Detroit weather: Tigers Opening Day forecast

New, 3 comments

It'll be a cool but clear day as Detroit welcomes in a new baseball season.

Great news, Tigers fans! You're in for a dry, though a bit cool, Opening Day in Detroit.

According to Weather Underground, the chance of rain is 0 percent for the entire day. But you might want to dress in layers. When gates at Comerica Park open at 10:30 a.m., temperatures are expected to be in the low 30s. A clear sky will allow the sun to heat things up as the day progresses, and game time temperatures should be around 49-50 degrees. If you're a yooper in the city, that's probably shorts and T-shirt weather. Otherwise it may be a bit on the brisk side. Temps will peak a few degrees above 50 by the end of the game before cooling off again. Winds are forecast to be blowing in from right field at about 10 mph.

Finally, remember to get to the ballpark early, as Comerica Park will be using metal detectors this year so lines may be a little slower than normal for fans entering the stadium.

The first pitch is set for 1:08 p.m.
