Game Day Weather

Submitted by mgoweather on November 3rd, 2012 at 4:04 AM

An approaching low pressure system will keep the clouds around, but we'll have temps reach into the 40s with light winds. Not bad for a November day of football in midwest!

If you're headed to Minneapolis...

Tailgating

Might see a flurry or two if you're out and about early, but those chances deplete as you hit sunrise. Chilly morning despite the very light winds - mid 30s by 8am, but the wind chill will still have it feeling a bit cooler-closer to 30 degrees. Fill your travel jug with some hot coffee! Overcast skies, with maybe a peek of the sun here and there.

Kickoff

39 degrees for the start with cloudy skies. Winds are out of the east at about 5mph. Despite the light winds, bundle up because the wind chill will have it feeling like 35.

Halftime

We'll continue to see a lot of that cloud cover stick around, seeing a glimpse here and there of the sun. Temperature has gone up just a bit to 42, but expect the wind chill to have it feeling around 38. Winds are out of the east-southeast at 5mph.

Post-Game

Hitting near the high as you leave the game, reaching 45 degrees, wind chill about 40. Still keeping mainly overcast skies into the overnight hours, with light to calm east-southeast winds. Temps drop to 40 around dinner, and then into the 30s after 10pm. If you're staying out late, the cloud cover drops after last call and we'll see partly sunny skies for Sunday. Have safe travels if you're headed to the game, and go blue!

 

If you're staying in Ann Arbor...

High pressure keeps us in beautiful weather for the start of the weekend. Mostly sunny skies with high temps around 45 for lunchtime. Winds are out of the north-northeast at about 7-8mph all day. If you're headed to dinner after the game-temps drop to 40 by 6pm and low 30s by 10pm with mostly clear skies. Keep in mind the wind chill won't have it feeling above 40 and at night it will feel like the upper 20s-so grab that extra layer if you'll be out late! Go blue!
