Due to the impending storm, Saturday’s game has been postponed. While the Yankees themselves might not be strong contenders for the playoffs, the Diamondbacks are actively pursuing an NL wild-card spot. Consequently, the postponed game has been rescheduled for Monday at 1:05 p.m. Fans who held tickets for Saturday’s game are welcome to use them for entry on Monday, with gates opening at noon.

Sunday’s outlook doesn’t appear much better. The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for the Bronx, anticipating showers and the potential for a thunderstorm with a high temperature near 64 degrees. Northeast winds ranging from 14 to 17 mph, gusting up to 28 mph, are expected. There’s an 80% chance of precipitation, with new rainfall amounts projected between a quarter and half an inch.

In essence, Tropical Storm Ophelia has thrown a curveball into the Yankees’ weekend plans, disrupting their series against the Diamondbacks and causing uncertainty about the fate of Sunday’s game due to the storm’s looming impact on the region.
