    It looks like the weather will hold for Friday's World Series game, but there's a chance for showers late Saturday and rain Sunday.

    The Washington Nationals have World Series home games on Friday, Saturday and — if they haven't won it all yet — Sunday. Storm Team4 is monitoring the weather for the big games.

    The games begin just after 8 p.m. each day. Temperatures will be in the mid- to upper 50s, so it will be chilly at the ballpark.

    Friday is looking cloudy but dry for Game 3.

    Saturday, the day of Game 4, has the best chance for rain. Rain will move into the area later in the day, with showers possible in the evening. Pack the poncho and sweatshirt just in case!

    Our own Pat Collins is a news hero to many -- including the Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman. Collins spoke about their meeting at the Astros' Minute Maid Park and what it meant to him.

    The rain should be done by the time evening rolls around for a hypothetical Game 5 on Sunday. There could be up to half an inch of rain falling between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., but the storms should slowly dry out through the afternoon.

    Cool temperatures could affect the game. In colder weather, the ball doesn't travel as far. For every 10 degree drop in temperature, the ball travels 3 feet less.

    According to WTOP sports anchor Chris Cichon, the wet weather may actually favor the Nats because the Astros focus on spin rate of the ball, which could be difficult in wet conditions.
