The ten day computer system is a crap shoot for the most part. High pressures and low pressures jump out of nowhere sometimes with no more than 2 days notice.

It might be an acurate guess, but I am guessing that most of the tempreature comes from the average high/low for that day anyway.

That would be awesome. We're looking at temps in the mid to high 60's for Tues and Wed of next week, so you never know.

Yeah...then it cools off just in time for the Brewers games.

Nice thing is the roof will probably be closed for those.

Prepare yourself for the worst. The past two MLB Opening Days, where the Sox were on the road, the temps were pushing 60's-70's in the Chicago area and, when the Sox had their Opening Day a week later in Chicago, the temps were lucky to top out at 50 with sunshine.

Unfortunately, it will still make for a mighty cold tailate session :(:

National Weather Service calling for Partly Sunny skies with temps in the upper 50's for opening day. Hopefully the forecast holds, but it is still a week away. Just one week away. Just one week away. Just one week away. It sounds so good to hear after a long winter.

Tommy Skillethead pegged the temps on opening day to be in the low 60's.

That means it'll be lower 40's with wet snow showers. These weathermen don't know anything.

I do have faith in Skillet head, he is the onlly thing worthwhile on WGN, IMO

Weatherman is my future job, but don't worry I take no offense. I'm already used to the criticism. Anyway, most of these guys on TV are just bozos that only have a degree in television broadcasting, however, Skilling is a bona fide meteorologist, so I would take his word. Also, National Weather Service (www.weather.gov (http://www.weather.gov)), which is much more accurate than weather.com, is still calling for Partly Sunny and highs near 60. I don't want to seem like I'm getting defensive, but I think, for now, we'll have a nice opening day for once.

BTW, anybody wanting to become a TV meteorologist, beware because it is a stressful job, I've interviewed a few and they say it's not as easy as it looks. Anyway, one good point of making it your major is that I get to go storm chasing tomorrow with the chase team here at Valpo.

They ran out of hot chocolate and coffee by the 6th inning. People were drinking cups of hot water.:(:

Right. I have a hard time taking Brandt Miller seriously as a weather forecaster since I know he was working as a DJ at Z-95 with Barsky about 15 years ago.

Drink beer. Once is starts flowing, outside cold doesn't bother you anymore :tongue: . Hot drinks don't work. They keep you warm while you're drinking them, but they leave you cold when you run out.

And last year wasn't bad at all. It was in the low 50's.

It was freezing last year. The wind chill had to be in the low 30's or 20's.

NEW UPDATE

Tom Skilling's new forcast for Monday.

70 49 Partly sunny, milder again. New round of 70s gets underway. A shower or t-storm/two canít be ruled out.

I don't think I've been to a pleasant opening day at Comiskey, so I'm holding out for 70, even if it's overcast.

The past few years have been brutal. Was it 2003 when it started out in the upper 50s and then plunged to the low 40s by the third inning or so? How about 2001 or so, when Osuna gave up a game-winning grannie to Tony Clark and the wind chill was in the 20s/30s?

IIRC in 2003 it plunged to the 40s before the game started, then there was a couple hour rain delay. Lotta people left before the game started; it turned out to be a great game by Loaiza and the Sox won. Fortunately, the cold weather drove me home early in 2001 so I didn't see Osuna blow the game.

Yup... I got really drunk at that game, then I danced the night away in an empty Cubby Bear to celbrate the victory! one of the best opening day nights ever!

We left the ball park got to Archer and Damen to go on 55 The sun came out and Willsy announced they were taking the tarp off of the field we turned around went back to the park, the security guards let us right back in and it was a great time.

I think you are right wth both of the years. It was awful in 2003 and 2001. Wasn't 2001 a rain soaked (2 hour delays as well).

Tom Skilling has 71.

(And memo to Hangar: Skilling aka wgntv.com actually advertises Monday as being "White Sox home opener!" Yes, with an exclamation point. How are you going to spin that?)

I remember one year (2000?) where it was actually nicer on opening day than it was on the 4th of July. The last weather report I saw was WGN saying 67 for Monday. We can only hope.................

Dude, Miller was a DJ on WLS in the 70s when I was a kid.

Likeable guy, though, even if he doesn't know what he's doing...:bandance:

Was it him or John "Records" Landecker that used to do "boogie check"?

I still have all my WLS and WCFL weekly surveys from 1973-79 or so. Brant's pretty picture was often featured.
