Fantasy semi-finals week is upon us (unless you are in the cruel league that counts week 17) and it is do or die on your lineup decisions. Or maybe you are already out and are planning on wagering this week to keep some skin in the game. Either way you'll want to check in on the weather conditions.

Snow and some wind looks to be possible in a couple of spots, but by and large things look fairly calm for mid December. Take a look at the map for forecased game conditions. And as always check in with me (@stephenuzick) on Twitter on Sunday morning for the latest forecast updated for any trouble spots.

With no game on Monday, the Astros are rested and back in action Tuesday night at Minute Maid against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Luis Garcia (13-8, 3.90 ERA) will make the start for Houston, with Zach Davies (2-4, 4.03 ERA) pitching for the D-Backs. Lance McCullers was originally scheduled to pitch, but was scratched due to an "illness."


Magic number: 2

The Astros currently sit atop the AL sporting a 101-53 record, 6.5 games ahead of the 94-59 New York Yankees. So the Astros could clinch the AL on Tuesday with a win over the Diamondbacks, and a Yankees loss. The Yankees face the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night. The Yankees are 1.5 run underdogs according to online betting sites.

The Astros can also clinch by winning their next two games, regardless of what happens with the Yankees. Both the Yankees and the Astros are playing well currently, as both clubs have won 7 of their last 10 games.

With the Yankees game starting about an hour before the Astros take on the Diamondbacks, the Astros may know the results of Yankees-Blue Jays while they're trying to finish off the D-Backs. So be sure to watch tonight's Astros game because we could see some fun celebrations if the Astros manage to win and the Yankees fall to Toronto.
