According to the National Weather Service Cleveland, temperatures when the western portion of the Muni Lot opens at 5 p.m. will be around 85 degrees, with a heat index of 88, and a 20 percent chance of rain. Don’t forget to pack plenty of water (yes, water) and a hat.

Temperature at kickoff should be around 81 degrees, while rain chances are about 10 percent throughout the rest of the evening.

As the game moves forward, temperatures will dip into the upper-70s, providing for a warm but dry evening.
