Opening Day Forecast

Spring is here, and the first pitch of the MLB is on the way. Even though spring has not cooperated with the calendar that will not stop the MLB from starting its season on Thursday. If you are going out to the games or patiently waiting at home for your favorite team to swing its season in the right direction, here at East Coast Weather Authority we have your Opening Day forecast for teams along the East Coast.

We will have a storm system that will move through the Ohio River Valley and has the likelihood of postponing the Detroit and Cincinnati games. Rain will try to move into the New York City area by gametime for the Mets, but should hold off until after the game. Also, a few showers could be an issue for the Braves as a cold front will be approaching and ahead of the cold front a few showers will want to pop up, possibly delaying the start. Otherwise, the rest of the games will have no issues starting on time as they will be left with sun and clouds and temperatures near average for the respective city. Enjoy Opening day and hope your team has plenty of success this season. Go White Sox!
