There are two reasons why I bring you the Detroit weather forecast for the rest of the week.

One, because it’s always good to plan ahead. You may expect Anaheim weather and get Wisconsin weather, like I did in 1999.

Two, because I’ve heard people wondering whether warm weather would negatively impact the ice at Ford Field.

So, here goes, courtesy the National Weather Service:

Wednesday: Showers and possibly a thunderstorm. High 73.

Thursday: Chance of showers. High 52.

Friday: Partly sunny. High 52.

Saturday: Mostly sunny. High 55.

Sunday: Mostly sunny. High 62.

It sounds like they’re doing a pretty good job of keeping the building (60 degrees) and ice (low-20s) temperatures in place even though it has been warm in recent days.

Then again, let’s wait until they add 30,000 people to the building to judge.

  • Frostbitten Toes

    The Great Fighting Sioux relying on the success of lowly Robert Morris…… pretty pathetic, kind of like getting frostbite again…

    • Siouxbetcha

      That’s probably the most ignorant comment I’ve heard. Do you really think the Sioux need to “rely” on Robert Morris. The Sioux are in the DANCE and will have plenty of oportunities to improve their already stout TUC record . Seedings only matter to teams who are host institutions or those near one. The Sioux fans will follow their team over seas if thats where the game is played. I think any true fan can understand the parody involved in the tourney and that all 16 teams are contenders. Whether your the 1 seed or 16, there will be no easy wins. The Sioux will make their own luck.

      As for the PWR, the only thing stupid about it is that H2H wins aren’t considered as a TUC win in that comparison. All TUC games should be counted in all comparisons.

    Once again showing the stupidity of the Pairwise.

  • Mountainman

    I wish they would change the term “RPI”. Everytime I see it all I can think of is Rennselear Poly.

  • bombsaway

    Something else for the Sioux fans to whine about.
