Find out how weather could impact your fantasy baseball success in this game. Introducing our new home run index factor...

Based on wind, humidity, ballpark and other proprietary factors, we currently predict 1.5x (50%) more home runs today compared to the average game. That's a big boost in HRs, plan accordingly.

More about Nationals Park

Weather-wise, Nationals Park is a fairly unremarkable park. Temperature, wind, humidity are all fairly neutral. The park is also pretty much at sea level so nothing to note there either. So, while D.C. has its fair share of windy and rainy days, it doesn't affect game play as much as other parks. Rather, the outfield dimensions seem to be the biggest contributing factor to its top 10 ranking in runs scored.

More specifically, balls hit from left center to right center stand a better chance of leaving the park due to the cozier dimensions. Even the 16-foot wall in right can't neutralize the nearly perfectly straight wall from the right field line to center. Bottom line, give weather a look if you have rostered players at Nationals Park but don't worry too much about it.

Below are the average temperature, humidity, rain, wind and wind direction for each month of the season (Nationals home games only). All the data is for the 2024 campaign and will be updated as the season progresses.

Keep these trends in mind before setting your lineup (particularly important for weekly lock fantasy leagues where it's difficult to predict the weather in a few days).
