“Weatherman! Weatherman! Weatherman!” The cheer rises to a crescendo in Notre Dame Stadium as the Fighting Irish battle the Chippewas of Central Michigan University. And why not? Today will feature Goldilocks football weather: Not too hot, not too cold... just right. It’ll be warm enough to suit the senior citizens in attendance (like me). It’ll be cloudy enough that the student section won’t look like boiled lobsters by the end of the game. Look for a high today of 76 with a light southwest breeze at 5 mph. Simply perfect. I can hear the crowd chanting already...

After the game ends, things change just a bit. We have a chance of rain showers starting late tonight and lingering through the afternoon on Sunday. High tomorrow near 70°.

Cool and cloudy conditions hang around on Monday before turning sunny and warm again starting Tuesday. No significant rainfall or severe weather is in the forecast through all of next week.And who knows? Maybe next week against Ohio State, the Buckeye fans will show their appreciation for the local weather guy, too. Yeah, I doubt that. ;)
