How to Watch Opening Day: Chicago White Sox vs. Detroit Tigers

NBC Chicago's Brant Miller says winds coming out of the north at 10-to-15 miles per hour will likely push the wind chill toward the freezing mark, making for a cold day at the ballpark for visiting fans.

Fortunately for the White Sox and Tigers, weather will slowly start to clear as the weekend moves along, meaning that some baseball will still be played, even if temperatures remain on the cool side for the rest of the series.
