THIS MAY BE AN INSTANCE EVEN THE NFL CAN'T CONTROL
The National Football League works so hard to make sure it's big event, the Super Bowl, is just right in every way. In these days of indoor arenas to keep the elements out of the mix for it's championship game, I'm sure the leadership who selected Miami as the site for Super Bowl XLI figured that the Almighty would insure clear skies and warm temperatures for the perfect Chamber of Commerce scene.
The likelihood of that happening is only partially right. The forecast from the National Weather Service Miami office for the big weekend:
Saturday: Isolated showers and thunderstorms. Partly cloudy, with a high near 78. North wind between 6 and 9 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.
Saturday Night: Scattered showers and thunderstorms. Partly cloudy, with a low around 62. North wind between 10 and 15 mph, with gusts as high as 21 mph. Chance of precipitation is 50%.
Sunday: A chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 73. Breezy, with a north wind between 14 and 16 mph, with gusts as high as 23 mph. Chance of precipitation is 50%.
Sunday Night: A 40 percent chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 61. Breezy, with a northeast wind between 15 and 18 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph.
Those folks who plan to attend will definately need their slickers...at least, those who will be watching from the Dolphin Stadium stands.
