Thank you for such nice comments last week! Very kind of you :) The weather, unfortunately, is not looking so kind. We have a strong low pressure system moving through the Great Lakes region. While we're under the warm front Friday that means a some sun and very mild temps. But the cold front is swinging through overnight, bringing a few scattered rain showers, and behind it we turn much cooler. Don't be surprised if you see flurries flying through the day Saturday! Strong NW winds will also make it feel even colder than the readings on the thermometer. It's a day you'll definitely want all of those heavier layers! Let's bring home a win over Indiana!
Temps will be steadily falling through the overnight hours, reaching the mid 30s if you're up early. Winds will be out of the WSW at about 20mph (small trees will sway, you'd see a lot of white horses on the water) gusting up to around 30mph (large branches move, empty garbage cans may tip over). We do have a brief dry period right near sunrise towards mid-morning, so not a bad time to get the tent up - and tie it down. And then fire up that hot crockpot chili asap! Through mid-morning temps will be around 40 but the wind will have it feeling like the mid 30s. We bring back the chance for scattered showers/mix/flurries and that stays with us through lunch. Midday winds will be out of the W at 20mph gusting into the low 30s (whole trees sway, it can become a bit difficult to walk against the wind).
39 degrees for this kickoff! Brrr! We'll have a lot of cloud cover, and don't rule out some wintry mix or flurries falling as the first whistle blows. Speaking of blowing (get your minds out of the gutter!) it'll be windy! Steady WNW winds are up into the low 20s and gusting into the low 30s. This wouldn't be a bad game to have some of those little hand warmers in your pocket!
Hot chocolate anyone? Losing a couple of degrees by the half! Mid 30s for the halftime show with the chance you'll see some wintry mix and flurries. Winds will be out of the NW still in the low 20s and gusting into the low 30s. That breeze will have it feeling like the upper 20s by now.
Dropping to the low 30s as we walk out of those gates, win in [heavily gloved but still half frozen] hand. Wind chills will have it feeling like 25 and we'll still have plenty of clouds, and the possibility of a few flurries. Winds will be steady inthe low 20s out of the NW, and we're not getting rid of those gusts anytime soon. They'll be into the mid 30s for the evening (if you were in a tall building you'd feel it sway). By the late night gusts will be up around 40mph (it can veer your car on the road) - that's gale force wind gusts, so be careful getting home if you're planning on staying out late! Temperature-wise, we'll be in the low 30s with mostly cloudy skies and a couple of flurries here and there. The wind chill will fall to around 20 degrees! We aren't expecting much snowfall accumulation, but don't be surprised to get a good dusting when all is said and done. If you traveled, Sunday in A2 will bring a few early flurries, some sun, and highs in the low 30s -with it feeling like the 20s all day thanks to a breezy NW wind. Let's go blue!!
