The Eye in the Sky

DPB in evening glow

Have you ever thought about coming to a RoughRiders game but have a hard time getting off the fence because of the weather?  We all know that Texas weather can be a little unpredictable and sometimes it can be reassuring to just see whether it’s raining at the park, if the tarp is on the field or just how hot it is at Dr Pepper Ballpark.  Well fear not, loyal ‘Riders fans, because just in time for the off-season (yeah, maybe not the savviest timing…) we have been selected as an official weather-reporting station for WeatherBug.  As a result, we can now give fans access to the up-to-the-minute weather details, from the temperature, wind and even the time for sunset.

You can access the webpage for the new “Online Weather Center” right here.

As you can see on this page, there is even a live camera that regularly snaps a photo of the diamond below (unfortunately, I’m not sure it’s a suitable replacement for, for those of you looking for a workaround to watch games over the internet).  Save the page in your bookmarks and you’ll always be able to know the weather when you’re looking to visit us for a game.  You can also find the link on as one of the “‘Riders Links” below the video highlights and also as a link in the “News” section of the site.

Now, maybe if we all spend enough time staring at that webpage it will start to feel a little less like mid-July here in the Metroplex.

As always, thanks for reading!

– Alex
