ALLENTOWN FRIDAY PREDICTION AND ODDS OF A RAIN DELAY


Recommended Posts

Seems like Allentown just can't catch a break anymore weather-wise. 50% chance of thunderstorms all evening.    Prediction of a Boston upset--also 50%.  1. BD 96.0 2. BAC 95.6  3. Bluecoats 94.7  4. Phantom 88.8  5. Mandarins 88.7 6.  BK 85.2. 7. Colts 85.0.

And, if memory serves, FRIDAYS in Allentown have a greater rain out rate than Saturdays…

based on past history the more people talk about the chance, the more likely it is to happen

I was almost in agreement with those selections until I got to the end. I’ll go Colts 86.25 and BK 85.5.

When I see rain potentially occurring at an undesirable time, I usually just have an “everything will be fine” attitude and never mention the possiblity, or barely in passing😂

I went in 2014 and Saturday was a nicer day than Friday. I think there was a rain delay Friday and then, the weather was good the rest of the night.  I seem to recall Saturday had a little rain but then it was a very nice night.

I was there in 1984 when they had a helicopter flying by to dry out the field.  That was a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence.  😂

86 finals got washed out. 87 DCA a monsoon...99 too, but they managed to get the show in. 87 prelims had a lot of rain, a lot of mud where there used to be grass after 23 corps...and finals wiped out.

 

93 rained on Cavies...04 i think Glassmen? I know 11 rained on and off a little on Saturday...and of course Friday in 18. i can't remember them all.

I remember the helicopter-drying of the field in 1984. Surreal.  Does Allentown have artificial turf now?
