Opening Day weather

The weather isn’t looking good for the Yankees game in Baltimore. It’s raining there now, and there’s an 80% chance of rain and thunderstorms for this afternoon. With about 2 1/2 hours to go before game time, it’s 56 degrees and raining. *sigh*

I see that the Red Sox/Rays game has already been postponed because of heavy rain and high winds. And the White Sox/Royals opener has been postponed because of…snow?!? Doesn’t Mother Nature know it’s baseball season??

On the other hand, it’s partly sunny and 88 degrees near Dolphin Stadium, with no rain (or snow!) in the forecast. So things are looking good for the Nationals/Marlins game!

EDIT: I just looked out my office window, and the sun is out! Mind you, I’m near DC rather than near Baltimore, so the weather conditions here aren’t necessarily the same as the weather conditions at Oriole Park. But the fact that the sun has come out here is a bit encouraging…maybe the clouds will break up in Baltimore too…at least those over Oriole Park……

 EDIT: I just checked the radar weather map, and it looks like the rain has moved out of the downtown Baltimore area. Excellent! It’s partly cloudy and 90 degrees near Dolphin Stadium. So it looks like both of my games today are a go.

PLAY BALL!!

    I hope that game’s a go! A rainout on Opening Day would be pretty miserable…though not as bad as a snowout…..

    Do you remember reading about the Indians series in 2007 (I think they were playing the Angels) that had to be moved to Milwaukee because of snow in Cleveland? I don’t know if it’s global warming or what, but somebody needs to tell Mother Nature it’s spring!

    Yup, Jane…it was ugly. I consumed a considerable amount of chocolate afterward, which helped ease the pain only slightly…..
    Jason, I do remember a playoff series having to be moved because of snow, though I’d forgotten which teams were involved. It was crazy!
