Baseballs appears in McCovey Cove ahead of All Star Game in San Francisco. Taken in 2007, but skies might look like this for tonight's ballgame.

Okay, pardon this interruption, but there looks like there is rain in the forecast for tonight's Game 7 between the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals as they will battle it out for entry into the 2012 World Series. 

I am by no means a meteorologist, but, thankfully I can read a map. 

According to, though it is not certain that precipitation will spread deep into San Francisco, there is rain heading south from Santa Rosa. 

There is rain east of San Francisco, but those conditions will not affect tonight's game. 

However, there looks to be rain inching closer into San Francisco from the north western part of the country. 

By 4:30 p.m. PT, the rainy conditions are still not over San Francisco, but the precipitation is already well within the southern part of Santa Rosa and they look like they will eventually create a delay at the start of the game. 

Game 7 is scheduled to start at 5 p.m. PT. MLB has already postponed a game due to the "chance of rain." They took the freedom to delay Game 4 of the ALCS between the New York Yankees and Detroit Tiger. At around 9 p.m. ET they called the game off despite there not being any rain falling on the field.

That same night, in the southern part of the country in St. Louis, the Cardinals had their game delayed three hours and thirty minutes just to get in the 2.1 innings of the remaining game. 

Weather has been critical, as you can see, in these League Championship Series. 

We will keep you posted with the weather for tonight's game. Check out the weather radar provided by The green "stuff" is rain. 

It is currently 56 degrees outside with 73 percent humidity.
