Opening Day Forecast: Dry for Most Games, Showers for Others

Monday is Opening Day for many major league baseball teams across the country with rain threatening to dampen some of the first action.

In large, many games across the country on Monday will feature dry conditions, good for both the players and the fans.

However, this will not be the case for every game.

After one of the coldest winters on record across the Northeast, dry and mild weather will greet those at the ballpark on Monday.

This includes games being held in New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.

The same can also be said for Monday afternoon's game in Detroit, although fans farther south in Cincinnati may experience a brief shower or thunderstorm.

The Kansas City Royals and the Oakland Athletics may have the most unsettled weather out of all of Monday's games as showers are forecast to dampen each city.

Neither game is expected to be a washout, but fans attending the games may want to take a poncho with them for when the showers move through.

Fortunately for those in Oakland, the final pitch in Monday night's game should occur before the steadiest rain moves in during the overnight hours.
