The Northeast is no stranger to epic, never-ending winters that can stretch well into spring and this year is no different.

A spring snowstorm has impacted the home opener for the New York Yankees, who were scheduled to take on the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday.

Instead, the game will be pushed to Tuesday.

Across town, the weather has postponed the New York Mets game against the Philadelphia Phillies.

That game will be made up on July 9th as part of a doubleheader, according to a team announcement.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone said he still plans to start lefty Jordan Montgomery, instead of moving Luis Severino up a day.

On the flip side, the Rays will move start Chris Archer up a day to tomorrow.
