Ok so weather.com is saying it is going to rain all day long in AA.. So the golf course will be closed i assume? Even with the chance that it will rain they close it right?
I guess ill be trying to find a spot at Pioneer early
of manball with frequent Denard strikes.
I've got the weather.com page up for Ann Arbor and it's only saying a 40% chance. I'm not saying I doubt you but I'd like to know what to plan for. So if you have a link to what you're seeing I'd like to have the most up to date info.
It says 40% too, but then you look at the Hourly forecast and here it is
Rain all day, but who knows.. Every site just about says something different. Im def. bringing rain gear though
I'll stay away from the rain gear though. It'll already be hot and I'm not trying to be like a wrestler cutting weight.
If you click over to the hourly tab and look at tomorrow's forecast, it shows 40 percent liklihood most of the day, including 3 to 6 (game time). they show the picture of the thunderstorm because there is a liklihood of rain/storm, but it doesn't mean that it will "rain all day."
On Wunderground, the only weather site worth visiting, the forecast isn't quite so doom and gloom:
Partly sunny through mid morning...then becoming mostly cloudy. A slight chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs 89 to 93...with a heat index around 95. Light and variable winds...becoming west 5 to 15 mph...then turning to south late. Chance of rain 20 percent.
It's going to be sticky.
Wow could it be any worse? Bring the gold bond.
they close the golf course unless it gets real bad.
It rained last year at the Umass tailgate. It was also rainy/drizzling all day at the Penn St. game back in 2009 and the course was open. I think they're more concerned with monsoon/prolonged rain conditions.
that's true i was at that game and we did tailgate on the golf course. Hopefully it won't get bad
go to weather underground, it says only 20% and looks much better
Holding out hope that accuweather is spot on with their forecast. Unfortunately, they seem to be the outlier.
Edit: Per the above responders, weather underground also provides reason for optimism.
are like recruiting sites...the one that tells you what you want to hear is always the best (and this could change from one day to the next).
... says this now:
Saturday: A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Partly sunny, with a high near 91. Calm wind becoming west between 6 and 9 mph.
Saturday Night: Showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 66. North northwest wind between 5 and 7 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%.
I think the main storms from the front will pass through tonight/tomorrow morning. The cold front is already half way through Wisconsin and should push through completely by tomorrow afternoon -- most of the activity looks to be ahead of it.
The sooner it rains, the better off we are for tomorrow. It looks like tonight will be wet.
They are more concerned about it raining all night before and soaking up the course. That tears it up worse than a few showers durning the day. They'll park tomorrow I'm sure
30 percent tonight -- although, given the nature of this system, if it does rain, it's gonna pour. But, I'm thinking we should be fine here.
Looks good for most of the day Saturday now. It'll be hot, of course, but what else is new. That first game always is. Washington 2002, anyone?
...we're HOT HOT HOT like Appalachian State, eh???
Weather.gov: 20% chance of rain
Weather.com: 40% chance of rain with showers all day
Accuweather.com: 60% chance. Periods of sun with a T-Storm.
Wunderground.com 20% chance of rain. Possible thunderstorms.
...in my experience, the NWS (weather.gov) and Wunderground are the most reliable. Accuweather, by way, is one of the most inaccurate sources out there -- at least insofar as I have found. Not surprisingly, as it is based in State College, PA, and run by a bunch of PSU slappies.
There's a 30% chance it's already raining.
100% chance of totally-better-than-anything-else-you-can-be-doing regardless of the weather.
