The rain is coming to an end and sliding off to the east, leaving wet roads for the morning commute. Sunshine and 40s for this morning.

Increasing clouds this afternoon, with a high near 60. The wind will be noticeable today (and for the next 3 days) out of the west-northwest between 20-25 mph this afternoon, with a handful of gusts as strong as 35-40 mph.

I’m sure there have been worse Opening Days at Kauffman Stadium over the years, but Thursday will be an unpleasant day to be outdoors. Temperatures will struggle into the low-50s by game time, and a strong northwest wind with a 20 percent chance of rain will not be enjoyable. 

Temperatures trend down over the next few days before a freeze Saturday morning, but then a nice warmup for rest of the weekend, which features near-60 on Saturday afternoon and mid-70s for Sunday.  Chances of rain increase early next week.
