Surprisingly, for the second straight week the roof will be open at Lucas Oil Stadium. What does that mean for the weather for this game.
The Colts typically don’t open the roof for too many home games. Last week was a welcome change when they played the Texans. It was perfect weather for it then. This week, the Colts have decided to open it again while keeping the window closed.
That means that there will be some affect on the game in terms of weather. At kickoff, it should be around 57 degrees and mostly cloudy. By the time the game will be ending, it will be around 61 degrees and mostly sunny, which is perfect weather.
The wind won’t be too much of a factor either. It’s supposed to be blowing about 9 mph when the game starts. But it’s supposed to continue going down throughout the duration of the game. It shouldn’t have any affect on the passing game or the kicking game.
I have been advocating for the team to open the roof more often, and they seem to be obliging. Having the roof open is a better gameday experience. The fall weather is also perfect weather for football to be played in. Fans certainly enjoy it as well.
The Colts are now 9-9 when both the roof and the window are open in Lucas Oil Stadium. Only the roof will be open today, as the window will be closed. But the Colts should still play well no matter what the weather conditions are.
