A rainy Sunday morning will hopefully clear out in time for the Orioles to host the New York Yankees for Game 1 of the American League Division Series between the two teams. A weekend chill will stick around, though.

The National Weather Service is forecasting rain for most of the day Sunday, but partly cloudy skies by game time at 6 p.m. Highs are expected only in the 50s on Sunday, with temperatures likely in the upper 40s for much of the game.

AccuWeather is predicting the rain to clear out around 7 p.m., while the Weather Channel expects a lingering chance of scattered showers until 9 p.m., but the bulk of the rain moving out by 5 p.m.

Monday, clear skies are expected for Game 2. Game time temperatures are expected in the lower 50s.

No significant winds are in the forecast for either game.

For the first game of the series at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday, the National Weather Service in New York is forecasting a chance of showers in the evening.

Of course, Orioles fans would likely take gusty winds and even freezing temperatures without complaint -- who would complain about Orioles baseball in October?
