things go poorly
A comfortable warm start to the first ever Big House night game, looking at 71 degrees for the kick off and a light breeze out of the SSE. Some of you eager tailgaters (or those of you who spent the night camped out to get a spot near ESPN's tent) saw some showers come through the area. We are going to see that rain shift southward, particularly south of I-94, as the remnants of what was tropical storm Lee finally push out towards the northeast. Shower chances will continue to decrease throughout the evening and overnight but the clouds will stick around. For halftime we'll drop just a little into the mid 60s, keeping a very calm wind out of the SE, and unfortunately there is still that slight chance of small shower passing through the area. As you leave the stadium tonight (to celebrate the win of course) temperatures will still be in the low 60s, and stay there through last call. The further North you are, the lesser chance you have of cloud cover and/or rain, but the lower your temperatures will be.
Enjoy the game and Go Blue!

Game starts slowly then picks up towards the end of the second quarter. We manage to kick a field goal!
Just getting it set up. No, it doesn't make the next 8 hours go any faster. But here's hoping it's a short third of a day.
