The weather doesn't look too bad by kickoff on Saturday. It will rain late Friday night into Saturday morning. It should dry out by kickoff, with mostly cloudy skies and a high temperature around 60. The wind will be out of the west around 10 mph.

We may get a swirl of wind in the Upper Visitors side in 211.

I'll make sure Mrs. Billd is prepared....

As for me, sounds great.

Hope so but my hopes are dwindling.

Both NWS and WU are saying rain until late PM and NWS is calling for wind gusts up to 30mph.

Sometimes those 50s and dreary games are the "coldest" games if only because folks don't come prepared.

Warm socks, light gloves ... maybe hand warmers for some folks wouldn't hurt to bring.

The forecast has unfortunately so far been holding solid with rain or showers through pretty much the whole tailgate and game. Our pansified fan base with their Metrodome memories don't exactly come out in force for the games in the rain, unfortunately. I'll be there either way but dang... I hope the forecast of rain goes away.

Feel like a sloppy track also favors our overall size advantage and really mitigates their couple of guys with a ton of speed. Though who am I kidding, feel we’re far better in any conditions and hopefully the guys on the field show ot

I like this link better myself, bit easier to read: https://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?CityName=Minneapolis&state=MN&site=MPX&textField1=44.9618&textField2=-93.2668&e=0

Looks like 100% chance of rain both Friday night and Saturday. I have a feeling it's gonna be rainy the whole tailgate and game, and certainly not warm (but not cold by any means). It is homecoming, but with a lower level opponent, I don't think it's gonna sellout. We'll see, hope I'm wrong.

Looks like 100% of chain both Friday night and Saturday. I have a feeling it's gonna be rainy the whole tailgate and game, and certainly not warm (but not cold by any means). It is homecoming, but with a lower level opponent, I don't think it's gonna sellout. We'll see, hope I'm wrong.
If chains are falling from the sky, count me out.

forecast for Saturday seems to be solidifying into a rainy tailgate, but clearing and switching to showers in time for the game, where there is a decent chance it won't rain at all during the game and the chance of rain declining throughout. It looks better than it did a few days ago. We'll see how it changes further over the next 48 hours. Hopefully the system will move more quickly where it rains over night into early Friday morning and then clears up. That's what I am hoping for.

I hope you're right. My link says 100% chance of rain for Saturday.

I think that is accurate, it is a 100% chance of rain. But the hourly forecast shows the chance of rain going from 68% at 6 AM, to 59% at 10 AM, to 50% at 2 PM, to 24% at 6 PM and then continuing to fall, into the night.
