    However, since the game isn't until for another couple of weeks, I prefer to wait until the day before to start worrying about it.

    Re: Weather for Season Opener

    Bring this back on the Monday before the game. I think that it is pretty hard to predict the weather 2 weeks out.

    Re: Weather for Season Opener

    You're both right, but I will say the few times this summer I have used AccuWeather to get predictions 2 weeks out, they have been right each time...

    Meterologists can barely predict night.. I refuse to worry about them saying its going to rain in two weeks

    Thats because its been easy this summer. All you had to do was predict rain and chances are you were right.
    Hopefully the Sept weather is more true to form and is fabulous!

    I doubt it rains. These early weather things are hardly ever right.

    I'll be standing, because I'm that sort of fan.

    Meteorologists are just making educated guesses. Would you bet money on their predictions? Perhaps,,because some fools would.
