Fenway Park weather update

This from the Red Sox:

The current weather forecast in the vicinity of Fenway Park calls for showers and thunderstorms during the early evening hours. Conditions are expected to improve as the evening progresses.

All Fenway Park gates will open as regularly scheduled at 5:40 p.m. with a limited opening on Yawkey Way at 5:10 p.m.. The Red Sox are hopeful that tonight’s game against the Kansas City Royals, which is scheduled to start at 7:10 p.m., will be played. However, the Red Sox want to alert our fans to the possibility of a delay.

This forecast is of course subject to change as the evening progresses. Additional updates will be provided as necessary.
