No one had created one yet and the other was getting crowded. Go Blue!
Thank you for the warm thoughts last week! Hopefully you've had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, and we all get to be thankful for another win today! At least the weather will be on the warmer side! Low pressure may still be off to the west in the Dakotas, but that doesn't mean the warm front isn't having an impact on us - temps have been slowly rising since yesterday and will generally continue to do so today as the front passes north. The warmer air is bringing more moisture with it, so expect some cloud cover and drizzly spots throughout the day as we reach the mid 40s. Overall, not too shabby of a day for November football!
If you're traveling to Columbus...
Starting the early morning hours with a few breaks in the clouds, but approaching mid-morning the clouds have really filled in and it's turned overcast. We'll keep most of those clouds around throughout the morning and walking into the stadium. Grab the exra layer to begin the day, with temps in the low 30s until closer to 10am, then we start edging our way closer to 40. Winds are out of the SSE at 10mph (leaves and small twigs blow around). Doesn't sound like much, but that little breeze is enough to put the wind chills to 30 - order that coffee hot (and maybe spiked)!
Our warm-up continues for the start of the game! 42 degrees for the start. The wind will be out of the south at 15mph (loose paper blows about, small branches sway), so it will still feel like 35 degrees. You might see a little brightness trying to make its way through the clouds, but don't expect much, and it won't last long if you do.
Pretty darn comfy for the end of November! Sitting at 45 degrees for the half with cloudy skies. We may have a little drizzle develop later in the second half, but it's only a small chance. Winds remain out of the south at a steady 15mph, but we'll see a few gusts up around 20mph here and there (white horses would form on the water, small trees sway). That means the annoying wind chill is still there too - but it will only drop that feels-like temp to 40.
Not too bad! (Hopefully that's what we're saying about the game too) 46 degrees outside leaving the stadium. We'll have overcast skies, and there is a slight chance for a little drizzle - that will stay with us throughout the rest of the day. If you're headed out on the town, temperatures stay fairly constant the rest of the afternoon and evening, slowly rising to the upper 40s by midnight. We do get rid of the few gusts we had in the afternoon, and for the remainder of the night keep south winds at 15mph. Sunday brings us another warm day with scattered rain showers, but we turn cold again Sunday night.
If you're staying in Ann Arbor...
A little cooler here despite seeing some sunshine early on in the day. Clouds move in across the area throughout the day, and we'll keep a chance for some drizzle or a passing light rain shower with us through the afternoon. By game time we're still in the upper 30s. Winds will be out of the south at around 15mph with gusts around 20mph (wind chill still feeling like 30). We make it to 40 in the early afternoon, but it takes until late-night for us to hit the mid 40s here.
