It's the annual rite of going from winter to spring: Major League Baseball's Spring Training.
It could be a wet start to Spring Training 2014 as a front stalls across south-central Florida, AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Brian Edwards said.
"There may be multiple opportunities for showers and thunderstorms," Edwards said.
The Oakland Athletics and the San Francisco Giants open Cactus League play with a 3:05 p.m. EST start at Scottsdale Stadium, Scottsdale, Ariz. At the same time, the Cincinnati Reds and Cleveland Indians take the field at Goodyear Ballpark, Goodyear, Ariz.
"There will be comfortable temperatures in the mid- to upper 70s with partly sunny skies Wednesday through Friday," Edwards said.
There may be a chance of rain for the weekend in Arizona but it depends on how much precipitation may move through as a result of a storm system expected to bring beneficial rains to California.
