Right now, the weather forecast for Opening Day at the K is looking a little shaky. Cold, we can probably, no definitely handle. But cold and rain won't be fun.

Weather Channel: A forecast of 51 degrees and a 50% chance of rain for 3:00 PM in Kansas City.

Accuweather: 55 degrees, with 97% cloud cover and between a 50-60% chance of rain.

NBC Action News - "KC's Most Accurate Forecast": 52 degrees, with a 40% chance of rain.

In a special twist, there is no traditional off-day scheduled for the day after this year. That off-day was used as a placeholder for an Opening Day rainout. That won't be an option this year.

Dayton's farm system is so powerful that it doubles as a fertility goddess, beckoning the sky to rain. The system is THAT GOOD.
