Mother Nature isn’t getting in the Bears’ way this week as they kick off their 100th season against the Green Bay Packers at Soldier Field.
Despite a stormy Tuesday that left serious damage in parts of the Chicago area, it appears conditions will stay dry throughout the day Thursday.
The day will see partly sunny skies met with pleasantly cool conditions, so fans tailgating at Soldier Field or watching from Grant Park might want to dress a little warmer or bring layers.
Around 3 p.m., temperatures are expected to sit at around 74 degrees, dropping to around 70 by kickoff.
As the game comes to an end, temperatures are forecast to be in the mid-60s.
With the weather already a victory for fans and players, let’s hope the team can make it a win-win.
