After a disappointing weekend in Queens, the Philadelphia Phillies head home to host the Texas Rangers of the American League West for a two-game set.

It’s their first time meeting since May 2017, at the Rangers’ old ballpark, but thanks to the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, the two teams won’t go so long between matchups in the future. Starting next season, five games will be reallocated from each division rival to interleague play, ensuring that every team plays at least one series against every team in the opposing league.

If you’re planning to go to either game, don’t let the fickle spring weather get the best of you. Here’s the weather forecast for this series:

Philadelphia forecast for May 3

Tuesday is shaping up to be a beautiful day, with sunshine and temperatures hitting mid-70s by early afternoon. It’ll still be beautiful when first pitch rolls around at 6:45, with a projected forecast of 69 degrees and only intermittent clouds. However, temps will drop as the night goes on, and there’s a chance of showers at 11 PM, so if you’re heading to CBP, bring a jacket.

Philadelphia forecast for May 4

The forecast is even warmer for Wednesday night’s game, with partly-sunny skies at 71 degrees. While the temperature will drop steadily to 60 degrees by 11 PM and get cloudier as the night goes on, there’s a very low chance of rain.
