Weather Forecast for Football Sunday in Green Bay
(From the National Weather Service)
BROWN- INCLUDING GREEN BAY 950 AM CST SUN JAN 20 2008
...COLD CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE TODAY AND TONIGHT...
AN ARCTIC AIRMASS WILL CONTINUE TO AFFECT GREEN BAY AND NORTHEAST WISCONSIN TODAY. MID-MORNING TEMPERATURES WERE NEAR 10 BELOW ZERO IN GREEN BAY...WITH WIND CHILLS OF 30 BELOW TO 35 BELOW. SUNNY SKIES DURING THE DAY WILL ONLY HELP A LITTLE. THE WIND WILL COMBINE WITH THE COLD TEMPERATURES TO PRODUCE WIND CHILLS AROUND 25 BELOW THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING.
IF YOU HAVE PLANS TO BE OUTSIDE TODAY OR TONIGHT...MAKE SURE YOU ARE DRESSED FOR THE WEATHER. SEVERAL LAYERS OF LIGHT CLOTHING PROVIDE MORE WARMTH THAN A SINGLE HEAVY LAYER. BE SURE TO WEAR A HAT AND GLOVES OR MITTENS. AVOID ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES...THEY CAUSE THE BODY TO LOSE HEAT MORE RAPIDLY.
Ah, what refreshing Wisconsin weather. It will be almost June-like today when the Pack takes the field to kick the Cheney out of the New York Giants.
The Pack has a long history of beating lesser teams in brisk June-like weather such as eastern Wisconsin is experiencing today.
Remember back to late January 1967 during the Second Stupid Bowl when there were just 9 seconds left and the Pack was trailing the same malingering New York team. The air temperature was about the same (-11 or so) when Bart Starr did a quarterback sneak and made it over the goal line. The Packers, of course, were dressed in shorts and Hawaiian shirts (under their green and gold snow suits) and relished playing in the brisk summer weather.
Today should be a repeat.
The one thing that surprises me in this weather statement is the suggestion to not drink alcoholic beverages. WHAT? This is Wisconsin you're talking about you nimrods. We go from mother's milk to beer in that state. That thing about no alcohol must have been written by some pussy Giants fan.
