Perfect weather for clubbing a baby seal.
Game Day Weather
Expect a beautiful September Saturday as high pressure moves through the Ohio Valley/Southern Michigan throughout the day. Clear skies overnight lead to a lot of warm sunshine for the start of the weekend, and we'll keep a light northerly breeze.
If you're up-an-at-em early you'll need some long-sleeves... 48 degrees for 8am, with mostly clear skies and a light north wind. We'll hit the 50s quickly after that, hitting 60 degrees for 10am. By the time you're putting the hot dogs on the grill for lunch, we're up near 70, seeing lots of sun, and feeling a wind out of the north at 5-7mph (you'll feel the wind on your skin, might have a few leaves rustle).
73 degrees for our kickoff with just a few clouds in the sky. Winds are out of the NNW at 5mph.
We'll keep a few fair weather clouds that have built in throughout the afternoon hours-but still keeping a lot of that sun! We'll hit our high for the day here at 75 degrees, winds out of the NNW at 5-9mph (may see a few twigs blow around with those leaves).
Mostly sunny, a light northerly wind, and temperatures lingering around 70 as you head out of the Big House. We'll see the sun turn to stars in keeping clear skies all evening, and the winds will gradually shift to be coming out of the east (still light) by closing time. Still in the mid 50s by 11pm, but dropping into the upper 40s if you're walking home late after celebrating the win! Go Blue!

Honestly I like the 45-55 degree days the best, with some clouds and a very slight breeze, so that you need a hoodie or jacket. That is football weather to me.
Always appreciate these detailed forecasts
Some prose with our recast. Sounds like football.
