Yankees vs. Orioles Opening Day Weather Report - Special To NSI By Steve DiMartino Of

Since it was such a success on Friday, Steve from is back to give us another gameday forecast, this time for the 4:05 opening day tilt in Baltimore, MD, between the Orioles and the Yankees. A lot of Yankee fans are making the trek down to Baltimore and probably want to know if the game is going to happen, as plenty of rain is in the forecast. Here is what Steve has to say, exclusively for New Stadium Insider.
Looks like there could be a delay, but they'll get the game in. Here's the forecast:

The heaviest rainfall can be expected before the game as the cold front and developing low pressure system moves through Baltimore between 1 and 3 PM. Showers will linger over Baltimore from 3 to 6 PM as winds shift to the west around 10 to 20 mph with higher gusts. So although a delay will be possible, the worst of the rain will be over by the time the Yankees and O's take the field.

Temperatures will range from the 52 to 59. Temperatures will fall through the period of the game rather quickly into the mid and lower 50's.
So to recap. The heaviest rain will be done by game time, however showers will continue to be a threat through at least 6 PM. Clearing expected thereafter.

A delay in the game is possible, but of course these days MLB will play through anything to get a game in short of a tornado.
Considering the rare sell-out crowd that the Orioles will have at Camden Yards today, the game will probably happen - even if the weather is bad. After a long and exciting offseason, we are ready to embark on what should be a fun journey toward championship No. 27 in the Bronx. Stick with us for the ride!
