Opening Day forecast: Partly cloudy, highs in the 60s


The nice end to the weekend will continue Monday for Cincinnati Reds Opening Day.

The first pitch forecast for the Reds opener is partly cloudy and warm with temperatures in the upper 60s, Storm Center 7 Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs said.

Overnight tonight skies will be clear and quiet with temperatures falling through the 40s, then into the low to mid 30s for a cold start on Monday.

However, a southerly breeze and sun will raise temperatures for a nice start to the Reds season as they take on the St. Louis Cardinals. Game time 4:10 p.m. at the Great American Ballpark.

The last play forecast is: Scattered clouds with temperatures still in the 60s, Vrydaghs said.

Temperatures Monday night fall into the upper 40s.

"A few morning sprinkles are possible" on Tuesday, Vrydaghs said, which will be partly cloudy, breezy and warm the rest of the day with highs reaching the mid 60s.

Scattered showers are possible Wednesday, which will be mostly cloudy with highs in the upper 50s, Vrydaghs said.

Showers and thunderstorms are possible Thursday, with high temperatures expected to reach the mid to low 60s.
