For openers (again), looks goods so far (again)

7

April

UPDATE, 2:30: It's rained again, and stopped again, and that's supposed to be the end of it. So, soon, it should finally be time to play ball.

UPDATE, 2:01: Looks like they're good to go.

UPDATE, 1:55: The rain is letting up and the Rays are preparing for batting practice.
 
UPDATE,1:35: Uh-oh, it's raining, but not enough - yet - to disrupt Boston's batting practice.

UPDATE, 12:25
: Just got set up at Fenway, the sun (bright orb? hadn't see it for a few days) has been in and out, and the sense is that the game will be played. But there are clouds all around, and an odd sight on the field - the tarp is off, but folded behind the infield, and a dozen members of the grounds crew are just standing therem at the ready, in case it does start to rain again.

The updated National Weather Sevice forecast isn't much different:

THIS AFTERNOON...PARTLY SUNNY WITH A 40 PERCENT CHANCE OF
SHOWERS. HIGHS IN THE LOWER 50S. SOUTHWEST WINDS 15 TO 20 MPH.

TONIGHT...MOSTLY CLOUDY. LOWS IN THE MID 30S. SOUTHWEST WINDS
15 TO 20 MPH.

8:35: Well, let's try this again. Our scientific methods - not to be confused with Bay News 9's Klystron 9's gizmos - are again in play, as the opening of the hotel room curtains reveals wet streets but no rain falling, and a cloud cover that seems lighter than Monday allowing for slightly brighter skies.

 But this is Boston, so a lot can happen and a lot can change between now and the schedueld 4:06 p.m. first pitch.

Here's the latest advisory from the National Weather Service:

TODAY...MOSTLY CLOUDY. A CHANCE OF SHOWERS...MAINLY THIS
MORNING. HIGHS IN THE LOWER 50S. SOUTHWEST WINDS 15 TO 20 MPH.
GUSTS UP TO 30 MPH THIS AFTERNOON. CHANCE OF RAIN 40 PERCENT.

TONIGHT...MOSTLY CLOUDY. LOWS IN THE MID 30S. SOUTHWEST WINDS
15 TO 20 MPH.
