    The College World Series is underway in Omaha after an opening weekend of severe weather. Friday night, winds were as high as 70 mph as thunderstorms brought hail and heavy rain through the area. Opening ceremonies were shortened as a result of the weather.

    Tuesday afternoon should be similar to Monday afternoon for North Carolina versus LSU. The daytime will see mostly sun and temperatures in the mid-80s. The 7 p.m. CDT matchup between NC State and UCLA will see partial clouds and temperatures in the 70s. Temperatures will again drop into the 60s overnight.

    With sunny skies and higher temperatures, it will be important for players and fans alike to stay hydrated throughout the game. Sunscreen will also be necessary as limited cloud cover during peak UV hours can lead to sunburns in a short amount of time.

    Conditions will remain mostly similar for Wednesday, with scattered thunderstorms possible for the afternoon and evening hours. Temperatures will remain in the mid-80s, and skies will generally be partly cloudy.

    Temperatures will rise a bit into the upper 80s with more humidity and continuing chances of showers and thunderstorms for Thursday and Friday.

    The weekend will heat up into the lower 90s with a mix of clouds and sun for the afternoon games. Scattered showers and thunderstorms could pop up throughout the afternoon into the evening.

    The chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms for the end of the week could cause game delays. Games 13 and 14, scheduled for Saturday, may not be necessary depending on the outcomes of the match ups to start the week.
