The annual NCAA Men’s College World Series is wrapping up in Omaha–the last time that the games are being played at the venerable Rosenblatt Stadium.

This new site will be the home of the CWS for the next 25 years, at least. Since the CWS is the only sports championship that does NOT move from year to year, the weather and climate of Omaha are crucial to the games. On today’s episode of Weather Break, Dr. Jon Schrage takes a look at some of the surprising ways in which the meteorology and climatology of Omaha are related to this annual celebration.
