Opening Day 2024: Will rain impact Mets home opener?

Thursday is Opening Day for the New York Mets!

While thousands of fans will be excited to attend this year's home opener at Citi Field in Flushing, Queens, the weather may not cooperate, the forecast shows.

"This is the main storm that will be coming through, bringing the clouds and showers," FOX 5 NY's Mike Woods said. "Looks like late Wednesday into Thursday is when those showers will swing by."

The Amazins are scheduled to face the Milwaukee Brewers at 1:10 p.m.

"Still a few days out so there's still room for the forecast to shift, but it's also Opening Day so they likely dont want to mess around," the X account Mets Weather posted Monday.

Have the Mets ever postponed Opening Day?

Mets fans: Let's hope Thursday isn't a repeat of last year's Opening Day.

In 2023, the scheduled home opener against the Miami Marlins on Thursday, April 6, was postponed.

And in 2022, the first game of the season against the Nationals in Washington was delayed thanks to inclement weather.
