BOSTON (CBS) – It’s going to be a great day for the Home Opener at Fenway Park.

Check: Interactive Radar  |  Current Conditions  |  Weather Blogs

The weather will be very cooperative for the big event with pleasant temperatures.

The morning cloudiness will thin enabling brighter sunshine for the afternoon. Compared to the gusty winds over the weekend, it should be just a breeze at 5-15 mph out there today but the wind direction is key.

It will shift from the southwest to the west-northwest this morning then flip to the east-southeast by noon. That move will prompt cooling along the coast and some of that will penetrate into and beyond Fenway Park.

I am predicting a rise to the lower 60′s by noon before a reversal sets in and the temperature starts receding a bit by the time the first pitch is thrown.

By the end of the game, expect the temperature closer to about 55. Any rain will hold off until overnight.
