’s a Frost Advisory in effect starting late Tuesday night, until mid-morning on Wednesday.
Cincinnati forecast for April 27
The Frost Advisory is only in effect until 9 AM on Wednesday, and then it looks to be a gorgeous day in Cincy, with sunshine and temperatures reaching the low 60s.
Game 2 is another 6:40 PM ET start, but the temps will be a bit warmer. The forecast has 60 degrees at first pitch, but back down to the high 40s by 11 PM.
Cincinnati forecast for April 28
The final game of the series is a day game, or if you’re watching at home in San Diego, a breakfast-time game. First pitch is as 12:35 PM ET.
There’s minimal chance of rain, but the forecast is estimating a mostly cloudy Thursday afternoon and temperatures in the low 50s. Could be worse, could be better.
