Well folks, since it isn't raining yet and it is 8 AM, the idea of an early cancellation by the Yankees is pretty much out of the picture. The forecast still hasn't improved much, but since the rain isn't going to really roll in until later, the game will probably be started and I would assume finished. Click on the radar on the right hand side of the page for a live look at the precipitation in the area.
The comfort level for this game is going to be about as low as it can be for a Yankee game. Wear layers and try to bring something water resistant for the top layer. Obvious stuff, but if you paid a bunch of money for tickets to the final opening day in the current Yankee Stadium you are going to want to be able to at least somewhat enjoy the game.
Tuesday still looks to be warmer, but the forecast has gotten rainier for Tuesday as well. Luckily, later in the week things clear out, so this first game should be the only one with weather concerns.
Enjoy the game, people - I'll be at work watching it on a 3 inch cell phone screen.
and of course I'll be...
ANTI RAIN DANCE!
HYAAAH HYOOOAH HYAAAH HYOOOA!
