Sounds promising for tailgating, too.
Opening Night, Saturday, April 6, looks about the same to weather.com, but AccuWeather serves up even more cause for optimism.
The game's at 7:05 p.m., and that afternoon could see a high of 71 - a temperature not seen so far this year - also with "bright sunshine," AccuWeather says.
The nighttime forecast, though, suggests a strong possibility of showers.
The timing of any rain is unclear, though, and, admittedly, forecasts are guesstimates more than a few days away.
Weather.com sees only a 20 percent chance of rain Saturday night.
Rain might still be around on Sunday, when the Phillies give kids a Wiffle ball and bat set, and take on the Royals at 1:05 p.m.
Fans can get Opening Day tickets from the team by ordering a Three Game Pack (also choose another April game, plus one from the rest of the season) or by showing up at noon before the game, when 500 standing-room tickets go on sale at the First Base Gate ticket windows. Limit two per buyer.
Opening Night can be purchased by itself through the Phillies website. Standing-room tickets go on sale at 4 p.m. prior to the game. Fans 14 and under get a small replica of Jimmy Rollins's Gold Glove trophy.
