ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Everyone wants in on the Cardinals home opener against Cincinnati Monday -- including Mother Nature, it would seem. And her first pitch is, of course, a curve ball.

Clouds overnight will start to generate steady rain toward sunrise with lows in the mid 40s. Unfortunately, they'll keep doing that all morning into early afternoon, allowing for highs not much warmer than the upper 40s. By mid-to-late afternoon, precipitation should become spotty and then push off to the east altogether.

This means at game time against the Reds we should look for scattered showers with temperatures near 49. By late afternoon, the rain should wind down to scattered sprinkles or a stray shower before ending by mid evening. It will be a little on the breezy side as well with northwest winds between 10-20 miles per hour.

Tuesday it looks like we could see showers again with only slightly warmer temperatures. Highs should be in the low 50s.

It's better by the Busch Bash Wednesday with sun and highs in the mid 60s.

Now that I think about it hat may not be a curve ball at all from Mother Nature for Monday…closer to a spitter!
