The Yankees have postponed Monday’s Opening Day game due to inclement weather.

The Yankees were initially set to go up against the Houston Astros at Yankee Stadium at 1:05 p.m.

Instead, the game has been moved to Tuesday at the same time, the Yankees announced.

The National Weather Service said rain is likely to persist throughout the day Monday. Tuesday, however, is expected to be mostly sunny.
