I typically don’t pay attention to weather forecasts because I feel that they’re usually wrong. Especially during the winter when the chance of a big snowstorm often turns into a bigger story than it should.

But I have tickets to the Orioles home opener against the Twins on Friday so I’ll be keeping a watchful eye on the weather. Unfortunately, early forecasts are showing a 70 percent chance of rain during the day.

Orioles home opener forecast

The last O’s game I attended started in a rain delay. It turned out to be the most memorable game I’ve ever attended. I’m hoping for similar results from the Birds on Friday.
